In the Blink of an Eye
My daughter, Sarah, posted these pictures on Facebook. Pictures that I haven't glanced at in years and I got all choked up because time goes by in the blink of an eye.
I think Matthew tooted in this picture - look at Sarah's face.
Matthew feels better and Sarah backed off. Look at those chubby cheeks. I miss those chubby, pinchable, cheeks and that adorable baby boy who cuddled up to me every day. And that precious baby girl! Sarah had (and still has) the most beautiful head of hair and the funniest expressions. She loves her baby brother and has always been the best big sister ever.
Easter 1998. Matthew was 16 months old. Sarah was 4 y/o. Oh how time flies!!
If you have a baby (or babies) - savor every minute, even the exhausting moments, because there will come a day when you are looking back on the memories and wish you had that sweet baby cuddling up to you and saying "I love you Mommy" once again. Sure, they grow up and still say it, and yes, I still get the daily hugs, but there is just something so special about a baby's innocence that melts my heart.
Now I have this adorable baby to virtually hug every day ...
I can't believe it, but that's my granddaughter! My daughter, Kimberly, is so very blessed to have such an angel.
And she's all dressed up for Easter!! I wish there was a way to slow Father Time. My maternal instincts are setting off sparks right now.
