Little Moments To Remember

Last night Lilypad Princess and I had a routine night; a little playing in the backyard, a walk with her bike, dinner, and then a popsicle out on the front steps. It wasn't a special night but as we were sitting there and she was telling me a story about the moon and the bats. As the conversation went on, it suddenly hit me, this was my little baby telling me a story in full sentences, remembering facts that she has learned before like the bats eating mosquitos, and she suddenly seemed so grown up. After the story was done, she used the steps as a stage to sing to me, a new song that she made up about the moon to the tune of Twinkle Twinkle Little Star. That normal moment has now become one imprinted on my mind that I will remember forever.

That is so sweet.
I can't wait for moments like that with our little girl, but I am trying to cherish her newborn moments too because I know they will go by so quickly!
