Every time she accomplishes a new thing, I remember nostalgically about the day she was born and holding this tiny little being in my arms for the first time. So precious, so helpless…. so still. This week was one of those milestone moments in our house – my mini took her first steps. One small step for baby, one giant leap towards toddlerhood. Not sure if I’m ready for that.
Somedays I want her to be my baby forever, but then I know I’ll miss out on all these firsts that are happening. It’s interesting how torn you can feel between wanting them to grow up and run/walk/play…. but still wanting the constant snuggles.
We’re impatiently awaiting the arrival of my first niece and so I’m hoping to get my fill of newborn snuggles soon because this mom’s uterus is closed for business…. For now.
