Simply Silly

Photobucket

"Nobody ever told me that motherhood is a constant gnawing hunger, a confusing mix of envisioning future ages and milestones, cars and boys and the way her grown up hand will feel in mine, and simultaneously mourning tiny pink socks that surely only ever fit seashells." S. Murdock

The minute I saw that quote I fell in love! That sentiment is exactly what bounces around in my head almost daily. I envision her future and deeply miss her baby days- all in the same instant.

I have to remind myself to live in this moment.

and

today

she is my silly girl.

I have never heard that quote before but it IS perfect.

It seems like just yesterday Dmitry was toddling around in diapers and learning to speak...now he is carrying a cell phone and worried about acne. It still amazes me how quickly it went by...and makes me even more determined to live in the moment.

Love the picture, I love her little tongue sticking out...adorable!!

PS...If you have a Macy's near you they were advertising a pettiskirt in the sale add for 15.00!! I am sure it is not the same quality as the Belle Ame or the other big brands but I am swinging by tomorrow to pick up one..they are not on line.

Isn't that quote perfect and so much truth to it. As we celebrate Bella's 4th birthday today, I can't believe 4 years have gone by. It has been a flash of time! Before I know it, she will be 10 and I will be 50! OMG we can't be that old so soon! :) I have an update on my blog! :)

Amazingly cute pic!!!

DITTO girl friend! You are really getting good at the photography. The best thing about this picture is that Isabela looks just like her Mommy. Isn't God so fun that way. Warms my heart to know that I must too resemble my heavenly Father. Hugs.
