I have a question for you mommies. Do you spend most of your children’s lives marveling at how fast they grow? Because seriously. I can’t stand how much Elias is growing and changing lately. Every day it is something new. He is babbling more (he especially loves saying dadadadadadadadadadadadadadada), he pretty much likes everything I puree for him (latest fave is pineapples), his bottom teeth are really showing (though I still haven’t been able to get a picture of them) he can sit and play on the floor for long periods and he is even scooting on his tummy a very little bit.
I have been going through my pictures a lot lately as I work on my Big Picture Scrapbooking class. The gallery for the class is going to have more than 50 layouts and most will never have been seen before, so needless to say, I have been scrapbooking a lot. It is amazing to look through my pictures and see how his expresions have stayed the same, yet become more animated. I can’t imagine what it will be like five years from now.
Lately I have been holding Elias tighter. I think a lot of it has to do with Stellan’s story, but a lot also has to do with his growth. I know he is going to be pushing away, wanting run before too long. And while that is exciting, it also makes me sad. Can’t he be a baby for just a little while longer? So tell me – do you ever stop marveling? How do you enjoy all the moments?
