Here, catching my breath

It's the way things are these days... months pass in the blink of an eye. I can only say I hope to do better, that things should settle down in a few months. Then I'll no doubt begin the looking-back process on this time of my life and I may well marvel at everything that seemed to happen all at once. The work that comprised most of the insanity (which won't be captured here, but could easily fill a suspense novel), the dinners that were cooked (or ordered, depending on that day's stress level), the home improvements, the weekend guests or weekend trips, the changes in the lives of family and friends. There's been so much activity and then through all of it, this growing, incredible girl who makes everything else unimportant when she laughs. My baby is a real kid now, almost a year old.


It'll be good for me to forget some of the day-to-day happenings of these last few months, but I don't want to forget one thing about her. She's so much fun, this kid - so happy, so inquisitive, so funny, and so active. She's in such a hurry - a mouth full of teeth, standing solo, walking now with just one hand asking for ours, making leaps like mad. Getting to know her and cheer her on has been among the biggest joys I've ever known. Maybe she gets this hurry-hurry-hurry thing from me. Maybe in 2015 we can both take it easy a little bit.

(Ha!)

  3. Maggie, I feel like everything you've just said here applies to my life too...crazy and wonderful in very similar ways. I applaud you for finding the time to catch your breath! I feel like I cheer my Annie on too, to all these exciting and fun milestones, at the same time as I'm wistfully wishing she wouldn't grow so fast. Coming up on the first birthday, I'm also hoping next year might be more relaxing even as I know the years will probably just pass faster from here on. Sigh (happy sigh).

  4. I cannot get over how adorable she is. Yes, life is crazy and hectic and wonderful and flying by so incredibly fast. I feel the exact same way. The more I try to slow down and take it all in, the faster it seems to go. I'm so glad all is well with you guys and your little lady.
