If there's one thing I've learned being a mom..........

it is that kids grow up really fast.

I remember like it was yesterday when I had 2 little girls at home.
They were 15 months apart and by the time they were 2 and 3 they were just about the same height.
Everywhere we went people thought they were twins.

Akayla & Corina have always been best friends.

Akayla & Corina (age 18 months & 2 1/2 years old)

Now 12 years later I have 2 little girls at home again.
They are 2 1/2 years apart.
They are at very different stages but they still love playing together.

Leandra & Elora (age 1 year and 3 1/2)

This time with them is so precious.

I know from experience that I don't have much time with my girls before they are on their way out my door.

What will I do when my kids walk out my door for good?
The thought makes my heart hurt. Really bad.

good things:

getting a text every day from my daughter telling me she loves me

playing barbies with Elli

playing a game with Tanner while he told me about his day

taking my oldest girls to Harry Potter - on a school night!

All of your kids are so georgeous!!!! It is a terrible heartache to see our children grow and know what's coming next. It's hard to realize that Aaron will be 18 next year!!! AAAHHHH Just the thought of that one sends me into panic mode!!!

We just need to keep enjoying all the time we can with them
