Babies arrive all tiny, squishy, new and so very dependent on their people for everything. We hold them and stare in disbelief. They stay awake half the night and we wonder when morning will come. We blink and they are smiling at us. We are tired and blissfully happy and we find our routine. Sleep, eat, diaper, play, repeat. Doctors visits and new outfits to wear. Baby gear all around the home, gifts and visitors galore. And then they are sitting up. Just like that they look a little bit more like “big babies” and they even seem to have opinions about things, like their favorite blanket or how they like to nap. The season changes and then, one day, we look down and they aren’t in the same place we put them moments ago. Our baby is now mobile! How quickly that happened. We baby proof and gate the stairs and put up the dog food. A few more sleeps and then they are standing, looking at us across the room. “Mama” is emerging and food is being eaten. And just like that we are planning a first birthday, lowering the crib mattress and buying walking shoes. Our baby, in just 12 short months, has become a toddler – a tiny person! We look back at those first few days with awe and wonder…how did it go by so fast?
I see it so often now, with my tiny baby planner clients. They arrive all pink and new, with their tiny bird mouths and tiny cries. And then a few short months later, they return smiling, full of love when their parent comes into view. They come back a few months later and they are sitting, pulling up and their personalities are emerging. Their parents have sweet stories to tell about all the funny things they are doing now. And then, in what seems like an instant, we are planning their final baby planner session and they arrive looking so much more like a toddler than a baby, talking a little and laughing as they shove cake in their mouth or as they read their favorite book. And every time I am amazed at just how fast life moves. It is a swift pace, indeed.
Here are a few of the littlest khp clients that have come to visit me recently. I adore each one and their families!
