Little or Big?

How can my baby girl be so little and so big at the same time?

She looks tiny, with her little legs and drippy half-undone curls...

but holds her own on a big stool at the grown-up table...

with jelly all over her butterfly cracker eating face.

Some days I feel like time is going too quickly, as I'm sure most moms feel from time to time. But when I really take a moment to sit with it, I don't feel sad - I feel excited. Will I miss their baby-ness? I already do - but we have so much to look forward to. Tomorrow. Next week. Next year. I sit with it TODAY and feel my heart swell.
