Tuesday, August 3

A year later...

I'm having a hard tmie coming to grips with the fact that it is August already and that in a week she will be 21 months old! And in a few months she will be two!  I know it sounds cliche but time really does fly by when they're so little.  Part of me can't wait to see her next phase of development, and part of me wants to freeze her just as she is so she can't get any bigger!  That way she will love me forever and never reach adolesence and realize she hates me.  But today I was feeling nostalgic for last year when she was almost nine months old (such a fun age!!)  So I thought I would share some pictures from last July with all of you so you can see for yourself how much growing she did in just a year!

A Year ago she was:

Smiling socially!! That one took awhile, she was a very serious infant.
Eating solid food, still can't get her to eat eggs!
Discovering the camera

Sitting up on her own
And getting stuck in boxes?
(this one is just funny..or maybe we're just really bad parents )

I love you Emma-Jean, even though each age has it's difficulties. I know that someday I will look back at the terrible twos and wish that I had just a few minutes with your 21 month old self.  I will miss the spontaneous hugs and the big gooey kisses and the silly way you say "pwease!" and reading you the same books over and over while you cuddle in my lap.  I love you Peanut!

I hear you... time moves on, even when you don't want it to. But you're not alone. But the older they get, the more you get to know them, so it offsets. I guess....
