A petition

Dear God,

I would like to file a complaint on one small item in your glorious plan of creation.

I just don't think that this:



should be allowed to become this:




in one short year.

I'm not certain our hearts are strong enough to take it. Mine, for example, feels as if it might crack in two today. Surely we could slow things down just a bit?

Top notch job on those baby cheeks though. Could be your best work ever.

Lots of love,

Chaotic Joy

Happy Birthday to my sweet and spicy baby girl. Please don't grow too fast.

Happy Birthday Clara. Joy... she is absolutely adorable. I agree... it goes by WAY too fast. It seems we don't even have time to catch our breath.

I second that. Although the top of soft baby heads may give those cheeks a run for their money.

Happy Birthday, Clara!

Ain't it the truth? After all these babies, I am still shocked when a year ticks by and they go from squishy little babies to independent toddlers!

Enjoying your blog--loved the BlogHer post--too cute! I'm enjoying perusing your posts while having a quiet moment!

Blessings!
