not a newborn

Really, is there much sweeter than footie jammies?
Jayson and I both melt at the sight of them. 

I packed up Embers newborn clothes and gave away the last of her 
newborn diapers. 
Is my baby not a newborn anymore.

she is not.

I remember with Ty packing up every stage was hard for me.
When I packed up newborns I bawled and bawled thinking my little man
was never going to wear these clothes again.

I thought I had prepared myself for packing up Embers things.
but as I folded her tiny clothes up I got 
more and more emotional.
When I got to her outfit she came home in....
thats when I lost it. 

I remembered the feeling I had when dressing her for the first time.
The moment I saw her in her first bow.

I thought about the way I use to have to cradle her so gently.
The way she could barley open her eyes. 

My baby is still a baby.
She is still so tiny.
but she is no longer my newborn.

  "I'll love you forever, I'll like you for always, as long as I'm living my baby you'll be."

My baby will always be my baby.
