It’s T I M E For A New Adventure

My baby seems to be growing at the speed of light. Doesn’t time go by so quickly? If only we could stop it, just for a few seconds, to really soak in those amazing moments.

It’s funny, there are occasions when you wish it away, say there’s an upcoming event in the calendar. Yet there are days when you just want it to stop. You want to be held and suspended in midair, in that moment, forever.

Sweet Dreams with Little Blue Nest

Arlo’s room is looking great, it’s just missing some final touches. I’m on the look out for storage baskets and a couple of prints. I’ve also been searching for bedding.
