Don't Wanna Grow Up

I've decided that Ayden Michelle can never grow up!!!

I don't know if I've been a parent long enough to relax and enjoy it a little bit more (it was slow going there at first) or if she really is just that darn sweet!! I almost can't stand it sometimes. I want to pull out the video camera and catch her every little move.

The way she runs down the hall chasing after her brother and sister.

The way she sruntches up her little face when she is not pleased.

The way she pouts and slaps her hands on her knees as if she just can't take anymore.

Aw!! I feel like she's someones else's child I enjoy her so much (most of the time :)

Today I said "Ayden you cannot grow up. Say ok mommy!" She scruntched her face up because she's two and of course she doesn't want to do anything mommy says without a fight. I said, "say ok mommy". With her face still scruntched up she said (in her whiny voice) "o-tay mommy." How will I ever remember that!!! I won't and it makes me sad!!!

Or the way she puts her face against one side of your face and then the other before she gives her good night kiss!!

or the way she says, "cuse me mommy, cuse me mommy, cuse me mommy, cuse me mommy" until the attempt at saying excuse me not to interrupt is pointless :)

She has so much personality in her little bitty body! It is just hilarious and I love her so!!!

i'm feeling you on wondering how we will remember all the cute things about our children. but, you will remember b/c you have written it in your blog. all you have to do is go back and read it. having the twins makes me think about halley was like as a baby...there is so much that i have forgotten. i wish i had written more stuff down. so my encouragement to both of us is to write it down. even the other week when eddie and i were having such a great week, you said, "did you write about it in your journal?" so, we need to write more about the good things.
i love the way you described how ayden gives kisses! how sweet!
and thanks for posting that pic of brie...ahh, another memory!

She is adorable... You're going to remember it, because you're writing it down right here!! But, I know what you mean.

Right now, I'm in the process of copying and pasting my blog into a photo book on Snapfish.com. It's taking a while, but I'm going to be so glad to have all of those memories on hand. You should do it!
