They Grow Up So Fast

Daniel-Wellington-Watch-Review-Baby-MomI’m sure you’ve heard the phrase, “they grow up so fast” a billion times. I, myself, have said it repeatedly since we had our first born. But it wasn’t until recently that this statement really hit home.

While looking over a roll of photos from a recent trip to the happiest place on Earth, Disneyland; I stopped everything I was doing and stared at this photo for a good fifteen minutes. In complete disbelief, I began to question why our little kindergartner looked so grown up here. Isn’t it interesting that as parents we see our kids daily yet we can’t grasp just how fast they’re really growing physically?Kids-black-halloween-sweater-ghost-taty-kids

According to KidsHealth.org, children grow the fastest during their first year.  “After age 1, a baby’s growth in length slows considerably, and by 2 years, growth in height usually continues at a fairly steady rate of approximately 2½ inches (6 centimeters) per year until adolescence. Weeks or months of slightly slower growth alternate with mini “growth spurts.” And interestingly enough, “Kids actually tend to grow a bit faster in the spring than during other times of the year!” So I guess Mia had that growth spurt this past Spring.

I wish I could keep both of our little ones little forever. Perhaps we could somehow invent a way to just freeze time? In the meantime, we’ll just be trying our best to create as many memories with our girls as they grow up.             

And speaking of time, this Daniel Wellington watch will not be coming off of my hand anytime soon. It’s now one of my favorite timeless wardrobe pieces. This classic style is part of Daniel Wellington’s Sheffield Collection.Daniel-Wellington-Watch-Disneyland-Walt Disney-Mickey Mouse-castle

Currently loving their salted caramel, black cherry, oatmeal cookie, cookies n cream and chocolate mocha chip. Oh and s'mores...ok, seriously though, way too many to pick just one. 😋What's your fav???

  • As a kid growing up in Southern CA, I vividly remember all our yearly summer trips to Disneyland. But one memory that really stands out from the rest was watching the Electrical Parade on Main Street. And now that @disneyland brought it back, it's been unreal watching it with my two littles. I can't even tell you how magical🌈 but I can show ya. Check out our stories. 🤗 We keep replaying it over here. 🤣
