Tiny Hands

Tiny hands fists closed tight
Tiny dreams held inside
Tiny hands how they’ve grown
Like the babe I used to know

Call me a sap, but while watching Baby Signing Times with my girls and listening to this song, I started to cry.

Sometimes I stare at these tiny hands and just wonder how they ever got so big. Seriously. What happened to my tiny babies? How in the world do I have a 2.5 year old? Or an 8 month old?

Then I start almost hyperventillating thinking about how fast time goes and how I just want it to stop. For one day I want to be able to do nothing but sit and watch them and enjoy them. Which then makes me wonder to myself if I have taken enough time to enjoy them. Sometimes at the end of the day when the girls are sleeping, I realize I didn't. I worried too much. I was crabby way too often. Or I did "my" stuff instead of playing with them.

It is my goal, my desire to take each day and enjoy the little things such as my little ones hands because I truly didn't realize how fast they would grow.


  1. Happy Sunday!!! Stopping by from SITS :)

  2. Happy Sunday Katinka! Thanks for stopping by! :)

  3. I can totally relate to this post. I have been trying so much lately to really just enjoy my babies. (Is an almost 4 y/o still a baby...?) But sometimes I watch them and think, "How can I lose my patience with you so often when you are so very wonderful?" And I feel this tiny little babe roll in my tummy, and look at my 2 treasures and wonder how it's possible that they were once carried within me as well. Time really does fly - sending a prayer your way that you can take some time to slow down and enjoy the ride this coming week! :)

  4. Thanks Lauren! I am going to try and treasure each moment with my girls this week. Even the ones which I don't necessarily "love" as one day I am sure I will miss it.

    Enjoy your week too! :)

  5. Hello my former "tiny hands" baby! Oh my, those years march on...Glad you are enjoying every moment! Love you!

  6. I know exactly what you mean! I always look at my DD tiny hands and wonder how they got so big! I feel like she was just a teeny tiny baby and we just brought her home from the hospital. I try to cherish each and every day because I know they all fly by way too fast!
