One Step Closer

Isla is now consistently sleeping like a big kid. She now sleeps with her head on a pillow and actually keeps a blanket on top of her. And, for some reason, this really seems to have gotten to me. It was like a sucker punch to the gut that she is growing up.

With Connor, I have always been excited for him to reach another milestone. It is just so stinking fun to watch kids grow up. And with Isla, the enthusiasm is still there, but there is just this feeling in the pit of my stomach that I can't shake. There is no smaller person behind her, so I don't know if I will get to watch all this happen again. I pray that time comes again, but I really don't know if it will. Because of that, with all the joy that comes with each milestone, there is also just a little bit of sadness as well.

Thankfully Isla is just such a mama's girl. Connor was never this way to the degree that Isla fact, he is pretty much all about his daddy these days. So, I am thankful that God blessed me with a little girl that gives her mama plenty of cuddles and kisses. I just hope those cuddles and kisses keep coming for a while longer.

In the spirit of honesty, I totally woke Isla up from her nap by taking a few too many pictures. Oops!
