my sweet baby

my sweet babymy sweet babymy sweet babymy sweet babyShe turns one in a few days. It’s so strange. She’s my baby and sometimes I feel so bad that time has escaped so quickly and I feel like I missed out on so much. Like maybe I should have videotaped her more or taken more pictures, anything that would make this time just freeze for a bit longer.

We’re finally moving on some baby things along like the baby tub, or the infant rocking seat because those are things we just don’t need anymore. I have been in this baby stage for the past seven years, it is hard to let go, though for us it really is time. Soul was walking at 9 months and Glow is barely standing at almost 1 year. I am just fine with that. She’s a healthy little girl and I know the walking will come. I am just in no hurry.

She happily crawls about the house, holds on to edges and walks that way, I see drool spots all over the wood floors, her favorite toys are the wooden blocks and this girl is just always happy. When she isn’t, it usually means she’s sleepy, so just put her down in her bed and she rolls onto her tummy immediately and goes to sleep. I love the way her toes curl when she stands up, she gets growly when food is placed in front of her and we call her “Glanimal”, her hair is always in her face, and she has hair has a big knot at the back that I don’t have the heart to cut.

This little one makes my heart swell, well they all do, but of course the older ones have a little more sass to them now. Heck! True even yells at me sometimes. You can imagine that didn’t turn out so well for her and she was best friend’s with a wall for a bit. I know in due time this baby will have that same sass and we will both fight. I hope that time doesn’t come too soon and I will just spend now inhaling her baby-ness, trying to take as many pictures and video of her as I can, and just cuddling her as much as possible. Though no matter how much I do now, I will still be wishing I did more later. I just know this will all go by way too fast.

on glow: stripe romper, c/o little esop. the stripey and the quality make it one of my faves!

    Wow… Feeling just the same emotions here… I have a one week old (our third babe and last) and am wanting time to stand still and just feeling like I want to absorb his littleness into every cell and also watching the older ones, yes so big and a little sassy, and hoping I am capturing it all in my mind’s eye. Thanks for putting it into words!

    She is just precious! I totally agree, my daughter turned one in late July, and while she’s already giving me a little sass, smh, there’s still a little baby in her. Like when she passed gas in the bath tub to make a noise and thought it was HILARIOUS – she captured my heart!

    Your photos are so sweet! This is such a happy place for me– it reminds me of when mine were this little. I didn’t even do as much as you are doing. You will look back and think you were Wonder Woman!!! 😉 And you’re right– everyone grows at their own pace. She’s such a cutie-pie!

    i feel that way about isaiah… except i have another one coming in a few weeks! haha! you want mine? 🙂

    glow is super super sweet. and so chill. (except when she’s hungry!) i miss her and you and all the girls! let’s play soon, yeah?!?!?!

  • I feel ya. It feels like the best stage yet and then it just gets better and better… and then they yell, and like you said, become friends with the wall… and that’s all great in it’s own way… but not in the same way. I have an almost two year old and a almost 2 month old and I can’t wait for the younger one to grow up… and then stop growing right around that 18 month mark where they are just fun fun fun. There’s nothing like being a mom. So fulfilliing. You could always have another… haha.

  • Hi! I really like the way you write and your words about your baby is beutiful. Thanks for sharing! Hugs from Sweden

    i’m so glad that i’m not the only one that still says “vidoe taped” even though don’t think i’ve actually taped to a video since 1998, haha : ) cute baby!

  • That went by so fast that she is nearly a year old. I love these shots and that is cute that her hair is always in her face like that. Cute little nickname for her too of “Glanimal” haha.

  • Lexie says:

    Ah my little buddy is 5 months old and I have random moments where I feel so guilty and always say “I need to videotape him more, I need to take more pictures!” Glad I’m not the only one. You’re doing a marvelous job and taking plenty of pictures 🙂
