Bittersweet Day

Today was a bittersweet day at work. Two of my favorite babes from my room transitioned to the big kid room. This is always a tough time for me, I get SO attached to them and then before I know it, they are moved to another room! It is very bittersweet because while I know they are always so ready to move up and be in a room that really fosters their development better than the infant room can, it makes me so sad to see them and their families go. It is also bittersweet when they do so well, it almost makes me want to say HEY! You can at least act a LITTLE sad to go! :) I am happy that they are both doing so well, as I knew they would!

I think it also was a little more emotional for me, knowing how fast the little ones grow and how fast that first year goes, it reminds me of how important it is to cherish those small moments and not take anything for granted. This is a good lesson to be learned in preparation for Baby S' arrival. I almost got teary eyed when one of the parents was saying their goodbyes and it makes me a little sad to think that in about a year or so, I will be that parent saying goodbye to my child.

On a happier note, Baby S has started to be quite the mischievous little one! At work today, we were having a low key today and I was leaning against a bookshelf, and we have this book that makes quacking noises and so I put it against my stomach and before I knew it, Baby S was kicking at it! She also has begun to kick at items that are placed against my stomach, she hasn't kicked anything off yet, but I am sure that will come soon!
