I spent a bit of time tonight going through pictures on iPhoto. I became very nostalgic: I recently cut my hair short and I am missing my long hair. And also, my children are growing up quickly–they are kids now and not babies. Still little kids, but hardly any baby left to the naked eye. Each day, they surprise me with their sophistication, humor and defiance. At some point every afternoon, I have to explain: “You are not the mommy here!”
Once Henry and Ellie are out of diapers this spring (or summer, or fall), little will be left to connect me to what they were all like as newborns and babies. Other than my failing memory, and photos like these.
SO CUTE!!! Man. So big so fast. Such a curse, huh? I love these pics of you too- so happy but I know at the same time you’re exhausted 🙂
so exhausted! lol. thank you– it is weird and fun to see how teeny they were not so long ago. and how much better my hair looked. 😉
LOVE the comment, “You are not the mommy here”. Unfortunately, that continues well into adulthood!
Weird how much I want the time to go fast now (going on two months of very little sleep with a newborn) while knowing that I will look back in a few years and want it to have gone slower. I wish I had a time machine so that my better rested future self could come back to enjoy these days while my current self got to sleep in for four or more consecutive hours.
Ahhhh. L.O.V.E. I love those pictures. They remind me of *sniff* – mine. The one amazing thing about Alexander… he is still a baby. I find myself wanting to cuddle him more and more as the others get older. Love your WW post!!
I love those pictures, especially the one of Ellie in Saugerties. I just love her expression in that one. I cut my hair once. It’s not true, what they say. You CAN go back. I missed my girly locks.
can we see pics of the short hair?
your kids were adorable babies. i mean, adorable kids but particularly adorable babies.
Hair is hair and will grow back! Your hair looks great short also!!
