One day you notice...


that your baby isn't a baby anymore. Yesterday I tried Emersons hair in little piggy tails and she looked so cute and so grown up. It seems like yesterday she was a newborn baby and I held her and loved her and she slept all day. And now she is a little girl trying to do everything that her big sister does. She is starting to say random words. I need to take her bottle away and I think she will be just fine, but I am not sure that I will. Not having a bottle just means that she is definately not a baby. It makes me so sad. I have loved being home with her. I feel like I haven't missed a thing and I am so grateful to be able to spend every day with her.
I worked everyday when Aniston was Emersons age and I know now that there were little things that I missed. But life is funny and things work out the way that they are suppose to. We didn't have Emerson for 4 years after, so there was 4 years that it was just the 3 of us. I am so lucky to have been able to have that time with Aniston and now I am getting to spend time with Emerson, just her and I. They are both such sweet and sassy girls. They look a lot alike, yet are so different. It is so sad that one day you wake up and notice that they aren't little anymore.

That is so sad how fast they grow up. I'm very glad that I am able to stay home with my kids too. It really makes a difference to be with them all the time. It's the little moments that are the sweetest.

Emerson and Aniston are SOOO Cute! I can't believe how fast they are growing. I agree the little ones grow to fast! I wish I could hit pause some days. But it's fun to see them grow and learn too! You never know what they will think of next. We just have to cherish every minute!
