Things I will miss

One of the girls in the online community I'm part of (babyfit.com) posted an interesting topic the other day - about the little things that she hopes she'll always remember about her little one. It was sweet and a lot of us joined in listing the various things that we will miss as our babies get older - there's so many, but I wanted to write some of them down on our blog so I would actually remember them (for sure this blog is going to be better for memories than the baby books). So here is my list - I will miss...
  • Her little coughs she makes to get attention
  • Kicking my belly as I dry her off after her bath and get her dressed
  • Her sour milk breath in the mornings
  • Her perfect gummy smiles - I keep taking pictures to make sure I don't forget what it looks like!
  • The way she reaches out to touch my face with both her hands when I lean over her (that one is new and I love love love it)
  • Her phantom sucking when she's in a deep sleep (that's her mouth + tongue doing the sucking thing, after her binkie has fallen out)
  • The way her mouth drops open when she's totally passed out
  • Her giggles - when you can get one out of her - I love these first laughing sounds
  • The way she reaches out to pet the cats when they walk by now - she's finally discovered they exist!
  • Her huge happy grins in the morning - I've never been a morning person but that can't help but make you smile when you see how happy someone is to see you when they wake up - makes me feel like the centre of her world
She has a few more sleepers that she's grown out of - which makes me so sad. I love seeing grow and learn new things, but it's also sad to see how quickly this time goes. I honestly didn't think I'd enjoy this baby stage so much, and now that I am, it's hard to see how quickly the time goes.

Taking clothes that don't fit out of the closet used to make me SO sad....it still does.

You'll blink and she'll be walking. It's horrible!
