Last night, Sarah’s behavior reminded me just how much she’s growing up. As she was put to bed, and she heard Allen leave for work, she shouted out “Goodbye Dad! Drive safely!” Emma immediately repeated her with her own “Goodnight Dad! It’s Five O’clock! Drive savvvvewy!” They went to sleep soon after he left, and there I was snuggling Ava, and thinking about how fleeting it all is. It was not so long ago I was holding Sarah as a newborn, Not that long ago that Emma was the new baby, and now Ava is already looking more like a healthy sturdy baby instead of a fragile newborn. They grow up. I love that they do, and I hate that they do. Babies are so sweet, Toddlers are so energetic, and Sarah as a preschooler is a riot. All her little mini adult behaviors make me laugh on a daily basis. Most of them wouldn’t translate to print, or this blog would be full of them! I love each one at every age, and yet I miss the age they were before. Motherhood is full of memories, since things go by so fast. I guess I will learn to enjoy each moment as it happens, and gladly tuck it away for future enjoyment as a memory, since nothing seems to last for long around here!
