A moment in time

Do you ever wish you could freeze time? Something is so good, you just wish it wouldn't change, ever? I can think of a few times in my life where I felt this way, but they are few and far between.

Usually I'm the type of person that is constantly looking toward the next thing, and not relishing the present. When I was pregnant I couldn't wait until the day I delivered. Then I couldn't wait until The Chubs left Children's hospital and could finally come home with us. Then I couldn't wait until she was sleeping more than 3 hour stretches, and so on and so forth. But right now, I just want to freeze time. In two weeks she'll be 6 months old. How did that happen? It feels like just yesterday she was a tiny little peanut hooked up to oxygen sleeping swaddled in her swing. Now she's a little person; giggling, smiling, cooing and babbling, finding fascination with everything life has to offer. How can my baby be 6 months old? Half a year of her life has passed and it feels like it's gone so fast. It won't be long until she's crawling, walking and then going off to Kindergarten. I'm so excited for all the stages to come, for different reasons, but I'm not quite ready to let go of my baby. She's my miracle and today, I'm enjoying who she is now. I have a lifetime to look forward to who she will be.


  1. Lady, your baby is ridiculously cute. and I know EXACTLY what u mean. I feel like I was very milestone oriented with my first premie, but with my second, I just want her to stay my little baby...she is only 3 months old but I am already missing my teeny tiny peanut.

  2. I know exactly how you feel. It must be the approaching 6 months old milestone that's making me feel sappy too. The other day, he only wanted to be held all day long and I kept thinking that it won't be long before he's a busy toddler that doesn't take the time to snuggle with Mommy anymore. And then I started thinking about him going away to college, and then I started thinking about him getting married. Yes, I got that carried away. You hear it a million times but I don't think you really get it until you experience it for yourself: it goes by SO incredibly fast.

    PS- Thanks for making me all teary.

  3. It sure does go fast! That's MY baby holding that chubmuffin!
