Looking Back, Looking Forward

Today Bennett Grace is 4 weeks old! I can't believe how fast time has gone by and how much she has grown over the last 4 weeks. It really hit me yesterday when I was deciding whether or not to buy another pack of newborn diapers or move her up to size 1s*. I know that sounds silly but when she was born even the newborns swallowed her and now she is filling them out. There is just something about demonstrable proof that she is indeed growing up that is bittersweet. I'm so thankful she is healthy and growing the way she should but it is also sad to think of how quickly time goes by and how you never get these moments back. It also comes with the realization that I am half way through my maternity leave and in exactly 4 short weeks I will be apart from her. I hope that I will be able to take some comfort in the fact that she will be staying with her Mimi (Sean's mom) during her summer break. For now, I plan to enjoy the upcoming days and steal as much of her sugars as I can :)

Here are a few pictures from her first four weeks with us showing how much she has changed. I can't wait to see what the future holds for our little family!
