It's Already Begun...

nostalgia that is. Do you find yourself getting more sentimental, emotional, and plain sad and happy all at the same time when your child's birthday is coming up? I do. Last year I was a wreck for about a month. When my baby turned 1, I felt no longer needed, and I instantly wanted another one. Nice, huh...or selfish, hmm...

This year is proving to be no different in the memory department, but oddly enough, I am excited for Molly to turn 2. I feel like her world is so different and ever changing. She is discovering something about herself or her surroundings everyday. With 2 comes adventure I think.

But it doesn't stop me from thinking 2 years ago this week I was huge, never thought she would come (I was past my due date!) hot, swollen ankles, wanted everyone to stop asking me "Haven't you had that baby yet?!", and I really wanted this one lady at church to quit asking me if I was sure I wasn't having twins!

My world definitely has changed since the birth of Molly Ann. I would never take one day back, maybe some do overs for selfish reasons, but what doesn't kill ya, makes you stronger. So bear with me this week as I fondly remember one of the most important days in my life.

PS-I am coming up on my 100th post...so watch out for my first giveaway!

Today we are having a party for our two year old grandson Harrison. It is so much fun seeing all of the changes and different stages that our little ones go through. They do grow up fast.

I hope Molly Ann will have a wonderful 2nd birthday this week, and that her sweet mommy will enjoy it too.

Love, Linda @ Truthful Tidbits

It's so hard for me to believe that Molly is turning 2. (Maybe that's b/c I know Kyndra won't be too far off from turning 2 also. Eeep!)

I bet that got old that lady asking ya about the twins. Like you wouldn't know if there were 2 babies in there!! ha!

I'm coming up on my 100th post too on my family blog. I think I am at 93 right now. I'm gonna do a lil giveaway to 'celebrate' too. ;) On Carleigh's blog I have 276 posts so I thought about doing something when I hit 300 and then when I hit 100,000 visitors.

That is certainly the truth! I randomly broke out in tears all throughout the day on Autumn's first and second birthdays!

Ha! That's funny about the lady at church! It's so hard to watch them grow up, but so much fun all at the same time!

A very special time. I know how it is. Bella just turned four and when they no longer need you to help with the presents and play with the friends, you feel cast aside. Silly, I know, but a mom is always so 'needed' and it's a hard adjustment when little by little they become independent. Have a wonderful time celebrating :o)
