She's growing and I've been too blind to see it

I still think of Megan as my baby because she just learned to walk just about 2 months ago and she still barely talks so she just seems like a baby stil as well as she's just so much tinier than her sister was at this age. wub.gif Tonight I was standing in front of her mirrored closet doors, rocking her back and forth and in that very moment I just started to cry. I saw myself holding her, singing to her, rocking her and she wasn't this little baby I thought she was, she was a toddler. She looked so big in my arms. I thought to myself, how did this happen? When did this happen? sad.gif

I guess I've been trying so hard to hold on to her baby stage, since she IS my last baby, that I didn't even notice that she's growing bigger every day. bawling.gif bawling.gif Every second I feel like I'm grasping for memories of their babyhood and I'm scared some day I'm not going to have those memories anymore. Each day that goes by my memory gets less and less. How am I going to remember this stage when I'm 50, 60, 70? sad.gif sleep.gif

kit_kats_mom replied: oh honey, I feel that way all the time. Why do you think I'm so meticulous about taking loads of video and pictures all the time? On top of that, wonder why I am still sleeping with Lauren and still nursing her? Cause I don't want her baby hood to be over...I'm grasping at straws and desperately holding on to the last little "babyish" things that I have. Knowing she will be my last makes it even more difficult.

All I can do is commiserate with you.

coasterqueen replied: Yeah, I'm trying to take more video and pics, but never have the time, which is a terrible excuse or the camera is never there. blush.gif I really need to do this more and fast. bawling.gif

CantWait replied: hug.gif hug.gif As moms we're with you. Lots of hugs.

DansMom replied: hug.gif I understand too!

My2Beauties replied: I feel the same way. I could kick myself in the rear for not taking enough videos. I am really bad about taking pics but you can never have enough videos in my book and I'm terrible about that. sad.gif hug.gif hug.gif I'm right there with you! bawling.gif

redchief replied: I agree with Lisa. The memories combine with the challenges and triumphs of everyday life, painting a colorful, intricate, interesting tapestry of a child growing into an adult. I sympathize with your feelings though. There's still this little tiny bit of sadness as the innocence wanes and they become more and more independent. hug.gif

Kaitlin'smom replied: hug.gif I know what you mean. Kait is growing way to fast for me. I do have tons a pics, but hardly any video. I think I snap pics at least once a month. I also am terrible about her baby....I sooo need to go back on here and get the stuff that shoudl be in her book. Thank goodness for PC for being like a baby book for me.

Maddie&EthansMom replied: I am way too familiar with that feeling lately. bawling.gif hug.gif
