Where are you going, my little one?

Saturday, May 2, 2009

Where are you going, my little one, little one.
Where are you going, my baby, my own.
Turn around and you're tiny,
Turn around and you're grown,
Turn around and you're a young wife, with babes of your own.
Where have they gone
My little ones, little ones
Where have they gone
My babies, my own
Turn around and they’re young
Turn around and they’re old
Turn around and they’re gone
And we’ve no one to hold

That is a song that I grew up with my mom singing to me. We had it sung at my wedding, and now I'm starting to sing it to my babies. I don't know where the time is going, but my baby is now able to climb the ladder to their jungle gym. My other baby is riding her tricycle around the block at what seems to be breakneck speeds. I don't know if I can handle this... Thank goodness we have another little one on the way!

Of course, about 2 seconds after I took this picture, she fell off because she was taking a corner too fast. So, yes, Auntie Jenna we are getting her a helmet tomorrow :)

glad to hear you're getting her a helmet- we only need one brain injured member in our family and rori is too pretty to be brain injured!

I know - they get so big so fast! I'm so glad I have Carter now too, but he's already getting up on his hands and knees at 5 months old!!!! What?! It goes way too fast. You are so good about taking picture of all the little moments that are so exciting - I need to work on that one. We're praying for Juliana and her parents too! Keep us posted!
