press pause, please!

Do you ever wish you could just hit the pause button on your child? So maybe, just maybe, they would stop growing up for like 2.3 seconds. This girl will not slow down! One minute she’s rolling over like a crazy girl, next minute she’s sitting up on her own {not to mention, she’s started swimming to her toys a little}.

Don’t get me wrong, one of my absolute favorite things is watching Harper learn and grow. It’s so fun to see her figure out she can do something and then do it over and over and over. But I can hardly enjoy her new findings before she’s on to something else.

Seriously, though…can my next one come with a pause button, please?

Not. Joking.

PLEASE!!!

You are preaching to the choir! Grace is going to be 1 in less than 3 months, I want to barf thinking about it! Maybe if we pray really hard for them to come with a pause button Heavenly Father will work it in there...and maybe while we are at it we can ask for instruction manuals?

PAUSE PAUSE PAUSE PAUSE. It only goes faster. But I hear you and I love that you feel that way. So many mothers are wishing away their baby days. Hold on to it! You're such a good mom. I love this picture of her.

I love this picture of her. And you are so right, the time goes by so fast. In fact, before you know it, you are looking back and seeing your beautiful daughter being the best mom in the world. So proud of the job you are doing. Take lots of pictures and write lots of things down that she does. You will forget before you know it.

I completely feel you on this. I didn't experience it so much with Cal because he was my first and every milestone was so exciting... But with Croz it just breaks my heart how fast it all goes because I have 2 kids now and they both grow so fast! It's so fun to watch them though. Harper is so cute-- she looks a lot like you I think!
