Little Things.

Friday, November 9, 2012

I have many thoughts about these pictures, but I don't know how to turn them into words. I'm already feeling nostalgic for this chapter in my life. I'm having anxiety about these days slipping away too quickly....without my notice. I want to remember all of the little things that went on in our day-to-day
when it was just me and Parker hanging out at home. The low hum of his sleep machine, his sighs and grunts. Walking into the empty living room after laying him down with only the noise of daytime television to keep me company. Drowning in loads of laundry that smell like baby, trying to pick my way through piles of tiny shoes and socks, cardboard books, and creepy little toys that play music at random.
I'm very excited for him to grow up. I'm very excited to see him as a little person with feelings and thoughts and a voice of this own. I cannot wait for Christmases when he will make a list for Santa and help me bake cookies (or just make a mess in the kitchen). But I'm getting ahead of myself. And I need to remember that.
Here's to soaking up those little things. :)
Sorry for the sap, I guess I'm just a mom who has many feelings today. :)
Happy Friday!


  1. Oh Katy, I wish I could stop the clock. Time does go by very fast. Savor all of those little things. Enjoy him in the moment, because those moments you spoke of will be gone. I miss the days of my kids being babies. Of being tiny. I miss the baby smell (my babies smelled so good!). I miss the toothless grins and the baby babble, cooing, etc. My kids are now 24, 14 and just about 6. My middle just started high school this year. I know these last four years are going to go in the blink of an eye. I can't believe it is still Christmas. Wasn't the New Year just weeks ago?? This whole year has just gone by at warp speed!! I too am a mom that just wants to enjoy those little things.
