Elliot Emily Life


Just lights up my life.
Look at his little arms and legs. You forget about how they have to so gradually learn to work their appendages. You forget how darling they look in just a onsie. You forget how their breath smells like milk. You forget how much your heart just grows by leaps and bounds. You forget how their little eyes just make your heart melt. You forget how much you hate to use those silly blue blooper things to get boggies out of their noses. You forget how pure and peaceful they look, even when they are so little. You forget how your nearly have a heart attack when you wake up in the middle of the night, and realize they’ve slept longer than usual, and you begin to worry if they are alright, and race to their crib. And they are a-okay.

You just forget. And when you remember, you want them to stay itty-bitty for forever. BUT IT JUST DOESN’T HAPPEN.
