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.
