This was the second layout I did for the sketch, flipping it horizontally. These are last year pics of Audrey. It still shocks me each day how big she's getting. With Caitlyn it just seemed so regular, I was expecting her to get bigger, but I guess since Audrey is my 'baby' I still have a hard time with her growing taller and becoming more like her big sister. She's in Cait's clothes from last year and it was so bittersweet that she fit in some of them perfectly. I think it's interesting that with Caitlyn I enjoy each stage yet am excited to see how she grows into a little girl. Even now I get excited for each new birthday for Caitlyn and can't wait to see what talents she developes, what kinds of clothes she'll pick out, books she'll want to read, etc. With Audrey I wish more I could stop time and keep her as my small snuggly little tot. The other day she snuck out and fell asleep in the hall. When I picked her up I actually thought she was Caitlyn and it wasn't until I got to Caitie's bed that I realized it was Audrey. It made me think about how similar they are and that I need to let her spread her wings too. I encourage so much independence with Caitlyn. Everything with her is 'you can do it' or at the very least 'keep trying'. With Audrey I instantly do things for her instead of letting her try them for herself and I need to let her be more independent just like I did with Cait. Anyway, that was my own little insightful mommy moment this last week, lol. Enjoy the layout and have a great weekend!
