Jeez! 6 months old going on 2. Noah is growing so fast. I can’t help but to wonder if Matthew grew this fast. He quite possibly could have but I just can’t remember.
I’m learning that with your first kids, everything is different. He is your first so everything is new to you. You are learning just as much as he is. With each new task he learns, you, as a mom, learn how to process this new step. You learn what foods he can and can’t eat. You know that when he starts crawling that he will most likely be into everything but you don’t actually realize all that that initials until he actually reaches that mile stone. When he starts feeding himself, you also learn what size to cut his food. You get it, with being a mom, you just learn as you go. No matter how many classes you take, nothing quite prepares you for being a mom except for being one. If that makes any sense.
Now, looking back, with my 1st son, my life completely changed. My life kinda slowed down and sped up at the same time. Because I had never experienced this mommy hood thing before, it seemed like it took FOREVER for Matthew to reach his milestones. When in reality, most likely took the appropriate amount of time. It’s just like waiting for your wedding day to arrive. It seems like the days just drag by but, in reality, it took the appropriate time. But before I knew it, my wedding day came and left. Just like Matthew’s 1st year of his life. It went by so fast and now my baby will be turning 4 in just a few days. And with Noah, it ALL is just really fast. Before I knew it, he was rolling over. Next thing, scooting, army crawling, eating cereal, eating solids, then snacks, pulling himself up on things. And now it’s time to start letting him drink from a sippy cup?! And when I walked into his room after his nap today, I found him doing what he was doing in the above picture. I am just amazed how fast his 1st year is going by. I want him to learn as much and as fast as he can but at the same time, I don’t want this time to end. 🙂
