(Tara-a few days old)
(Tara-a few days ago @ 18 months)
I am just amazed at how fast my little baby is growing! Even though I spend every moment with her and really immerse myself in her...baby-nesss...I can't keep up with her! I know that everyone says "time just flies by and before you know it, they are adults" but I don't think you can really be prepared for it. Tara is doing something new every day... she is growing up to be such a wonderful little girl full of sparkle and energy. She is loving, curious, rough and tumble and okay...a little uh...over indulged! Tomorrow I am going to turn one of my kitchen cupboards into her little play area. I am going to put all sorts of little toys and containers and interesting things to keep her busy and amazed. She loves strawberries, steamed veggies, baby yogurt and cheese. Her fave activity is "reading"...she wants me to read to her constantly. I think if I sing "Mary had a little lamb" one more time, I'm going to go a little kooky:) Her newest trick is spitting whenever she doesn't get her way. I am trying "time-outs" which don't seem to be working! But seriously though...I am so grateful to be her mom and to witness her life unfold. My heart just fills with such joy and love...motherhood wraps me up in love.
