Jayci, As Promised

See? Sometimes I do keep my promises, even if it IS a day late. Here's a few recent pictures of Jayci, from camp and from our week off. Sometimes I look at her and am shocked by how grown she is. When/how did this happen? My sweet cousin managed to come all the way from Ohio to help me with her at camp this week. But y'all, I don't know what to do because every single time she even sees my cousin (or any nanny we've had at camp) she starts screaming "hold you mommy" and panicking. What do I do about this? I usually just run away as fast as possible, but should I slowly pry her away and talk her through it? Should I stay with her the whole time? I'm lost, for realz.


  1. Is that a little scratch on her nose? awww.. her sweet little face.

    All kids are different on the seperation thing. I've seen so many kids who you think will NEVER leave their mommy's arms & then something snaps & then they're perfectly OK with going to someone else. I hope it gets easier quickly for you both!

  2. mine do that, but then once I am out of sight, they are fine...
    does she do ok once you are away? I bet she is having a blast and she knows you always come back....
    it's never easy when our kids cry for us and we know we have to leave...

  3. She is getting sooooo big and she is just beautiful. Love the pictures!!! :)

  4. Your baby girl is so darn cute! That blond hair....she's beautiful!

    I'm not a momma so I have no good advice for you. But, I will say a prayer for you!

  5. Her hair is SO long! She's adorable!! I've found that calmly explaining to Clover what is going on works best. Like, "Mommy and Daddy are going to go eat dinner and you are going to stay here and play with Grandma for a little bit, then we will be back to get you". Then, when she cries after we leave, I just have whoever is with her explain it again...All kids are different though! Good luck!

  6. Oh Becca, she is absolutely adorable! I can't believe how big she looks in these!

  7. Oh my goodness, she is getting so big! I think it is because he hair is getting longer...she still has that baby face and button nose! She is so very adorable, Becca! And remember, you can't have it adorable child AND a well behaved one. Not-gonnahappen!

  8. Oh my goodness seriously? She is sooooo cute I just can't get over it. I think she and Allie would just be the best of friends - sooo cute!

    Allie is going through the separation thing too and it is horrible! I have no answers for you on how to deal but I sure hope it ends soon.

  9. girl. your pictures are amazing. i love your post processing. its been so much fun to watch your talent evolve!

    and little jayci. wow! she's just beautiful!

    as for separation anxiety, i know it's so tough. i try to prepare addie before hand. we talk about where we are going, who will be there, what she will be doing, and who she'll be with. then at the time, i remind her that i love her and that i'll be back in a little while and how much fun she's going to have doing whatever we've talked about. hug. kiss. short and sweet. and it never fails to rip my heart out every time she cries! but i know she's safe. i know she's going to have fun. and i know it's a necessary part of growing up...for both of us! will be praying it starts to subside and gets easier! us mama's understand!


I LOVE hearing from you. Thank-you for reading and interacting, and being the best!
