New Tricks

Is it just me or does this happen to everyone? Every time Sadie does something new I am amazed at what she has learned to do, but equally so that I don't remember being that awed when Dylan had learned to do the same thing. Maybe it is because he is still doing new things everyday, like sharing thoughts and concepts that I can't fathom how he figured out, so high-fiving and clapping seem trivial. It could be that I feel more seasoned with this second child and not being so overwhelmed by motherhood is allowing me to enjoy every detail more than I was able to the first time. Or do they really just grow up so fast that you forget, as everyone says will happen. That must be it because even Sadie's short history fades from memory as she becomes more and more her own little person and less of a helpless infant. I will just continue to enjoy each moment of watching my children grow and learn, all the while keeping in mind the most important part: what amazing people both of them are becoming. I hope you enjoy this little clip of Sadie's newest tricks!

So cute... she is growing up so fast. I agree that the memories of more "trivial" things tend to fade but then there are those moments that are burned into your mind forever that seem even less important than even the "trivial" things. Do you know what I mean?
