Can we just push pause?

Babies grow up so fast. Sometimes I wish I could just push pause and stop time so I can relish in these wonderful childhood years just a bit longer. But alas, babies grow into toddlers, toddlers grow to be preschoolers, and then we send them off to school and our little babies are now big kids ready to take on the world.

While I may not have much time left where my little baby is still a baby (she just started crawling like last week!), I am going to enjoy every last minute of everything baby. Like this precious moment where Allison and daddy were playing pat the couch while she was practicing how to stand on her own. It was really cute, trust me. 🙂

Or the moments where she is learning how to grasp things better and better every day. Those tiny little puffs weren’t always so easy to pick up, but she has become a pro in no time!

The use of a plate isn’t really necessary at this point either, but I think she likes it. She always seems excited when I put her puffs in a bowl or on a plate, perhaps because it makes her feel just a bit bigger. Isn’t that how it always goes? When you are little you can’t wait to grow up and when you are getting older you wish time would slow down.

So yes, I wish there was a pause button I could push and just slow everything down once in a while. I know these moments won’t last forever so I’m trying to cherish them while I can.

What about you, do you have moments where you could just press pause and take it all in?

    Oh my goodness, Allison is SO cute! I completely agree with you, it always feels like time is going by so quickly – I already can barely remember when my girls were this age as it feels like I blinked and they’re both in school already!

    I loved these puffy snacks for my daughter. They are really easy to take along to the park etc. Plus they are so light so they do not add extra weight into the (already heavy) diaper bag.

    When my first child was a baby, each new milestone was so novel & exciting. But what we didn’t realize as we celebrated all of her accomplishments was that she was rushing out of baby-dom way too fast. I am trying so hard to let them be children as long as possible, but they keep insisting on getting older!

    Oh, isn’t this the truth, sister? I BLINKED, and my baby is now 12. TOO FAST! SLOW DOWN! Someone posted this the other day, and it broke my heart thinking about how much time I have left.
    “There are only 940 Saturday’s from the time your child is born until they turn 18. 260 of them are gone by the time your child is 5. Not to mention the weekends they’ll be with friends, or playing sports. So use them wisely! Life is too short!!”

    time goes by way to fast, my oldest baby graduates this year and my youngest turned 1 in April. I wish I could just pause them where they are and just enjoy the entire time. I love watching them hit the milestones but at the same time there is a pain because I know it is either the first of them, meaning they will leave soon, or the last of them and I won’t see them again until I have grandchildren. I love your pics, too cute and my kids always loved the puffs. Nicoli hasn’t tried the yogurt ones yet.

    ALL THE TIME! My 4 year old, who turns 5 on Monday, AHHH!!! will be our only, and it really kills me when I realize each moment is the only time I will experience him at this age or stage. Its heartbreaking, but I try to make the most of each moment! And pictures, LOTS of pictures.

    I most certainly do and I would also like to push rewind. I’d so love to start all over and do it again!

    Now I have grandchildren who are growing up too fast. We all love those years when they are small. Thank goodness we can still remember so many cute things they did!
