Please don’t let me forget…

-Soft, chubby cheeks.

-The lavender smell of freshly cleaned babies.

-Putting on socks and shoes.


-Crawling, feet-first, down stairs.

-Food in tiny little pieces.

-Sippy cups.

-Sign Language.

-”What sound does an elephant make?” “Pffft.”

-”What sound does a bird make?” “Pbbbbbt.”

-Bedtime lullabies.

-”Hi-ya” and “Buh-Bye”

-Tossing babies into the air.

-Little hands holding my finger.

-Crawling into my lap.

-Standing up in cribs to welcome me in the morning.

-2-hour naps.

-First words.

-First steps.


-Gobbling toes.

-Raspberries on bellies.

-”Sssshhh!” (As TheMonk stalks kitty)

-Two beautiful babies.


  1. I would add to that dancing without music. So what, if anything, would you like to forget?

  2. I’m already starting to miss the food in little pieces as they pick up whole pieces of pizza and dive in.

    How did THAT happen?

  3. You know what the solution to this problem is, right?

    Have another baby!

    Barring that, buy a really good camcorder. ;)

    I miss being able to lay them on the floor with a toy and find them in the EXACT SAME SPOT ten minutes later…

  4. I miss my babies being babies. When they’d grab you and snuggle in when they were tired. When they wipe runny noses on your sleeve… Ok, that one I’d skip.

  5. My fave is standing up in cribs to welcome me in the morning and Mama–Mama–Mama,mama,mama,mama,mama. A very lovely memory.

  6. You make me want another one! Mine are too big at 4 and 5!
