Lesson #26: It still goes so fast

on October 26, 2014

Someone told me that I would get a “prolonged” infant phase with Tessa.  I was assured that I would have more time to enjoy each stage because it would take longer for her to grow up.  And I’m sitting here today wondering who that person was, because they lied to me and I want to find them and tell them.
