Sweet Memories Friday: Quiet Times With Baby #1

Though I love my two girls – both snuggling with them singly and watching them play together – I really treasure the time that I had alone with my toddler back when it was just her and me alone during the day.

(It was … a quieter day!)

When she would wake up, I’d walk upstairs with her cup of milk and my big mug of coffee in preparation for a long morning of reading and playing together. We’d start off by reading a few books on her window seat. With just her in my lap, it was a cozy time for us to bond and read her favorite books (over and over and over again!).

No rushing around, no worrying about laughing or stomping too loud to wake a baby, and no modifying what my dear little toddler wanted to do in order to match what her sister needs. It was simpler and easier, in short.

I certainly wouldn’t trade baby #2, but I just fondly recall the time before she arrived. I hope daughter #1 and I appreciated it enough!

  1. Aw… it’s nice to have some mom and daughter time. Soon baby will grow up and play with her. You will be able to read for both and cuddle with both 🙂 Just can’t guarantee quite times ahead, but they will certainly be beautiful and will continue to build you nice memories. 😊
