Entertained

Julia is growing up fast and it's hard on this mommy's heart! With Elena & Chloe, I couldn't wait for them to reach the next milestone, whatever that was. It was hard having two little ones and no helpers. I was in a hurry for them to grow up and get easier.

With Lydia, I enjoyed it all. I was in no hurry. I had a blast with every new thing she did.

But with Julia, I want her to SLOW DOWN! Being an older and hopefully wiser mom than I was before, many things are so much more fun. I'm more relaxed and I don't take anything for granted. I go to bed at night just thankful that I've gotten to have Julia for this long. I realize what a gift she is and how blessed I am to have her.

When Elena says: "When Julia's 10, I'll be 20!", I cover my ears and ask her never to remind me of that ever again! Please slow down, kids! I'm enjoying you all so much!

So true, its hard to believe that the time will fly when they are born, but it does. My oldest is 12 and my youngest is 6 and I look at them and think - when did you get so big? I love spending time with them.
