I Love Bloom

So funny, after I wrote my post last night, I was reflecting on it while trying to fall asleep.  And then I got up this morning and read this on Bloom.
She totally nailed how I was feeling!
I feel like I'm able to just enjoy Jane more than I did the other 2, because I know how quickly it's going to fly by.
Sometimes I feel like I'm going to blink, open my eyes, and my girls will be driving and dating and it scares the living daylights out of me {such an old person phrase, by the way}.
With Lo, I was constantly thinking about where she was headed and the next stage, almost pushing her to grow up.  With Mya {a little different} I enjoyed where she was at more, but SHE was always in a hurry to move on to the next stage - she just didn't want to be a baby.
So, any of you first time moms out there - enjoy where your children are at right now, because before you know it, they will be almost 5, their baby fat will be all but gone, and they will be reading.  And you will so much miss those first things that you didn't take the time to cherish :)

I am a first time mum to an 11 month old little boy... thanks for the little reminder on needing to cherish every moment. I find myself in far too much of a hurry sometimes.
