Does anyone else get overwhelmed with trying to capture every memory? Maybe it's a new mom/first-time parent thing? But I feel like I can't put my camera down or step away from the baby book because I might forget to write something down. The days go by so fast and Hannah is changing so much every day. I always want to remember her just as she is now. Since I can't slow down time, I feel like I need to capture it all! What an overwhelming task! Sometimes I feel like I can't even enjoy the here and now because I'm too busy trying to remember it...does that even make sense?
Maybe this all stems from my horrible long-term memory (and short-term for that matter). For some reason I cannot remember much from my childhood or even my teenage years. I barely remember even going to High School! Yikes! I guess in an attempt to not have the same thing happen to Hannah, I am overcompensating.
When I think about Hannah growing up, it makes me so sad. I want her to always be my little baby. As I picture her life flashing by, it breaks my heart! SLOW DOWN! I'm sure I am overreacting a bit, but you always hear how fast life goes when you have kids, so I just want to be sure to capture it all!
