growing up

we were eating dinner at PF Changs one night..
Lexi didn't have a nap that day and it was around 9:30
she crawled over into my lap wanting me to hold her, with tys phone in hand ready to watch netflix..
well she didn't make it even two second and fell fast asleep in my arms hugging tys cell phone.
I kept just looking down at her and could not help but see a little adult face. it was a different face
she is growing up right before our eyes and is becoming so much older
i don't like it, i want to freeze time and hold on to her at this age.
it has been by far my most favorite stage 2 1/2-3 years
some say there are "terrible twos"
i would beg to differ.
i think we had terrible twos from age 1 - 2 1/2

one of the major perks I can plainly see of having a miscarriage,
is the precious bonding one on one time i have with this little one.
she has truly become my best friend and my little side kick

she turns three in 10 days
i'm happy to say last month I finally bought one of those books
a specific place where I can record things she says
she speaks in her own opinion these days,
a lot of it influenced by how we speak..
how those around her speak..
things she comes up with on her own..
things like:
"i don't believe it" "geez woman" "i need it so bad" "this way or no?" "hold still"

she has so much spunk and sweetness we are so very lucky.
love you lulu


  1. She is so adorable. I'm sorry it's sad to see her growing up so fast. I can only imagine what that's like. The fun thing is that she will grow up into a lovely woman because you guys love her so much:)

  2. She is such a little cutie.

    I know the feeling, Breanna just turned 2 and I can already see the baby is gone! I love watching her grow and learn but I also want to keep her at this age!

  3. how sweet. she is so darling!!

  4. It is so hard to accept that your little girl is growing up, and before you know it will be going off and doing things on her own. This year is a big milestone for us - my daughter turned 5 and she's starting kindergarten in the fall! I cry every year on her birthday. She's my baby! I totally understand what you're feeling right now. But what an adorable little girl Lexi is turning into! I just love all of her poses she does in pictures. Cherish every moment!!

  5. This is so sweet! She's adorable! Taylor Swifts song fits this perfectly :)

  6. So sweet! My daughter is 4 and it can be so hard to believe sometimes! After going through a postpartum mood disorder after she was born and then ttc for over 18 months, I often try to seek out all the good that has come from this and I completely get how amazing the bond can be and I absolutely love having my daughter as my side kick too :)
