Last Baby Blues

6 months.

Crawling. Yes, crawling.

It has been hard to really get myself to believe that she is our last baby.

It is funny how you come to a decision, it feels so right, and then your heart sometimes doesn't want to let you believe it. Sometimes it is easier to second guess your decisions and choices.

Especially in this case.

Because this one has been so gosh darn sweet, and such a joy to us.
I think she knew how much I needed her to stay small.
She is our most petite baby.

I love every inch of her.

I have her memorized.

Today, I took down the cradle in my bedroom.
She officially shares a room with her big sister.
The first of many long nights chattering with her and telling secrets and talking about boyfriends and school I am sure.

I took the baby swing down, it is in the car waiting to be returned to those from whence the borrowing of it came.

All of the four ounce bottles are packed away in the garage, awaiting the yearly yard sale.

The tiny little clothes except for a few put away for her and sissy are officially given away,
with another batch to go out tomorrow.

Oh how I love this tiny girl. She has brought us so much joy.

Kisses Millz. So thankful for you.

You were worth every second of the wait, every heartache.
I have said it before, and I will say it again, I would do it all over in a heartbeat.

Just stop growing so fast okay?

Oh wait - that comment was from me (Holly) on Toby's computer.

Toby said...

Crawling!??? Holy cow. She really is gorgeous!

Katie said...

She is so beautiful! We definitely need to get her and Boston together!

I've been struggling with that feeling as well. We really don't see having another baby after this one and the thought that this will be my only pregnancy (and our only adoption) hurts to no end. I would like to cry and protest but it's hard to feel peace and aching in a decision and then ignore it.

I'm just so blessed I've gotten to do both in my life. I plan on gobbling this little one up just as you have. Any suggestions?

She is so gosh darn gorgeous! Can't believe how fast time really does go. I makes me shed a tear...

Worth the wait, that is what I keep telling myself too!

Bless that beautiful little face...

Amy said...

Awww, what a cutie.

Sad, though. They do grow up way too fast!

6 months already?! She is a cutie!!

Yes I agree I want them to stop growing. I have been lucky because gracie has been my little petite. In fact until recently she has started to look like she is growing. At 12 months she could still wear 6 month clothes. I have loved every minute of her being so small and it seeming like she is growing slow since she is my last one. But now I look at her and think.."WOW she is getting too big" I want to freeze the time =)
