I am having a hard time dealing with my baby getting bigger.  It probably sounds ridiculous, but it's how I feel.  She's a little over two months old and I'm like OMG time is flying! and I can't remember her being a tiny newbie.  I just feel like I'm going to blink and she'll be a year old.  I know that she's going to grow and change, and I love the baby stage so much that I know I will miss it.  I think part of the problem is that I've wanted a baby for years and struggled with infertility.  She feels like a dream to me. 


How do you deal with these feelings?  Obviously I'll need to learn to deal with it somehow because it's inevitable she will change and grow.

Yep! Especially since at the same time my two year old is two! TWO! How did that happen? I feel like she should still be the tiny one in my arms. Im missing her baby days and he is already starting to lose the newborn look. Boo. But, on the plus side there are so many thing he can do! Smiles smile.gif all the time.

Glad I'm not alone!! I love the smiles.  I've been telling myself that I've enjoyed everything so far and will hopefully be able to do it again in a few years.  I feel like my pregnancy went by so fast, and I know her first year will too!
