never again

My Dearest Evaleigh,

You will never be as young as you are today.
You will never be as small as you are today.

So, for that I will breathe you in a little deeper and I will look at you a little longer.
I cherish every tiny moment I have with you.

Today while I was nursing you I was looking at your little squirmy body and reminiscing about your newborn days.  I missed them.  Then I wondered, "What is before me now that I will miss later?"  I want to be present in every moment of your life.  I want to cherish every stage you are in.
  So, I paused and enjoyed that very moment.
You are the joy of my life.
I love you my tiny growing baby.

your mother

As Addison turns 6 months this week I wonder where in the world my tiny baby went. It's crazy, soak in every single moment.

I love this post! It's exactly the way I feel. My baby girl turned 10 months old today. It goes by soooo fast! It is bittersweet to watch them grow up. I think it is so important to keep this perspective, especially on the hard days.
