last night, when I sat down to feed the baby again...

Him: Didn't you just barely feed her?

Me: More or less. She ate two-and-a-half hours ago.

Him: Wow. That went fast.


I couldn't agree with him more. I feel like I've entered a zone where time is accelerated—no, not accelerated, just radically altered.

For instance, I know exactly how many days this baby has been alive (29), and exactly how many days until my brother comes home from a two-year mission in India (only 2 now!). But my mom has often had to tell me what day it is when she's come to see how I'm doing. And I failed to wish some important people happy birthday—not because I forgot their birthdays, but because I failed to really grasp that it was April until 3:30 this morning. Hello, folks—we're almost halfway through the month.

She looks so harmless. Who knew she was capable of bending time?

So true. From now on, any guess of the day of the week within 3 days is correct, and any guess of the date at all is admirable.

I love my niece soooo much!

Haha! I can so relate. And, I certainly felt like that too. As soon as I was done nursing, it was nearly time to start again...

HA! I can totally relate. There is a world of difference between 2 hours between feedings and 3. And then 4.

Oh my, the time warp only continues. Honestly, I have no idea what happened to the last 15 months of my life. It seems like just yesterday I had this tiny baby . . .

It is true. From my perspective, it doesn't seem that long ago for my kids. Now one is a new parent, one got married, one came home from a mission, one is graduating from high school, one just got her driver's license, and one just started going to young women's! And it is all just a few blinks of the eye away. Amazing.
