Since the day I told people I was pregnant I heard the phrase “Don’t blink! They grow so quickly!” over and over again. Everytime someone says that to me I die inside a little more.
In all honesty the past year has gone even faster than I could have imagined. I prepared myself for the days to fly by, and they certainly held up to that expectation. Now that my daughter is over a year old I get all of my old Timehop pictures from last year showing me just how little she was at this time one year ago.
Sometimes I desperately want to go back to those days and squeeze that tiny little baby again. You will hear me say to people, “I wish she would just stop growing”. You may have seen Instagram captions that say, “When did she get so big?” with the crying face emoji.
But in reality I don’t want her to stop growing. I have never enjoyed anything more than watching my daughter grow before my eyes. Watching all that she can do so quickly has been such a fun journey to experience. From feeding herself, to walking, to interacting with other children I am constantly amazed by this little human and how she is slowly becoming more and more a part of the world around her.
You may still hear me say, “stop growing”. Just know that I don’t mean one bit of it.
