Babies....sigh....they grow way too fast!

My babies

My auntie's baby's baby... ;)

My friend's baby

My new baby niece

As my things-to-do list decoratively says, "enjoy the little things in life!" I realize it's because they "grow" way too fast.

Time goes by so slowly for some things and yet too quickly in those instances we want to hold on to most. I see my baby niece and I recall the days when I used to nuzzle my babies' necks and smell their little breathes. I scramble through my mind in hopes of stumbling upon one vivid image to hold on to forever because I remember having told myself "you will never forget this moment" and now it seems that I have. It saddens me to think that I didn't enjoy them as much as I could have but then I realize that the reason I get frustrated with the loss of memories is because we had so many; I just hate that I can't pin point one exact moment. The days I spent with my girls at home (I was a stay-at-home mommy for 4, almost 5 years) are tresured stories that I hope to one day dream of again.

My dear auntie quoted someone not too long ago and said "My biggest discovery is that my children bring the greatest joy to me. Nothing comes close." (well my hubby of course but he's a big baby so it fits:)

For a sneak peak of little Abby's (my new baby niece) first professional photshoot go to:
(not sure why its not linking so cut and paste will have to do for this one....sorry.)

Not sure why you don't write for a living. It's your talent, your gift, you should follow it.
p.s. start with a small book-baby steps
