I want my baby back, baby back, baby back ...

I was organizing our recent batch of photos into folders to make it easier to scroll through all 2 million of them and I noticed this one:
Aside from the complete silliness of it (and the fact that YES, my toddler still uses a pacifier sometimes at night and YES, her lovies "The Evelyns" are disgusting and need a bath), I was struck by just how much she's changed in just over a year.

Obviously, we've seen this gradual change happening right before our eyes, but when compared side to side... It makes this Mama want to start crying and clutching Ma' Babee to my bosom. I mean come on! Her little toes don't even reach halfway down the tub and now?!? She has to fold her squishy legs into the stupid thing.

She is literally transforming into a new, complete and total person every. single. day. It's so funny to Casey and I because, we often talk about the fact that we don't just want "another baby". We want this baby:
To stay small and snugly forever and always. I'm sure it'll be totally normal to still have her attached to my apron strings at 35, right? Nevermind. Don't answer that.
