Watching my girls grow up

One thing is for certain. Time does not stop for anyone. Its amazing how time has flown by. It seems like yesterday I was holding my oldest daughter in my arms after having over 12 hours of very hard labor because I had to be induced due to my blood pressure skyrocketing at the end of my pregnancy. Now she is a beautifull 11 year old girl that just amazes me everyday. It was like yesterday that Katie was born. She was just such a silly girl. She gave us a bit of a run for our money when she was little with having seizure problems. Luckily for her it worked itself out and now she is just Katie Reed. A feisty girl who I think someday will be a lawyer. I will award the man that marries her someday. Hannah, she is my quiet one. We tease and tell her that she's going to be a spy. Its kind of creepy actually. Hannah can sneak up on anyone like a cat and they don't know she's there until you almost fall over her. I can't believe she is going to be 6 years old here in June. She is still by Hannie Lou Who. Then there is Maggie. I can't believe that three years have almost gone by. She is still mommy's baby. Its like those first few grueling years never happened.

One thing is for certain when you have children you really see time fly by. Its almost like when you are a child life can't go quick enough so you can be a grown up. But when you grow up you just want it to stop so that you can enjoy every moment.

Totally agree, they seem to just grow up so fast. I just posted some thoughts from my journal over at my blog on this exact subject. Your girls are beautiful, enjoy them and hold them close. The only consession I think we have is that we will get to be grandparents one day. That is a bit comforting for me anyway. ((HUGS))

So very true. When did it change? I think around age 25 for me. Then warp speed when B was born.
