People always give the same piece of advice to a new mom--
"Hold on to every moment, it goes faster than you think."
When I was first told that, I remember thinking.. "Sure. It will go by relatively quickly-- but does it really if you're expecting it to?" Umm, I was dead wrong.
Time does not go by at a relatively slowish pace.. Oh, no-- it SPEEDS by at a lightning fast pace! I sincerely have no idea where the last 11 months have gone. I feel like I was just lying in that hospital bed, pinching myself and trying to believe that I indeed had a child.
And not just any child, the most beautiful girl I had ever laid eyes on.
She was so soft and sweet and pink. She was the epitome of the most perfect shade of pink I had ever seen.
A few seconds later, I'm sitting here addressing invites for her FIRST BIRTHDAY!!!!!
Yes, my little Lu-bug is a busy little bee these days. She is crawling all around the house at a pace that clearly communicates she is on a mission! She has been eating more and more solids and seems to be enjoying them!
She recently tried (and loved!) spaghetti; blueberry muffins; chicken nuggets; green beans and just about anything lately! I caved and gave her a first french fry yesterday-- and she LOVED it. :)
We probably won't make that a habit though!
We continue to echo this verse within our home:
"The Lord has done great things for us; we are GLAD!"
