We were hoping to naturally space our children about 2 years apart. With that timing I would probably be pregnant right now. That of course would get my dreaming to an all time high, which (like I said) sometimes makes me miss things.
We feel like we are being called to sibling sets and not newborns. Even though our application will say "0 to whatever" we don't expect to ever have a newborn in our house again. We don't feel like God has asked us to pursue that, if he drops it in our laps that's different. With that we have felt like the firsts we have been able to experience w/ Addilece (crawling, talking, walking, laugh, birthday, etc) will be the only time we have experience them.
Many times as I go through my day spending time with my family I feel this nudge (the Holy Spirit) saying "slow down, don't miss this". I feel like I'm being told to take a minute and take in the things around me. I need to stop and notice whatever adorably cute thing my daughter and usually her Daddy are doing. I store it away in my brain. I might never see some of these cute moments again.
What a blessing it has been to be forced to slow down and soak it all up. I have been able to enjoy my Sweetie Pea for who she is...
Here is one of my slow down moments that I was able to catch on video.
