(I Miss) the Scent of a Newborn

Challenge 41 at Journaling Junkie asks us to write about something we miss. I knew right away that I wanted to journal Alyssa's growing up and I felt that this was perfect to record how I feel about it.

Truly, I do miss having a newborn in the house. I feel that Alyssa has always been wanting to keep up with her older sisters. She thinks she's big already like them. She likes to eat their food and watch their movies and play with their toys. She thinks she's not a baby anymore, much to my dismay. She will always be my baby.


Title: (I Miss) the Scent of a Newborn

Hidden Journaling: I can't believe you are already a year old! You insist on doing big girl things like eating chips, watching movies and playing with small toys. I miss my baby! I miss the times when your whole world revolved around me, when you relied on me solely for comfort and nourishment. You are slowly growing up and I'm learning to let go. But no matter how big you become or how tall you grow, you will always be my baby.

Hi Bjay! I used the Bazzil scalloped edges for the red paper and then I cut the Sassafraslass papers to follow the scallops. :-)

Hi Jona! Alyssa is starting to smell like that too. Hahaha!
