I was noticing lately just how big my babies are getting. It is a little bittersweet as they accomplish new feats, like climbing up play structures at the park and coming down the slides alone. Now, I am there to make sure they don't topple off, or come down head first and to catch them at the end, but they are getting so self-sufficient. Where are my babies? Somehow they have transformed into independent toddlers. I want to gather them into my arms and give them a big enough squeeze to keep them this size. Unfortunately they just squirm off my lap in search of the Next Great Adventure.
