(ABOVE: My Big Girl ... she looks SO much bigger in this picture and her eyes are CRAZY blue - oh how I love her!!)
(ABOVE: My Little Charlotte riding her very 1st Carousel @ Chuck E Cheese - looking at her self in the mirror was the highlight of the ride!!)
I got some pictures emailed to me from Jolene and there is one in particular that almost made me tear up ... is this REALLY my baby? Is this really the baby who was a little more than 6 pounds at a week old? How and Why the heck does time go by without asking us moms if it is okay? Kind of makes me anxious and happy all at the same time ... I am happy that Charlotte is growing up so well and turning in to quite the little 'explorer'. I am happy to watch her face light up whenever her sister walks in the room. My heart smiles from the inside out when I hear her laugh uncontrolably when Jaden makes a silly face or noise at her. I giggle when I watch her legs go CRAZY when she sees a spoon full of mushy cereal come her way. I laugh out loud when I see her scoot across the living room floor when she is left alone for 5 minutes. But I wish that someone would just 'check with me' first to make sure I remember all these things. Time goes by too fast ... sometimes it is sweet and sometimes it is bittersweet! *sigh* I guess my mood matches the dreay weather outside - which Jaden promptly told my mom this story while on the phone with her -
*Jaden: "Well it rained all day and it sucked even thought the cows near Dani's house (daycare) really need the rain"
*Me: After realizing what she said "Jaden you aren't supposed to say that word - it is like saying SHIT" ... yeah - good lesson MOM - DUH!
*Jaden: "Well the rain did Suck Mom"
How true you are Jaden ... what a horrible example your mom is huh? Well I am off to meet Jason and Jaden at the Orthopedic Surgeon's Office - hoping we will be returning home with NO more cast!!!
HAVE A GREAT DAY!
Love ~ The Clark Family of Four ~ Rebekah, Jason, Jaden and Baby Charlotte
