baby-ness is ending....booo

little miss sofie is all growing up and trying to leave her baby-ness behind. who said that was okay? i did not okay this.

in the last few weeks, she has just bounded forward. she's standing, feeding herself, communicating, signing...it's nuts. where did it all happen? i mean, she's the last one...and then, all the sudden, no more "baby"...toddler happened!



every now and then, i still get the little preemie-ness princess and it makes me smile.


well, one year bday is coming up...and i'm not sure i'm mentally prepared. after 4 kids, why is this sooooo hard?

isn't it amazing how fast they transfer from baby to toddler. they never seem to ask for permission to do it either

Cammie said...

assuming she is your last baby I would guess that is why it is so hard. My "baby" is 2 and a half and I still cant not think of her as a baby....

Jen said...

Oh I know, they never seem to ask permission to grow up. One day they are so small and van fit in your hand and the next they are telling you no and running away.

I miss my "little baby". Now that she will be 7 this year, I still call her Baby!

Jaysi said...

I hope its not mean to say, but I love her crying face!! So cute!

I know what you mean about the growing up. Finn is walking everywhere now and I feel like my "baby" is gone. :( Time for another I guess. Well, maybe not!

I KNOW EXACTLY WHAT YOU MEAN, MAHAILA JUST HAD HER FIRST BIRTHDAY ON THE THIRD. ITS AMAZING HOW FAST SHE HAS GROWN AND WILL CHANGE THIS NEXT YEAR. I GUESS THE ONLY DIFFERENCE IS THAT THIS WON'T BE MY LAST ONE. I LOVE BABIES TOO MUCH!!!!

Penz said...

I know. Lo is almost 2 (Feb.) and I find myself missing the baby times. She is also #4...makes you want to have more of the little ones but, I'm not sure I can do one more..

I love your pics though. Happy new year!

She is the baby and when the last one starts growing up it really hits home.

Abby said...

My mother in law always says I think I'll just put a brick on your head so you quit growing and stay little forever to my kids...I'm not so sure it would work ;)

she is VERY cute and you have a beautiful family!

Ahhhh...losing the babyness is tough. It almost makes me want to have another one. Almost.

Pam said...

they are all so cute... I wish I had the answer to why it is so hard... but that is why I have to focus on enjoying and treasuring today! What more can I do!?!

Aileigh said...

I know how you feel! I was noticing the other day how my preemie is almost 3! Oh it does go by so fast! Hugs to you!

Rebecca Jo said...

How cute is that face....

Mandy said...

I am going through this right now too...and my baby is 3! Yes, they grow up too fast, but can I say I love the new relationship I am developing with my oldest! It is a mixture of missing the baby but loving how the relationship changes and matures...oh, you have a teen, I am sure you know exactly what I am talking about! :-)

Dana said...

Oh my gosh! She is precious! I love baby pictures...

And can I just say your blog layout is way cool? I love it!

Mommy Doodles said...

Guess it's time for another then :) I AM SO OVER diapers. I had 4 in them and am down to one :) Would love a couple more kids only potty trained!

CC said...

Awwwww! It's so sad for me too. We know there are no more babies, so it's hard to let them grow up.

The Nice One said...

Awww, how beautiful.
My baby turned 7 this year and I am really starting to get that baby lust thing again. Your pics aren't helping ;)
