baby hairs.

I love them.
I looked at Bennett from across the room and those little baby hairs were the first thing I noticed.

I mean, they kind of look silly, just sticking up in the back like he stuck his finger in an electrical socket. But they mean that he's still a baby.

One day they will be gone and I will miss them so much.

I know that we all say it, all the of time- but time really does go by so fast. I wish that I could stop it, just for a little while. To really savor and really breath in all of these tender moments. The ones where he just looks at me like I'm the best, most important person in the world. I'd like to think that I don't take those for granted. But life is busy and of course I get caught up in it.

I've been thinking about "me" time. Everyone tells me that it's SO important to have time to myself. And they're right, I do need that time. But sometimes I feel guilty because that is time I can't get back with my baby. He won't be a baby for long. Every time I turn around he's bigger and doing something new. As much as I love time for myself and with my friends- I really don't want to miss a thing with Bennett. I always want to be there. Am I obsessed? Yes, probably.

Recently, he started reaching out for me. When he's upset or when he just wants a hug. He reaches for me and it just melts my heart. I hope he will always know, throughout his life, that he can reach for me and I will be there for him.

Even when those baby hairs are gone.

How beautiful! You have a mothers heart! :)

Because you love him so much. Like I loved Aidyn.. He'll still reach for you. You'll still be the most important person in his life!

Aidyn has decided he's only going to grow until kindergarten. No bigger. Why?

A)He doesnt want to lose any teeth.
B) He wants to stay mommys baby forever!

I promise you wont EVER lose him :) They just get bigger and sweeter! You find NEW Things to obsess over!

i totally know what you mean. parker is starting to get the cutest little layer of peach fuzz on his head & i just love it.

and as far as always being there, i had the exact same thought the other day, for real. i even got the aerosmith "i don't wanna miss a thing" song in my head when i was thinking about it, but then i thought through the rest of the song & i was like, "woah, this is a little more romantic than my love for p-ray." haha.

Oh SO sweet! I know they grow so fast. I will be sending my little man child off to nursery in 6 weeks and I cant believe he is the same itty bitty I brought home from the hospital!
Take every moment, every sight, smell, sound, every smile in. They change so fast!
Your pictures always look so amazing, how do get such great lighting?????

Oh I love this! I just had my very first night away from Josselyn and as much needed as it was, I was so afraid that in my absence, daddy and daughter would do just fine and realize they wouldn't need me. I cried and cried... but then night came and I had the best night of sleep in a LONG time ;)

But I came home and felt like I missed so much of her life already. I was gone for one night and I came back to a bigger girl, it seemed.

They grow so fast and I want it all! I want every second, every smell, every image, everything... yes, obsessed maybe we are.
