Even before the lovely Melissa over at Dear Baby featured one of my little outfits I’d been a reader of her blog. I just love the way she writes. She has a refreshing positivity that is simply addictive.
The other day she wrote this:
“I feel like watching this little girl grow up is both awe-inspiring and heartbreaking. We as parents put so much hope and faith and energy into raising up our children, helping them grow… and yet, to watch it in real time… all I want to do is beg her stay just like she is in this moment.”
And I know I’m just an aunty but I could totally relate. AND to make matters worse a few days later I went over to my sister’s house to find Lanna wearing the dress that I made for Tira last year for forth of July. NOOOOO! She can’t be growing so fast, and yes I love talking to her and the new play she’s capable of but come on, seriously, it’s way too fast.
I wish I could keep them forever entertained by dum dum lollipops and the prospects of seeing uncle mowing the lawn below.

What a wonderful post. I can relate, as my little girl is about to turn 3 and my baby boy is going on 8 months. Every day I wonder where the time has gone. I try to soak in each and every sweet memory as I watch my two babies grow and change. It’s definitely bittersweet: I’m so proud of them, yet a little sad as they leave each stage behind.
What a lovely photo. So atmospheric and timeless.
I agree 100%!!!
