What I Know For Sure…

I don’t know how it’s possible that it’s been almost two years since I held this tiny baby in my arms for the first time.

The exhaustion and worry of the newborn months has faded.

Her first moves up and out of infancy are memories.

I don’t quite remember the second she moved past discovering her toes and on to discovering the world.

Or when that baby face gave way to a little girl’s features.

But there’s one thing I know for sure. No matter how big this little monster gets…

She’ll always be my baby girl.

    I know how this feels! Mine turns three in one week. I can hardly remember her as a baby. She’s her own unique person now.

    Sigh.

      But then again, it’s pretty great to watch, isn’t it?

    Yes, she will. And you’ll always be her Mama. No matter how big and how much she discovers, YOU will be the one she discovers it with. Aren’t we the luckiest people in the world? That we get to share the world with these kids?!

    AWWW!
    The year’s do fly don’t they? She’s adorable, by the way!
    Just yesterday it seems I was a nervous Mama of a little girl like yours. She’s about to turn 7! And her little brother? Almost 3!
    They’ll always be my babies, just like you said :-)
    Stopped by from MamaKat’s…

      Thanks for stopping by! I’m pretty sure the next time I blink, I’ll realize she’s 16…

    Great job with this prompt! She’s a cutie and looks like so much fun. She’s about the same age as Our Little Princess who turned two on February 20th.

      Well happy belated birthday to your princess! She is a lot of fun – when she’s not being a lot of work.
