    Oh, I have written this same post at least ten times. I think every mom has these feelings, and you’ve captured them so well.

    My little boy is not quite three, yet I look back at pictures of him from 6, 9, 12 months and have a hard time remembering what it was like when he was so small, and chubby and tantrum-free.

    Great post. Made me tear up….I’ve been doing that a lot lately with my empty nest. Take lots of pics and write things down….my baby boy is 21 now and I can’t believe how fast it went!

    I have begged both my girls to stop growing. Neither one will listen.

    Oh Janice, I get it. Mine son is almost 4 and I whisper to him in his sleep every night to please slow down and give me time to cement every moment in my mind. It scares me so, that even now I have to get his baby book out to remember what he was like at 6 months.

    I hear you!! I have been looking at pictures of my son from 4 years ago (he’s 9 now) and the changes are so amazing. They do grow up way too fast! It is exciting and entertaining to see glimpses of what they will be like when they are grown up, but still hard to let go of the sweetness and innocence of youth.

    I know the feeling. I try to remember what my days were like with just my little girl (I have four now), and I just don’t remember. She was so quiet and little and sweet. And now she’s almost 8 (isn’t that OLD!) and she was invited to a sleepover (which she didn’t do!), and she does her homework without my help and she just seems to be growing up so fast!
