One of the most wonderful parts of this job is watching tiny babies – babies that fit nestled in the crook of their parent’s arm – grow over their first year.

I read somewhere, once, that babies grow more in their first year – relatively – than the will at any time over the course of their lives. That first year is the longest, yet shortest, time; time seems impossibly slow as you’re rocking a baby back to sleep, or waking throughout the night for feedings, or trips back and forth for well child visits – yet you look over when they’re a year old, and there they are – a grown baby! Time is a thief; those first twelve months with my first child seemed impossibly slow and I couldn’t believe when people walking by us during our morning strolls would say “Oh, I forget when mine were that little!”

How could I ever forget what those fingers looked like, when they were constantly wrapped around mine?

How could I forget that face, when I stared at it, gently brushing my hand against his cheek and wondering how it was possible that eyelashes could be that long?

How could I forget how his little legs wrapped around mine, always wanting to be worn on my hip?

And yet here he is, seven years later, with long legs, no front teeth, and a floppy head of light brown hair – barely fitting on my lap, even when curled up in the smallest ball. It’s hard for me to remember what those fingers, those eyelashes, those legs once were.
