Hello again, I thought it was about time I poured my heart out to y’all. Joy is growing so quickly. Everyone says it flies by but that doesn’t even begin to describe what’s happening. I feel like I barely have time to get my camera out to capture a milestone before she has moved on to bigger and better things. For example, I don’t think I remember the first time she pushed up on all fours, yet here she is trying to crawl. She does this adorable lunge forward, falls on her face, lifts ups again and giggles. She will do that until she gets to where she’s going. I just sit there in awe as she wrecks my living room by pulling out her toys that are seemingly accessible now. Do you ever get scared? Scared that she won’t need you sooner than you expected. I know that is completely irrational considering I have the milk, I’m her mother, and she’s not even six months old, but sometime I see her accomplish these little things, and I can already hear “Mom, I’ve got it” or the “I don’t need your help anymore” and it kind of break my heart. I look around at all my friend’s kids and think to myself, I remember when you were born. Now they are walking, talking, and eating real food. Don’t get me wrong, I’m excited to see her grow and flourish, just not yet. Is it normal for you to want your baby to stay small forever. I’m sure this feeling will only intensify.
This post was just a little poll to see if I was crazy or not. Does this resonate with anyone else? What were some of your fears around this age? Any baby proofing tips?
