How does the time get away from us so quickly? I ask myself that all the time. My kids are all getting big so fast and I feel like if I blink Im going to miss it. I love being a photographer, and I love being a mother. I live the life I never thought I could have. Both my passions wrapped into one life. I haven’t had to give up one for the other. Having 6 kids can be crazy, but it is so much fun too. I was laying in bed thinking last night about babies. I had 2 newborns this week. They were both so sweet and beautiful. I wonder if their mothers know how quickly it will go by. My oldest daughter Ashley just turned 16 in September and is now driving all over town and has a real job! Oh my goodness! I still remember how she smelled when I would snuggle her close to me after her bath. How small and helpless she felt in my arms at the measly 7 1/2 pounds. I thought I would never get to sleep again! Now I still don’t sleep, wondering if I made the right choices with her parenting, gave her the best education, loved her enough, told her too much, was a good enough example… All those things race through my mind as I try to sleep at night. It really is such a short time we have with our children, we need to make sure we are making the most of it. I still have 2 babies and love it. Jack is almost 3, I cant believe it! Savannah is 4 1/2 and a ball of fire. She is starting kindergarten next year, wow, where did that time go?? Children are such special blessings, make sure you tell your children that and love on them as much as possible, because you never know when they wont be there to snuggle.
Here is a sneak peek at the little babes from this week…
