Project Running

I know it has been quite a while but I've been busy making these:

In Dutch there stands "Huray Bryndís" its for my youngest daughter who will turn 1 on thursday already! I feel a little bit sad about it thinking this would probably be the last baby in our house. Its hard saying goodbye to those wonderful baby-years. I'll really miss it. Often I hear people saying that they prefer toddlers or more older children even. And I for one was never that baby loving or even children loving if I may add. But since I have my own children I honestly can say there is nothing in the world more special than (your own) children. They are the joy of my life, the once I stand up for in the middle of the night, for whom else would you do that with such love and care? As they grow up and their own little personality starts to devolpe and grow its really fun and special to be a main part of their existince in the world. It something quite wonderous to be a witness of that proces they go through such close by. Everybody who is a parent would have the same feeling, that it is something to cherish.

I'll miss carrying a baby in my arms, cuddle with the thick arms and legs, blow in their bellies so they will giggle out loud and their thoothless mouth will open and their baby eyes will shine. I'll miss that little hand searching for a piece of my sweater, pants or anything else to hold so they can stand, lean or just seek comfort with. I'll miss those first kisses that aren't really kisses but more an open mouth and a wet tongue in search for something to nibble on. I'll miss all these careless babystuf, that you just can comfort them by picking them up and rock them, walk them around, cuddle their little body.

Now the 'real' problems are starting to come. How to deal with this big wide world? How to walk on the sidewalk, the challenge of the play-yard and how to speak to strangers?

So, while sewing these flags I had a lot in my mind. Of course I'm happy she is turning one and she is in such good health and such a joyfull girl she is. I'm very proud of my little girl. But as a mother I wish I could be forever a one, three or even a ten month old-baby-mommy.
