She’s my youngest and so we’re both holding onto those last few baby things. The soother, the “bottle” (sippy), Gustave (her bear). I’m going to snuggle and hold her a little longer. I’m trying to soak in the last days of babyhood around our house. When she is young and small and her world revolves around me.
I want to remember that she wants me the most. That she will barely let me leave the room without her and that when I tell her that 3 year olds don’t have soothers, she’ll announce that she doesn’t want to be three anyways. Some day when she is a teenager in the middle of emotions and confusion and perhaps sometimes anger at me, I want to look back and remember that I was her world. And that some days all she wanted was to sit on my lap and snuggle.
I’m trying to get in front of the camera more often. And it seems it’s just easier during the day with the littles and that I feel most comfortable not looking at the camera, but I to capture us as we are anyways. I’m so glad that I’m doing it.
