"Y'all - don't miss it. Don't get so caught up in what your sweet baby is doing or not doing. Don't obsess about this step or the next step or the one after that or what is going to happen twenty years down the line. Because one day you'll look at baby pictures and think about how adorable that baby was and how all you can remember is therapy and you can't even remember what her hair smelled like. So, ENJOY your baby. It doesn't matter when they walk or crawl or talk. It matters that they are here and that you love them and that they know it. Just don't miss it."
. . . how much emotional gratification I get from these blog awards ;) Sonia of A Hapa Girl and Her Hapa Family passed this along to me. Thank you, Sonia, I'm honored!
The rules of the award state that I must list seven things I love, and then pass the award onto seven bloggers I love to read.
1. Finnian's giggle and smooshy cheeks 2. Lilah's good nature and jiggly butt 3. Annabelle's laugh, and, yes, sometimes even her mischievousness 4. Daisy's hugs and beautiful curls 5. Joey's amazing brains and quirky "Joey-isms" 6. Kevin's love for his siblings and sense of compassion 7. Michael's talent, smarts, sense of humor, and devotion to his family.
See how I did that? Wayyy more than seven things :)
Blogs I love (and am therefore passing this award to):
It's hard to choose. If you look at my subscriptions in Google Reader, there are many more blogs that I follow, and I get so much out of every one of them. Thank you, everyone, for sharing your journeys with me. Seven Blogs I LOVE to read:
On July 7, 2008 our sixth child, Finnian, was born at home into loving hands. Shortly after he was born, we learned that he has Down syndrome. This is the ongoing story of how our family is being transformed by this little boy.
Hi! I'm Lisa, a 40-something Wonder Mom to six kiddos: Kevin (14), Joey (9), twins, Annabelle and Daisy (6), Lilah (4) and Finnian (3). Oh, and my husband is the multi-talented Michael. He tries to keep me in check, but I just keep on writing.
