Things I Already Miss About my Baby.

I posted the following update to facebook over the weekend, “You know what doesn’t stay little long enough? Babies.”

I was not alone in my feelings either.

As I see photos of tiny new babies posted everyday (or so it seems) I’m left staring at my own wonderful baby knowing that I did all I could to enjoy that itty bitty phase and yet it just went so fast.

As Vivi is on the brink of crawling, waving and cutting real teeth, I’ve found myself getting a little misty about all the little things she’s already outgrown.

I know I’m not remembering them all, so if you could help me remember the ones I missed, I sure would appreciate it.

Just in compiling these few photos I’ve realized a dozen more. There may or may not have been a tear shed. I also have an overwhelming desire to sneak into her room right now to pick her up and rock her. It’s like that ‘Love You Forever’ book but way less creepy at the end.

I guess the only way to really fix this nostalgic ache is to do this all again someday.
