I just love sleepy pictures!

How can signs of your baby getting older be so much fun and sad at the same time? I love to watch Camden master knew things; recently we offered him play-doh and he played so good with no attempts to eat it. That is so nice for me, but it also means that he is not much of a baby. For the last 14 months I have freely disposed of the baby paraphernalia as he reached the new milestones without ever thinking twice. But it hit me the other day that I may not fully appreciate the time that our baby has been a baby. (Please do not read this wrong, I don't want any more babies, I just want to savor time while it lasts.) For that matter, my other kids are growing too fast too! So I am trying harder to enjoy each of my children before they are gone, grown, etc. (At Time Out For Women, Hilary Weeks said "I will know my children for all of eternity as adults, what a sacred privilege it is to know them as children."). Yet I have discovered that even when you know they will only be children for a short time there is no way to make time slow down or remember all the things you think you will never forget.
