They grow up fast, eh?

When you're pregnant, people tell you to cherish the time you have. I thought, "Sure, but I cannot wait to hold my baby!". And before I knew it I was a mom. Then they tell you to cherish every moment because they grow up fast. I thought, "Yeah, they probably do, but time won't past that fast".

A friend of mine had her baby girl 5 weeks early; 4 lbs! Today is her shower so I went through Pumpkin's old clothes to give to her. We were very unprepared for a preemie ourselves, so I know how stressful it can be to have to buy more clothes (which they will more than likely grow out of in a few weeks) and diapers. As I was going through everything I just could not believe that Pumpkin once fit into those tiny doll clothes. She is still small for her age, still wearing 3-6 clothing (although soon she'll have to upgrade!). But it made me realize how fast 8 months has FLOWN by. We are four months away from her 1 year birthday!

If I could give any new Mom one piece of advice it would be to cherish every moment, good or bad, because they fly by. Oh, and to sleep when you can!



  1. This post is so true! I just hosted Clint's first birthday party (check out my blog!). I can't believe it's been a year! I hope the next time we go through getting pregnant and having a little one I can remember to cherish every moment even more than I did with my first!

  2. Yes mam, they sure do grow fast. They aren't kidding when they say that. Believe me, Hunter's 5th bday was today :( Not only is that the scariest most depressing thing, it also reminds me that Avery will be 1 in 3 months!!!! I think that the time flies so fast because you don't get enough sleep haha! As far as the clothes thing goes, Avery is in 18-24 months in dresses & shirts... NOW THAT IS DEPRESSING! These little girls aren't so little anymore :(
