“You are the bows from which your children as living arrows are sent forth”
One of my favourite songs is a song by Taylor Swift called ‘Never Grow Up’.
And it’s so quiet in the world tonight
Your little eyelids flutter cause you’re dreaming
So I tuck you in and turn on your favorite nightlight
You got nothing to regret
I’d give all I have honey
If you could stay like that
Just stay this little
Oh darling don’t you ever grow up, don’t you ever grow up
It could stay this simple
I won’t let nobody hurt you
Won’t let no one break your heart
No one will desert you
Just try to never grow up
Never grow up
Every time I hear it, it brings tears to my eyes, as it reminds me that time passes by so quickly, and sometimes I can see my babies grow in leaps and bounds right in front of me.
Mason, being the youngest has always been very much ‘the baby’. I think because of his delay in talking, and the fact that he is fussed over by everyone.
These last few weeks I’ve really noticed that he really isn’t a baby anymore. When Izzie and Ollie play, now he joins sin – he can be found wielding a light sabre with the best of them. He does however still like his naps.
As I’ve not been around here for a while I thought I would share a few photos of him that made me double take at how big he had gotten when we were on holiday.
He will always be my baby though.
