52:50 Spring has Sprung

I Want to Remember 
Spring has Sprung

I want to remember that spring has sprung. Watching you play in the grass for the first time was adorable. At first you just stood there and cried - picking up your foot one at a time. But now, you put your face in the grass and just giggle. We love sitting in the sunshine and watching you take in the world for the first time.

52:49 My Baby You'll Be

I Want to Remember
My Baby You'll Be

I want to remember my baby you'll be. Meaning this, no matter how quickly time is passing. No matter how hectic this time may seem. No matter how messy you are making things. No matter how many times I pick up the tupperware, just to have you take it out again. No matter how many times you will wake me in the middle of the night.  
You will always be my baby. 
Time is passing so quickly. So quickly that my heart aches. As I write this Anniston is running around, talking insanely well, giving you directions and being so....independent. I vividly remember when she was at this age. Getting into everything and making messes and I thought that was busy. I thought that was hectic. This life is busy. And some days its too busy. But it's beautiful. Wildly beautiful. 
And as long as I am living, my babies you'll be.

52:47 Your First Easter

I Want to Remember
Your First Easter 
I want to remember your first Easter. You continue to melt our hearts more and more every day. We went to church in your beautiful Easter dresses, we had a delicious lunch, we opened Easter baskets filled with goodies for you to grab and then we went on an Easter Egg Hunt at Great Grandpa's house! You loved squeezing the eggs to see if they would pop open. You were happy with just two eggs, one for each hand, and you were adamant about not letting them go!
