If I could turn back time...

I packed up more of Amelia's newborn things. She can still wear some of her dresses but the pants and onesies are too small. Where did my little 5 lb baby go??? We put her on the scale with Alex and it looks like she is up to 12 lbs!! My girl is growing and smiling and making each and every day PURE JOY! I do find myself looking at pictures of her in the hospital or when we first brought her home and those days seem forever ago. I'm now understanding all of those posts of yours that I read...they all said, "can someone tell me how to turn back time!?" There is a huge part of me that wants her to still be that tiny baby and another part of me that wants to hear her talk, see her walk, etc, etc, etc. Craziness! (LOL)



We're having a low-key New Years Eve. We're going to dinner at my sister's home and spending time with family. One of my favorite things!

I pray you all have a happy and safe New Year's Eve!

Love to all,

I know what you mean about putting the newborn clothes away. I was so sad! I actually stretched out their life time for awhile before putting them away. So many of his newborn outfits and onesies where so cute, it was hard!

You also have a Happy and safe New Year! Look forward to getting to know you better in 2010!

Now you know how we all feel....so bittersweet and a conflict of emotions!!! Amelia is just ADORABLE! Happy New Year, friend! 2010 is going to be the best one yet!!! (And it holds a playdate for our baby girls and their mommas!!)

I really used to roll my eyes at all of the "it'll go by so fast" and "cherish every moment" comments because, really? EVERYONE tells you that. But ultimately, they are all so right. Baby time simply flies. Soak it up!
