I can't believe how fast this year is passing us by. Today is March 1 and that just blows my mind. Wasn't it just yesterday that Adelaide was born? Or that Lincoln wanted to brush his teeth every five minutes?
Those moments slip by so quickly and are easily forgotten in the midst of the daily responsibilities that come with having babies. I am trying so hard to keep up with my Project Life album and also record stories here on the blog. Someday, I know I will want to remember the things that they say and do that may seem insignificant now.
Here are a few memories I am currently holding onto tightly - hoping that they don't end too quickly.
-Precious little smiles and excitement about nursing. When I grab the Boppy and pull her close, she is so excited. It's like nursing is the best part of her world. I love this time before she realizes there are other things to do and see throughout the day!
-Rocking my sweet boy to sleep. How much longer do I have left until he decides it's not cool? There have only been a handful of nights in his two years (maybe 3-5) that I have not rocked him before bed. What will I do when this ends?
-The startle reflex. It may freak some people out, but I think it's adorable. She only does this a few times a week at this point.
-The first time he said mama - and meant it (unlike when it referred to his binky). Yes - my heart flips every time he says it to me. I've waited a long time.
-It drives me absolutely crazy, but the way he runs headlong into my legs. Or runs over my toes with a toy. I'm pretty sure we are both bruised, but the boy loves with absolute reckless abandon. He deserves some credit for that.
-The fact that she can't move yet. This one is so close to being over - she actually rolled from back to tummy yesterday morning, but it was on the somewhat angled couch so I'm not convinced she has mastered the skill yet.
-How nursing is good enough to fix any problem. For both of them. It's like magic.
-The way he holds my hand when he wants to show me something. Seriously, little man. You know how to get to Mommy's heartstrings.
Do you have any particular memories with your kids right now that you especially want to preserve?
