1. I’m finally realizing this with my current newborn too. It really *does* pass fast! Consider yourself lucky that your daughter calms down when she is with you, my baby cries when I’m not with him, and cries when I’m holding him, too! 😉

  2. Ouiz, my baby is now 2 1/2 and I don’t know if there will be another…I hate that, I want him to be one month old again, it’s so hard. Praying that you find your peace with these thoughts, I’m still trying to! Hugs!

  3. I agree! Although it was hard to take care of other kids sometimes, I always enjoyed holding M. I think once they hit about 3 months they get much easier too. (Plus after I gave up dairy products she was like a different kid!)

  4. Thank you, everyone!

    I’m glad I’ve “chilled out” a bit with Grace, but the thought that she might be the last has really hit me hard. Since we’ve had children basically every 15 mths to 2 yrs since I was 30, I just assumed that it would always be that way… but now I’m realizing that “t’aint necessarily so.” I’m not even promised tomorrow, let alone the possibility of having another child.

    So, for now, I will just enjoy her infancy and cherish all that I can.
