Wordless Wednesday: Kissing My Baby Goodbye

My Li'l Diva's third birth is sneaking up closer and closer. Just over two months away. She's been growing, both physically and mentally, like a weed. She's almost completely potty trained, know's all of her letters and can count to 13. Her logic is a little out there but well developed for her age. And her imagination is just amazing. She's swiftly going from a toddler to a preschooler. I feel like I'm kissing my baby goodbye to welcome a little girl. And while I'm so proud of who she's growing into there's a part of me that's just not ready for that yet. Time is proving to be too fleeting. I want to hold onto my baby girl just a little bit longer.

"Cooking and cleaning can wait till tomorrow
For babies grow up we've learned to our sorrow.
So settle down cobwebs, dust go to sleep,
I'm rocking my baby and babies don't keep"

  1. They grow up so fast!!!! Love the poem at the end! You have beautiful children and a beautiful family!

    1. Thank you! They do grow up fast. And I love that poem too :) I found it while I was pregnant with my son; it's just SO true!

  2. That makes me sad! I'm not ready for my baby to grow up!

    1. You're going to be so shocked by how much she has changed. She's SUCH a big girl now!

  4. Omg, they do grow up fast! My baby is 4 and I am just glad he is not 13... (my husband's daughter, my step daughter will actually be going into HIGHSCHOOL next year, that is a scary thought for you!)

    Love the pictures too, she is such a doll.

    1. I know what you mean. My niece will be 14 this year and starting high school in the fall. It's crazy because I remember her being born and babysitting for her as a she's taller than I am and passing her clothes down to me! lol
