Some days it feels like the earth is rotating a little too quickly around the sun, that seasons are just too short, that this daughter of mine is growing too fast. Some days I try so hard to burn these little moments into my mind so that I can access them again in the future, when we are on to a new stage and a new adventure.

I try and remember the way the sun feels on my skin, the slight breeze, the sound of a distant mower, Bumblebee rolling in the grass.


I hope I will recall Cordelia saying, "Watermelon good mama," because she just discovered how wonderful watermelon is---for the very first time! I try to memorize the feel of chubby toddler arms wrapped around my neck as a little girl, mouth dripping with watermelon juice, "whispers" in my ear, " Love you mama."

I wonder will I remember that exact moment?

Yes. I still do with my first-born.

Oh goodness I know exactly how you feel... the years whizz by. Tonight we discovered that Esme has her first wobbly tooth. It is the very first tooth that came through 5 years ago. I cannot tell you how emotional this is making me feel.. the little tooth that caused so much pain, angst and excitement on it's arrival is now ready to be replaced by a grown up tooth! I'm actually going to make myself cry if I carry on typing xx Enjoy every minute of Cordelia xx
