Occasionally I flip through the photos taken in the last near 20 months of the Bean's life and I can't believe it's been less than 2 whole years since she's been born and here she is now - a real person. Attitude, spunk, funnies, and all. I don't remember what life was like without her in it. I don't remember what I did or used to do before I was a mommy to this real, breathing, live human person I gave birth to. As it is one of the hardest things I've known, being a mommy has also been one of the best things in life and I couldn't, wouldn't, trade it for anything in this little world of mine because she is what makes my world a full whole one. This is one of my favorite pictures of her.

I still remember watching her sleep, this tiny little form, wondering in that moment, what I was before her. Here she is now, and I still fall in love with her again and again and again everyday. Yes, she also drives me crazy again and again daily, but that's her job and I wouldn't have it any other way.

And if you're wondering what that concoction of a drink is, it's kale juice. Yep. My kid likes green stuff. - Posted using BlogPress


  1. Jelly Bean drinks kale juice? Way to go, mommy!

    That picture of her as a tiny one makes me long for those days. Gosh, they're just so precious. :)

  2. @The New Mom on the Blog Yep, she drinks kale juice. She's a big greens girl. Now if I can get her off toddler formula, we'd be a little richer every month. Le*sigh.

    I really miss it sometimes. The tiny creature days, but the now is also much more fun and interesting.
