Growing Up is Hard to Do.

You would think that I could handle this by now. I've done it before, twice to be exact. This is nothing new but can you please tell that to my heart? Why you ask? because this little adorable thing is growing up.

I've been through it with the other two and I know how it starts. First you realize that they are getting heavy. Then you have to put away the 3-6 month clothes, then you hold off on putting up the 6-9 month clothes until you can no longer convince yourself that high water pants are in season. Finally you close your eyes and don't look back as you venture out of the infant clothing section into the .... *gulp*.... toddler section.

Next they want to feed themselves and they even learn how to ask for things. But babies can't talk? Where's my baby? Where did she go? Then they'll start running. You'll sit there amazed at how fast those little chunky legs will go until the day you realize that newborns can't run and this one no longer wants to snuggle, she wants to run. It's a heart jumping yet heartbreaking type moment of your life.

The last straw will be when she no longer wants (or is forced to because lack of walking skills) to sit with you and play, she wants to join the big girls and play in their room. They'll be kicking and screaming about how they don't want their baby sister to play but we all know by now... she's no longer a baby.

Princess Newbie is a toddler now. Be still my heart. It's breaking and rejoicing all at the same time.
