So my little baby has turned into a little walker… Does that mean he’s a toddler now? He’s definitely toddling around and it’s the cutest thing ever, but it also puts a ping in my heart. How is Lennox 17 1/2 months already? How is the little baby who kicked me in my belly and made me laugh hysterically, walking already? I’m sad. I’m really sad. I know that sounds silly and I know it’s an amazing milestone, but it also represents time passing so quickly. I’m so sick of everyone telling me to enjoy these moments because they pass by in a blink of the eye. Everyone is right and frankly, it pisses me off. I don’t know how to say that eloquently, and I really don’t know how to soften it either. On a daily basis people say to soak in every moment, it’s over before you know it. Don’t blink or they’ll be graduating high school. Sometimes it’s just a little bit too much reality for me. I’m not gonna put my head in the sand and pretend my baby’s not growing up, that’s not what I’m saying. I just don’t want to be bombarded with it Every. Single. Day. So maybe next time you want to tell a new mom how fast it goes by, consider that she struggles with that idea. Consider that she knows this information already and she is in the middle of trying to process it in the first place, along with how to be a mother, a good mother. Not bashing anyone who is loving and giving advice- many if you teach me so much, just wanting the shed light on how I’m feeling at the moment. Enjoy your babies. Enjoy every day. It’s an extraordinary gift to be a parent and I’m super honored to be amongst you all.
Have a wonderful day. XO
I love his concentration. 😊
Every time he falls, he gets RIGHT back up. Such a wonderful reminder for all of us. Get right back up!!
“I can do this. I can do this…”
