TGIF & Emma 10mo

 She's not cruising yet, just leaning against the couch when I put her there.  :)

My daughter turned 10 months old this week.
I was looking back at old videos of her, where she's a fidgety bundle of baby not even aware of her limbs while lying on her back and bubbling at the mouth because her drool came in.  So cute.  And yet a little sad.

It's like my friend Christy says, "One of my friends told me that one of the hardest things about motherhood is you're in a constant state of grieving something that will never be again."  That is totally true.

But, it made me think about my writing, too.  My writing is not the same now as it was 10 years ago.  And I'm the better for it.

So, my daughter will grow, but it's a good thing.  I'll just keep telling myself that, while a small part of me wishes she'd stay a baby forever.
