I’m Experiencing Baby-itis

I’m experiencing baby-itis.

You know, when you wish you could hold your children as babies one more time.


When you wonder if you took enough pictures and video.

When you can see their baby features slowly melt away.

When you sigh heavily when you pass the newborn clothes at the store.


When you wonder how they went from smiling infants to cranky preschoolers.


To watch them run past you and want to hang out with kids instead of you.


To listen to their conversations get more detailed.


To see them grow into people instead of the darling little infants they once were.


Do I want to have another baby? No.

Sometimes, I just want the babies I used to have back, for just a few minutes.

No one ever tells you how bittersweet watching your kids growing up can be.
