Mandy from She Breathes Deeply wrote a post that really spoke words that I have felt and am feeling about my beautiful children and them growing up. You can read her post here.
This is the comment I left her:
I couldn't have said it any better myself!.
You took the words right out of my mouth, except for the part where you said you wonder how you could love another child as much as Lily.
When I got pregnant with my second (my daughter) I cried a lot through that pregnancy thinking "Am I going to be able to love this baby as much as I love Judah" and then I would be at peace for a while until the thought "Am I going to love the baby more than I love Judah" and it kept going back and forth. It was an emotional time for me!
Once I had her I realized my love wasn't split, or that I loved one more than the other but that my heart grew with having her.
Then I got pregnant with my third and had no problems. I knew my heart would just grow.
This is what I am adding on so I didn't ramble on her blog!
Now I see them growing and thinking about how fast it is passing and I get sad thinking about them not needing me anymore.
Soon they will be pre-teens, then teenagers then adults.
It's going to fly by like the past 5 years has!
I can't believe my Judah is going to be in kindergarten this year!!!! NEXT MONTH! Awww.
He is getting so big and I am going to cry so much when he has his first day. But I know he will enjoy it!
