It’s amazing how much my little L. is growing up. First, a tiny baby L., grown into a little and eventually she’ll just be my…well, L. Of course she’ll always be my little L. (my baby L., for what it’s worth) I can already see the special bond that mothers have with their daughters and I feel so lucky to be able to experience it. It is the sweetest. She can be the cutest, most adorable little button with the softest sweetest side. And then she turns around with spunk and sass and I’m like, hey. Yes, I love that. It can be a bit much for me at times when I’m handling both kids (happens to all moms, right?), but it’s going to serve her well in life, for sure.
So, she’s about to hit the halfway mark between 2 and 3 and I’m getting a little sappy about it all. After all, she’s my last little one and it makes it harder to get rid of her things. This little rocking bunny will probably stay in her room as long as she wants it. Her entire room is still as it looked when she came home from the hospital – crib and all. She’s my little L, but I find myself telling her to be a big girl, yet secretly longing for her to be my baby L. just a little bit longer. Sob.
She got rid of her pacifier this month and that’s one huge milestone. Potty training is definitely on the agenda, but it’s not looking great right now. I think it’s just another excuse for me to hold on to my “baby” in her sweet little lamb diapers a bit longer. Rock her to sleep? Yep, still do. Kiss her one zillion times until she can’t stop giggling? That, too.
Mamas, did you feel this way about your last?
