Too Big, Too Fast

It didn't take long after Emma was born for me to understand what I kept hearing from every parent I knew: "It goes by way too fast."

Now, with two kids, I feel like time is seriously flying by. My girls are growing way too fast before my eyes. I'm afraid to blink.

Kendall is somehow already 9 months old, is crawling like crazy, and standing on her own for long periods of time. She has two teeth, with more are on the way.

Emma is in a big girl bed and will be turning 3 in just a few weeks. I don't think I'm ready for that.

I'm trying so hard to soak in the moments, but I admit they often get clouded by lack of sleep and toddler tantrums. Still, when they both look up with me with those blue eyes, I am overwhelmed with gratitude that I get to spend my days with these two little girls.

And they just keep getting cuter too! I can't get over how much they look alike! When I first saw the first picture I thought it was Emma when she was younger!

I remember when you were pregnant with Kendall! Time does fly:)

I know, with the second I agree this first year is zooming by!

Look at all these changes! I can't believe I'm seeing Kendall standing there already, it makes me sad! Emma & Julian had already met at this age I think. No more changes until we meet, OK girls?!

(I tried to comment yesterday but my phone doesn't like Blogger blogs for some reason and won't allow me to do it!)

It IS going by fast...but it's been so fun along the way. They are both so cute and so sweet Lis, you are doing a great job (sleep or no sleep)! Keep it up!
Love you all!!!
