My children just amaze me. I was rocking Riley to sleep last night (for the second time I might add) and I was surprised to see how big my little girl is getting. It amazes me that they were tiny little babies that fit inside my belly and now they barely fit in my lap. The whole concept of how babies start out as a bunch of cells and turn into the most beautiful people is just amazing. I often wonder if my mom looks at me and thinks “Wow I carried her in my belly, and now look at her”. It is still crazy to think that I had two babies inside me at once and how I was able to deliver them 2 months early, yet they were perfect in every way, just a little small.
I’m trying hard not to take moments for granted. With Riley’s new bout of teething, she is waking up several times through the night and it is easy to get worn out and frustrated but as I was rocking her last night, I was thinking about how I will look back a few years from now and miss those moments. I’m sad knowing that my girls are growing so big that they take up my entire lap instead of just my arms. It is funny when both girls want to be in my lap because it is so hard to juggle both of them. I don’t want these moments to fly by so I am trying to keep a good attitude and to cherish those moments that I can rock my babies to sleep and have them feel secure in my arms.
