Being a mum is such an amazing thing and I wouldn't change it for the world but it is very, very bittersweet. You go through pregnancy imaging yourself with a tiny baby at the end of it but no one really explains just how quickly that baby starts to support themselves and how quickly they want independence. How they change and grow before your eyes and even though you love every second you can't help but want to freeze time and just watch them for that extra second longer, just to soak it up that little bit longer.
As a mum you love watching your baby develop and learn new things but you also wish they'd slow down a little too. As they grow you start to miss the newborn days, the days when they would fall asleep on you and the days when they didn't answer no to every one of your questions.
Paige turns two in a matter of weeks, 17 days to be precise. 17 days until my baby is two. 17! How did that happen?
I want to remember Paige just as she is now... sweet, cheeky, a terror at times, an only child, a 1 year old, my baby.
