These days people are so quick to wish their lives away; can’t wait for the weekend, can’t wait to finish school, can’t wait for my holiday, can’t wait for my baby to sleep through the night.

The Earth has been here for more years than any of us can begin to fathom. We are here for so little time in comparison.

I am making a conscious effort not to wish Amelia’s childhood away. Every time she wakes in the night I don’t think of it as an annoyance or an inconvenience. It’s what baby’s do. Instead I let her snuggle into bed next to me and am grateful that I am that comfort for her.

Every time she smiles I treasure it, equally when she cries I love cuddling her to make it better.

My titchy princess is growing up so quickly already. She’s sitting, eating proper food, trying to crawl, jumping in her jumperoo. As I write this she is asleep on my lap.

So take the time to cuddle them a bit longer, give them that attention they are craving. Because they won’t be small forever.
