Feeling a bit Sentimental

Today I am feeling somewhat nostalgic. Maybe it is the heady combination of pregnancy hormones and copious ammounts of sugar, but I woke up this morning with the strong desire to look at photos and possibly do some serious weeping.

Actually, in truth, I realized with some surprise that I hadn't blogged since April 2 (!) and was desperate for something to blog about. I must confess to not having taken any new photos since my last blog post. Lazy, lazy, me. So, instead of taking new photos (please don't flog me), I went through my old photos and looked at pictures of Bunny from birth to now. Oh, how she has grown. I can't believe that she went from this:

To this:

Can you believe how much she has grown? It seems like just yesterday that I was 300 months pregnant and waiting for her to appear. Now, while waiting for the next babe to arrive, it becomes abundantly clear to me that kids. grow. up. fast. People say this to you when you are pregnant for the first time and you think that you understand this, but really, you don't actually get it until your child starts to grow. I look back on this now and think where did the last 5 years go?? When did she get so big?? Where the heck was I??
I can't wait to see what the next 5, 10, 15, 20 years are like for her. I hope that they are all as wonderful as these first 5 have been.
Ok, for those of you who have made it to this point without throwing up your hands in disgust at the lack of knitting content, I promise to take more pictures of the knitting in progress and have something wonderful and knitting related to post shortly.

Weepy moments are allowed for anyone watching a child grow up into something so precious you want to never let it go....until it becomes a teenager and you want to strangle IT! Glad to hear you're doing well, missed you on Tuesday. Hope everything is up!!

What a sweetie...My baby turns 16 next week (My other babies are 14 and 13! Hard to believe! I don't feel that old). At each stage of their growth, I've thought "Oh this is my favorite time with them" and the same is true now. I am truly enjoying the glimpses I'm getting at the adults they'll be. We're having fun together. I'm loving their teenage years, most days, but of course I have all boys, a houseful of teenage girls might be a different story.

Hey Trish, sorry this is the only way I can get a hold of you but that lady that I know can totally do Rolfing on you while you are pregnant. I trust this woman so much, so hopefully I'll see you Tuesday and I'll give you her number.
