when did you get so big?
I thought we were prepared for the Bean and we were. The nursery was decorated, all the missing bits purchased and I remember newborn hell well enough for it to have not been too much of a shock.
However what I was not prepared for was the realisation that this little lady was no longer a baby. She’ll always be my little princess and my first born but I just don’t think I had realised just how grown up she already was. It’s like I went into hospital with a baby at home and came home to a fully fledged little girl.
I wasn’t prepared for that and I won’t lie when I say that I’ve cried over it. One thing its made me do though is cherish every cuddle, snuggle and kiss though as more than ever before I am aware that they are small for such a short time and before you know it they won’t need or want you anymore.
