Kids grow too fast!

Last night my husband and I were compiling pictures of our kids and making a slide show/video with music. I really can't believe how much each of our kids has grown! It's a tender thing for me to reflect back, and remember the day I became a mom and how special it was for me. I think I was naive at the time thinking that because I always babysat for my siblings that it would be a piece of cake; although, it did help to be around babies. My mother always taught me how to care for them and I am thankful for those learning opportunities. I have been a mother for almost 6 years today to our four kids and I know how much work it is to be a mother, but 4 is nothing compared to my mom's 14 kids, she is an amazing mother!

I carried each of my babies through pregnancy for all those months through morning sickness, backaches and headaches and that was only the beginning, the labor was so intense that I barely coped with the pain. UNTIL...my child was born! When that moment happened I forgot about my pain, and the baby became the center of my world! Hearing that first cry and I started crying too! To feel a love like that is priceless and as soon as I had the first embrace of my baby, I feel such a peace and comfort and sense of accomplishment in knowing that I did it and that my touch, voice and nourishment soothe my baby’s cry. Each time I have had this experience I am even more grateful!

Months and years later they went through the stages of development and growth and I have captured these memories in my heart! Today, almost 6 years later I am even busier than I have ever been in my life and the things I once took for granted have become more precious to me. Seeing them bond with my husband, one another and myself is such a wonderful feeling. My husband and I have learned and grown from our experiences throughout our journey as parents though we may not be the perfect parents, what we have been given is the utmost rewarding blessing!

  2. I agree. Everyone says that they'll grow up too fast. I never understood what they meant until I had children of my own.

    Thanks for stopping by!
