Goodness gracious it has been a super fast beginning of the year! Can you believe it is almost May!
It is crazy to me, I feel like I blinked and it is almost summer. What is even more crazy is the fact that my son is almost 6 months old-holy crap.
Being a parent has been an amazing ride so far. Boy have I learned A LOT! And I have way more appreciation for my own parents.
I do think that it is interesting that some things that used to bother me, no longer do. Like getting less than 8 hours of sleep and having to work all day or getting pooped on or having spit up on my clothes.
What I think is most encouraging is that my focus has shifted. It is so crazy to me that I created this little guy who is constantly changing and developing and growing. It almost seems surreal.
I try to really immerse myself in every single moment-absorb them. I try to memorize the hairs on his head and the changing color of his eyes. I do not want to miss anything.
Now he is laughing and smiling a bunch, and ya’ll that laugh… it kills me. I almost cry every time-he smiles at me and I smile right back. Lord knows my face was not prepared for all of this smiling, but I sure am grateful.
I make funny sounds, and play airplane, and bouncy, and try to read books in funny voices. I make crazy faces and try my best to walk like a T-Rex-my elbows tucked, fingers extended, a slow and deliberate march.
Just to see him smile…
I have dropped my taking myself seriously routine, and now I am finding my funny bone, and I am loving it.
Amazing isn’t it? Children really are little miracles.
Until next time,
