Since the day she was born, me and my little Z have been inseparable. She’s incredibly attached to me and repeatedly chooses me over her daddy. I soak up every ounce of love she throws my way. She is always by my side, in my lap, or sleeping next to me. She currently is sitting in my lap as I type this out! So with my newest baby’s birth fast approaching, all I could think about was how I would handle two babies in my arms or at my side?

Last weekend we were able to celebrate our little guy’s first birthday with all of our family and friend in vintage baseball fashion. I worried that the party would be stressful and I wouldn’t be able to fully enjoy it but it was totally a breeze. We had hotdogs, cracker jacks, and lots of fun! Here are some of our photos from the big day!

When my little girl came home from the hospital I just wanted to hold her and keep her warm. I knew that in the blink of an eye she’d be all grown up, worrying about her hair and fashion trends. Now, just 16 months in, I watch day Jada enjoy her first purse and it’s the cutest thing I have ever seen. If only her purse could always stay this clutter-free.

This month, Elvie turned two, and while she still retains some babyish habits, I have to admit that our baby days are over. We are full on into toddlerhood and all that lies beyond. Most days, I can’t believe that it all flew by so quickly. I look back at the photos from the beginning, and I compare them to the little girl who is sprawling out on my bed in the morning, taking over my entire pillow, and I think, “Impossible!” But of course it is not impossible, and I have records in so many places that it wasn’t all just a very fast-moving dream. One of the reasons, among many others, that I have loved writing for the Disney Baby blog is that I have been able to record our special moments with Elvie one more place, to share her amazing story with even more people. But now those days have come to a close. My farewell to Elvie’s babyhood also means a farewell to the Disney Baby blog.

In the 18 months that she’s been here with me, we’ve shared many things. Blueberries, Cheerios, and even a couple of colds. Long before her arrival, we had already shared so much. In those quiet moments when it was just the two of us, I often shared with her my innermost thoughts. She knew my dreams, my hopes and my fears. She knew that the idea of being a mama of two terrified me and filled my heart with immense joy all at the same time.
See, time had given us a chance to get really good at this sharing thing. But eventually, time also lent itself to the realization that some things aren’t shared so easily, particularly if you’re an 18-month-old.
Today, our present is filled with the word mine. “Mine,” she will say as her eyebrows burrow and her grip tightens. “Mine!”
