When did that happen?

I had a moment today. One that I'm sure every mother has at some point. I looked at Grace and realized that she is truly a toddler now. She's no longer my "baby." I don't know why it hit me so suddenly and I know that my pregnancy hormones are raging so it made me more upset than I expected it to. Luckily she still loves to cuddle with me, but she is definitely becoming her own little person. She's got such a big personality and I can see glimpses of what she will be like as a "big girl." I don't know why I wasn't prepared for this realization. I have been calling her a toddler for months, but now that we're preparing for Connor, I miss her being so tiny!

My girl at 6 days old:


And now at 16 months old:


 She was telling me all about the video camera I think. Here she is mid-"sentence."


Please tell me I'm not the only one who has had this moment. Also please reassure me that I'm not the only one who got emotional over it. I love my toddler, I really do. She's so much fun. But I can't help missing her newborn days.

  1. Uh almost every other day I look at my son and remember him as a tiny one.

    I love that he is growing up and getting bigger and learning things but I so miss those sweet baby days too.

    I get the feeling we are going to do this all the rest of our lives!

  2. You are not alone! I have done this with both my kids and I am amazed daily at how big they are getting!
