Everything's Changing


We went from reading books to Little One...


 ...to Little One "reading" stories to us.


She went from having a really sweet nursery and being in a crib...

 ...to being in a big girl bed!

 She's growing up so quickly and I have to say that I miss my little baby. I'm enjoying the toddler years, but cannot believe how fast the years are flying by! 2 years old already. That's crazy!

She mimics everything we do and she asserts her independence. She demonstrates her likes and dislikes, and she  has no qualms about letting us know what she thinks. She is into everything...a walking disaster waiting to happen...always making me clean the house very inquisitive. She says the funniest things like, "BABY!!!" while pointing at her grandmother's tummy. *sigh*

The time between babyhood and school age years is just so precious and short. I just want to savour every moment. We can never get this time with our kids back. Remind me I said this the next time I complain about how exhausted I am! ;)

I feel your pain. Mine will be FOUR years old this month. Time goes by so fast. She has pretend friends and plays that thye are going to school. She tries my patience every day by pushing the boundaries and insisting on having her way, every time, all the time. But the things she says are so funny, the stuff they come up with at this age is hilarious.

Yes, C, you're right; we need to enjoy every minute, we can't ever get them back.

They are tough years, but they are precious years. I have days where I feel like a complete & total failure as a mother (I am a perfectionist, I just can't help myself) but I wouldn't trade motherhood for ANYTHING in the world. I am doing my best to treasure every moment as best I can.
