Slow down, don't grow so fast.


Today is B&W Wednesday over at The Long Road to China, click on over and check out some fantastic shots and add your favourite.
As I look at some of the pictures I've taken of the monkeys lately I can hardly wrap my head(and my heart) at just how much they are growing. I sometimes wish I could stop the clock, slow them down, then there are the moments I can hardly wait to see the bloom and blossom. To see what wonderful women, Mother and wives I know they'll be.
For know my sweet girls, slow down, don't grow so fast...

Oh the rate at which our children grow is amazing! I sometimes want to just stay awake for days to sit and watch each moment. Ahhhh!

Ugh, I understand exactly what you mean. I want my kiddos to slow down too!!! But I guess growth is inevitable. What beautiful girls you have, and great photos! I love the posing in the second shot...what a little model :)

Oh I know exactly how you feel...I find myself every.single.day. asking/questioning/wanting to stop the clock or turn back time but as my mom is always telling me...you want to see your children blossom & grow ~ that is the pure beauty of parenthood...At times I do agree but there are those moments I want time to stand still just a little bit longer...

And before I forget - LOVE the B&WS!

I completely understand what you wrote... I would love to stop my little girl from growing up. I love where she is right now, but she just wants to keep growing. The photos are beautiful. The lighting in the first one is simply gorgeous.

I love them. They are gorgeous girls. They so grow up way to fast..

Dita said...

I know the feeling well.....I am often caught in the same conundrum with my two lovelies.....stay little, no grow up, no stay little, no grow up!

I think I'll stick with stay little for now!

Happy BW!

If only they could stay little for longer! Only each new stage is so amazing too!

Vivian M said...

I know! I agree! I tell Kerri all the time, but she is not listening to me. Right this minute she is stomping around the living room in her princess plastic toy high heel shoes. Sigh.

Jonni said...

Jonni

As a mom to my own two girls, I know exactly what you mean. I was just looking at last years blog posts and can't believe how much my girls have changed.

If you listen to country music there is a song by Trace Adkins called, "You're gonna miss this."

Makes me cry eveytime.

Lovely!
