Well I haven't been on as much as I'd like to be because I have been finding it hard to come to terms with something; DD turning 1. Yes, my beautiful little sweetheart turned 1 yesterday and I spent a good part of Sunday night crying into DFs arms, much to his amusement.
It's weird, we had the party on Saturday and it was a wonderful day; full of love and laughter but it really hit me on Sunday once all the excitement was leaving.
I'm not sure if it is the depression or anxiety, but the thought of her having a birthday and, well, time already leaves us as quick as it goes, the thought of her leaving home, or even leaving for school or kindy in just a couple of years just made me a mess.
Please tell me I'm not the only one? Has anyone else cried at their little one growing up right before their eyes?

No youre not the only one, my babies are 9 and 6
I can't believe that this year my little man started kindy and next year (shock horror) my little girl will be double digits (10)
I just try to enjoy each and every day with them because they do grow up too quickly.

We went to an open day last week for DS kindy and I bawled the whole time! ( DS is only 20 months !)

I understand that feeling of being so sad they are growing up, I really do.
On the upside though, from 1 year onwards they just get SO much cuter, and can communicate more with you.

Try being pregnant in the bargain and you've got a big emotional mess on your hands .
DD turns 2 in a few weeks and I often look at her and wonder where the time went. She's growing up too fast!!! But on the other hand, she is just so damn cute and getting cuter by the day. I love watching her grow and change and watching her learn new things. We just have to treasure the time we have with them.

I was a bit upset when my daughter turned 3 as I wondered where the time went!

My oldest (nearly 2.5) went into her big girl bed on Sunday. I was watching her sleep in it last night and cried - she is growing up way too fast and I've often thought that one day she'll start school, she'll graduate, she'll have her heart broken, she'll fall in love, she'll get married, she'll have kids and it makes me all emotional!
And DD2 turns 1 in August! *sniff, sniff*
