I wouldn't change anything about what we did as parents or how we handled things; but I know that the next time around, I will slow down. I will savor each second of the squinted eye, squishy baby, wrinkled hands and feet. Everyone said it goes by so fast, and it does; it really really does.
Brooke is now 14 months old.
She eats A LOT.
Out to lunch.
She is in a 2T.
She has a size 6.5 shoe.
She talks more than I am ready for and remembers things so well!! She is no longer a baby.
She is literally my heart walking around outside of my body. I am so in love with her more and more each day; it is so amazing to watch her grow and learn.
While she continues to grow, I do too. I learn not to be so hard on myself; that we are doing a wonderful job as parents and we will have our tough times, but that little girl is such a breath of fresh air in this crazy world.
To look into the face of something we created is such a magical thing.
