Where did my little newborn go? On the left Addie is almost 1 month old, and on the right she is almost 8 months old. Eight months… how can it be that 8 months will have passed come tomorrow? If someone could really do me a favour and slow down time I would truly appreciate it.
Does it get harder with each child?
Does time truly pass more quickly?
I’ve mentioned a few times that I am struggling with Addie being closer to a year old, than a newborn. I think tonight it set in even more. Especially upon putting these photos side by side. I still see her as the little thing on the left. Just under 8lbs of pure cuteness. Now, she is just pushing 17lbs, after months of being at 14lbs she is starting to chunk up.
People often comment on how she is tiny, but big. This is in reference normally to how long she is. She does have long legs. There is also something very dainty about her features. It’s why we call her our little pixie. Maybe it’s her little pointy ears, and her tinny button nose.
I’m not ready for this. I’m not ready for her to be a year old. In some ways my heart is breaking that her first year is so close to being behind us. Please I beg of you, slow down time so that I can soak up every moment. I feel like I am missing it all.
How can I be missing it though, when her growing up is happening right before my eyes?
Oh sweet girl, you have changed so much.
Anyone else struggle with their little ones getting closer to being a year old?
