Roan's Toes in the Rainbow Wrap

There are times that I can hardly remember the babies that have grown into young children.  Really, as silly as it sounds.  It wasn't that long ago, but it has still escaped me.  If I didn't take pictures and fill in baby books and record it here, I wonder how much I would recall.  I was here for every moment.  There is little that I missed and still, I wish I had taken in more.  Last week, I saw Roan's feet climbing a tree and remembered this picture from when he was so very new and fresh from Heaven.

I feel the same way. The time when William was little and my only child feels like a lifetime ago... and I am sure there is so much about it that escapes my memory.

Yes, we were looking at pictures of Willow when it was just her. Goodness, that seems so long ago.

Same here. I can't even remember baby Miriam! To me, she is still that baby. Gradual change like that, that you are always there for, is unnoticeable and repalced the memories, I think. I have clearer memories of the girls I babysat for (now 20 and 16), because I was NOT there for all the gradual change. I also wish I could slow down with them, and take more pictures.

Sigh. I love baby toes.

I think I have forgotten little baby Laurel, too. You are right about the gradual change.

A Blessed Wilderness

It was just like being in heaven, being in there. In those days there was no road. The park was all a blessed wilderness. I have often thought what a wonderful people we would have been if we had wanted to keep it that way.
