Growing Fast And Tough Times

So I have been looking through all my kids pictures the last little while for a project I am working on and I really forgot how tiny they were!! It seems like Jaydan has always been walking and talking and Maddie has always been crawling and saying her few words. It is so bitter sweet to have them grow so much so fast. I LOVE how they are getting so big and smart but I miss the days of just holding them for hours and hours. They will always be my babies but its so sad to me to have Jaydan a toddler and Maddie is so close to not being considered an infant anymore. My babies are growing up more and more every single day. It feels like I just blinked and they arent babies anymore. I must be honest even looking at all these pictures and remember them being so small and innocent made me cry a bit. These 2 mean everything in the world to me. I love them more then words can describe. They make me smile constantly. Just looking at them makes me so happy! I love watching them sleep. They are so innocent. It makes the hectic day worth that 1 moment. I of course get overwhelmed sometimes when they cry all day, act up and dont listen but my smart sister always points out a song to me that the words are so true. Sometimes it just gets the best of you and gets so hard you dont think you can handle it anymore but then your kids look at you and smile or they call you mommy and it all seems so worth it. The song Steph points out to me when Im having bad days just think of the chours of Trace Adkins song Your Gonna Miss This and it says.....

You're gonna miss this
You're gonna want this back
You're gonna wish these days hadn't gone by so fast
These are some good times
So take a good look around
You may not know it now
But you're gonna miss this

I posted a couple pics I found that are some of my favorites that I wanted to share.

This is what happens when daddy throws a cube of jello on Jays highchair

I LOVE this one!! Look at those eyes!!

Jaydan enjoying playing on and eating grass

You can tell you love your babies. You are such an amazing mom. They are lucky to have you and so am I.

I know what you mean about your babies growing up so fast. It seems like just yesterday when I was telling Kamrin that I love him more than he will ever know. He would look at me like I that was not possible. Now that he has his own children I am sure that he knows EXACTLY what I was talking about.

Ashely,tonight when you go to bed would you please hug MY baby and tell him "I love him more than he will ever know" for me.

Love ya'll
