Summer is fading

Summer is fading quickly. The days are shorter, the nights are cooler and there is a smell in the air that warns us that winter is right around the corner.

Every time I put a sweet little sundress on Peanut, I am reminded that this will be the last time she'll wear it. It'll be packed away to be worn by a future daughter, niece or cousin. But not by my not-so-little Peanut. She's growing and changing, just like the seasons.

And it makes me sad.

But it also makes me happy. I know that just around the corner is another season of growth and change for sweet Peanut. She will enter yet another stage that her Daddy and I will adore even more than the one she is in now.

"To every thing there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the heaven" Ecclesiastes 3:1


  1. Precious! Isn't every day the very best day with your baby? I've thought so many times that if I could keep my little boy at one age, this would be it...and then I think the same thing a week later. Time is fleeting, but love is unfailing!

  2. It is sad to look at them and know they are growing and that something you love now will go away soon. But I do agree that just around the corner there will be new and exciting things happening!

  3. This is such a beautiful post! I love the pictures. I can't believe it is almost autumn!!
