My three Girls, are my World.

I remember the day each one was born. Feeling their little fingers as they were laid on my belly for the first time. I remember counting stork bites. Tickling little toes. Trying to figure out how DH and I ever managed to make somthing so beautiful. My favorite thing to do was to lay them on my forearms. Their tiny heads in my hands and their little feet on my breast. A perfect fit. Then cradling them with one arm while they nursed. So tiny. Hehe, I even remember my DH's stupid jokes about my breasts behing bigger than the baby's head.

Now they are almost 5, almost 3 and almost 2.

My middle daughter, Kaida, made me realize somthing tonight. They're really, really growing up. I didn't notice it too much or it didn't hurt too bad with my oldest since she had two little siblings right behind her. But tonight I really had to face it.

Kaida woke up and walked into the living room, not even half awake. She crawled up into my lap and wanted to be held, cradled. She was almost too tall for me to do this. The little baby that once fit so perfectly in my arms, that I was afraid of hurting or squishing, is now almost too tall. I still found a way, just as I still find a way to hold my 5 year old. Thankfully she's just barely taller than the 3 year old, lol. I know this might sound weird for Moms of average height, but I'm just over 5 ft.

I know I can't keep them from growing and would never want to! But God, if you're listening, could you give me another inch or two so I can keep up with them for at least another year or so?
