31 days of blogging// treasuring every moment.

There are so many beautiful things about being  a mama.. One thing is the inspiration of enjoying your today..

I sometimes get so caught up in thoughts about how I'm so looking forward to my piglet talking, and fully walking and all that fun stuff..But in reality I am reminded that once that happens I'm gonna miss the stage that she's in right now. I already miss this stage like crazy.
This journey of being a mama has been the most rewarding journey yet. It's an amazing, hard, and selfless journey and yet, most rewarding. From being a mama I have come to a deeper understanding of God's everlasting and unconditional love for me and it is awesome!

I have learned so much to be content.. To be content, thankful and joyful everyday.. Though there are many days where it's harder to see the things to be joyful for but when Jesus is put first it makes a joyful heart so much more easier to captivate.

I have learned to love "today" And to see and notice the little blessings of today. Because this day will never be again. My daughter will never be this young again but every day she will just get older and older and I'm honestly okay with that. I know sometimes I sigh at the fact of my baby being one in just a month. But honestly it excites me! I would be lying if I told you I didn't want my baby to grow up.. Because growing up is such an exciting journey for the both of us.

If she didn't grow up I think it would be much harder to see and notice the gifts and blessings in every day life. Because for this mama watching my daughter see,touch, feel and experience new things.. you can't put a bigger smile on my face.. It's so rewarding.
For example..
 We gave this pretty girl  Spaghetti for the first time last night and it was a major hit! I just let her feed herself and go for it and man did she!

I think she enjoyed playing with it more than anything but some did make it to her mouth considering her belly was super full when I picked her up!

I'll forever miss My girl extremely tiny and I look forward to her growing up.. But until then.. I think I shall enjoy the now. The present gift, and the blessing of the present. 

                                     Enjoy your Wednesdays ladies!
                                               Love  ya! -  xoxo Heather

I LOVE this post, everything you said is so true. My daughter is 4 months old and sometimes I catch myself saying, "Oh, I can't wait to do this or that with her when she gets older" then I remember how much I already miss her being a little newborn and I try to remember to savor every moment and every step. Motherhood is really a blessing!

Aw she is so precious! Who knew being a mama is so amazingly great and hard at times!? I wish my little guy will stay at the age he is now. Is it crazy that I don't want to start potty training yet, because it will be one less thing he depends on me with? Other then the fear of my furniture and whatever else that may come in contact with this next challenge in this toddler stage! (: Wonderful post! Have a beautiful day!
