The moments I never want to forget

I've told Ben a few times that sometimes I worry Griffin is my last baby. I'm not sure why I worry about that considering we have both said we aren't done--but, sometimes I do. 

I find myself a lot of times literally just soaking up all of his sweet 3-almost-4 month self. I kind of feel like I rushed things with Grayson. I was always looking forward to that next milestone & pushing him to get there. This time, even though I get excited about reaching milestones, I also know that they mean my baby is getting older. I'm not rushing through. I'm enjoying it a lot more. 

I know I complain about my lack of sleep & pacifier woes; but, the other night when I was snuggling Griffin in our bed around 4:00am, I thought to myself, "may I never take these moments for granted." 

I know how fast they grow up. Trust me, 2 years went by in the blink of an eye.  I know Griffin won't always want to snuggle with his mama or be worn in my K'Tan. I'm trying my hardest to slow down & just really enjoy the way things are right now. I don't want to forget these moments.

I feel ya sister. I've caught myself thinking of Connor at various stages/ages and told myself to enjoy the now before its long gone!

Aw. I had concerns about taking this pregnancy for granted and it going by too quickly. I wanted to savor the being pregnant part. But now that I'm halfway done, I'm like, "Who cares about that part?" and I'm already gaining the mindset of savoring...with Ethan now, as an only child, and eventually with how I want to do things differently with Gabe.

How many do you guys want to have? Do you know?
