Being a mom is exhausting. I have a new found respect for those that have several little ones running around, seriously how do you do it? Last year I got the tree up and all the Christmas decorations done in just a couple of hours. This year - WHOLE NEW STORY! Granted, I have a bunch more stuff this year thanks to Josh bringing me some hand me downs from Mom, and a box of stuff from Chet's Aunt but it still took me a week to get things organized this year. Thanks to the crafty genius of my Grandmother most of the cute decorations are from her! Now that I am done putting everything in place....wait, I am not done! The porch lights aren't up and I have to dig out the extension cords! But so far things look great but that took way to long to get done. Reagan and I did get the ornaments on the tree during the bedlam game (read: OSU domination over OU) and we had fun cheering and decorating. Well I had fun and she stared at the tree, hypnotized by the lights.

So time is flying... zooming right along. I catch myself thinking "remember when Reagan was first born and she would...." or "remember during my maternity leave when.." because so much time has already passed and those moments seem so long ago! Today she is 15 weeks old! By Christmas eve she will be 4 months old, how can that be? How can 4 months have already gone by?!?! It seems so impossible, but sure enough, she is a growing girl!
It is a wonderful thing to love your daughter so much that you lose track of time. And to think of it, Mommy minutes are the best way I can spend my time. I keep telling myself, take more pictures, do a family video because she will only be this small for so long! So as the mommy minutes go speeding along I can capture them with images to last my lifetime.
