|Penny 6 months in her bassinet|
The first night at home, Penny slept next to our bed in her bassinet. Her first hand-me-down from her older brother Thomas. I remember looking at her every breath, just thanking God for yet again another little miracle. For 5 months she would peacefully rest next to us. Trent and I would fall asleep listening to her sweet baby sounds. It was such a good feeling for her to be so close to us.

I took these pictures the other day when I decided it was time to put the bassinet away. It has been sitting empty next to our bed for over 6 weeks. It might sound silly but it took me that long to be ok with taking it down. When I was taking the pictures and explaining to Charlie why we needed to take the bed down, he even got sentimental. I said "Charlie, baby is growing up so fast", and he said to me "I know Mama, she is getting too big".
All these little milestones that Penny is reaching are so exciting and yet they pull at my heartstrings. It makes me sad that my baby is growing up so quickly. I just wish that time would slow down a bit. I want to hold onto each of these moments and cherish even the small things, like a final rest in a sweet little bassinet.
