It’s crazy how fast time flies. This video of Emma was taken just about a month ago and she has already grown three new teeth since. I feel like I had just given birth to her but actually, she’s turning one year old in a few weeks!
I’m discovering that it’s trickier to watch and record every single moment with the second child than it was with the first. That’s because life is plain busier with two kids, specially when one of them is a curious toddler. Kayo and I tried our best to take notice of everything Emma did and capture each milestone she reached with the hopes of stretching time. However, the days and months swiftly pass us by.

I find myself holding on to all things “baby” about Emma and at the same time celebrating the fact that she’s growing and learning so much about herself and the world around her. It’s bittersweet, this parenting thing. I’m discovering that nothing will ever stay the same. Things will constantly change and I will always have to adjust and adapt. There will always be something to lay aside or let go. But that is also the beauty of it. It’s never boring because there’s always change and something new to look forward to.
Before I know it, Emma will be running around and she will want to be on her own two feet more than stay in my arms. But for now, I will cuddle her as much as I can. She’s only turning one anyway! 🙂
