Motherhood in a nutshell seems to be watching our children grow up way to fast and then secretly crying in our bedrooms at night while looking back at all the itty bitty baby photos of them. We are already almost through the newborn stage and I am shocked at how big my sweet baby boy is. As I stated in my previous post, pregnancy and the early days of having a newborn seem like a lifetime ago and we are only five weeks into our new life with Jackson James. I am so thankful that we took the time to have newborn photos done with Jackson and Reagan when he was just 13 day old.
It is so easy to get lost in all the toddler chaos, Summer fun, sleepless nights, endless bottle washing, pumping, and nursing. I find so much JOY in looking back at these photos and remembering the sweetness and love that I have for these two tiny humans! The days feel like they are going by ten times faster then when Reagan was a newborn. I find myself clinging to the little moments with him, wanting to snuggle and just love on him for hours. This of course is only possible during Reagan’s naps and then I officially get NOTHING done every single day. Mommy guilt over who is getting more attention, affection, and one-on-one time is in full swing and I cry on the daily. I am in a constant emotional battle between deciding to play with Reagan, snuggle Jackson, love on the dogs, clean the house, stay caught up on laundry, or simply breathe. God forbid I should take a NAP for five minutes. I remembering feeling bored and like a total mom-zombie with Reagan and now I blink and a whole day with both of them has passed before I know it.
The baby days are numbered. Reagan has already changed so much, as well as Jackson, and I know its only a matter of time before they don’t look anything like these photos. Time is going by much too quickly already. I love these little babies with my whole heart. Seeing their sweet expressions and capturing their personalities in this moment, thats what its all about friends!
