I heard this saying a while back and thought “well, that doesn’t make sense:. Then I had kids. Every single bit is true. Some days seem soooo long but then the month passes in the blink of an eye.
I don’t know what it is about the second (third) child but they seem to grow faster than the first (s). Before you correct me, yes, I know I have three babies but the first two came in a pair. Maddie is my “second go round” at the whole baby thing. And I cannot tell you enough how wonderful this child is (and this will bite me in the butt for bragging). She is always smiling. I do mean always. The happiest little girl I've ever seen and not a care in the world. She is just a joy to be around and will make your day when its been a bad one.
I feel like we were at the hospital yesterday meeting her and now? Here we are.. almost SIX months later. Where has time gone? Does it go by quicker because of the toddlers? I just don’t know. I do know one thing and that is I want it to slow down. Pretty please.
Because I know that it is impossible and I do know how fast time goes, I'm trying to soak up every.single.second with her. If she wants to be rocked, I'm going to rock her. If she wants to be held, I'm going to hold her and not let go. I love looking at her. I could stare at my baby girl all day long. Just knowing she is all mine and we created her is such a wonderful feeling. I love her so much and am so glad that God chose us to be her parents. You truly are an amazing young girl. We love you so much sweet heart. Just slow down on all that growing for me ;)
