where has the time gone

Wow my little "baby" is almost 11 months old...where has the time gone? I'm typing this while she's asleep in her crib. It's amazing how much she has changed since she was born from my adorable, itty bitty 6 lb 4 oz little one. She is so independent now, crawling all over the house, exploring, getting stuck under furniture, pointing and talking, trying to walk...and saying "Mommom, Dada, Dog". I can't even begin to imagine what life will be like watching her change everyday.....so amazing.

I guess I've been reflecting a lot lately with the new baby coming on our last 10 months and things we've done and things we may choose to do differently. I guess the thing I've learned the most is to trust my mom instincts, even though they may not always be right...I need to trust them, I have them for a reason! I've had such great support from family and friends, people I can call when I'm scared (first fever was a huge one) but I think you always have some knowing underneath on what to do. I was so worried about Rozlynn and her sleep but honestly I don't mind rocking her to sleep at night, snuggling her, spending time together. I just look back and see how fast this time has gone by...soon she won't want to snuggle with me at all because she will be to busy, she'll be wanting to spend time with a boyfriend more than her parents, etc.

I will never regret holding my daughter to much!
