As a new mom, the number one advice I've been given is to cherish all of these little moments because they'll fly by. I think I'm starting to get it and see just how quickly time passes.
As my mom always says, "Time waits for no one." It seems like just yesterday I brought Caleb home from the hospital and all he did was sleep. Now, I'm missing those precious moments where it seemed as if the world had stopped moving and the clock, too.
In fact, just a couple of weeks ago, I got sad as I started putting away his newborn outfits. Clearly, at four months old he has outgrown them. I can't help but ask where did the time go?
Everyday I start to see more of a little boy and less of a little baby. He laughs at mommy and daddy now. He enjoys flying like an airplane. He sits up. He grabs things. He moves around... a lot!
Before I know it, he'll be starting school. Wow!
I'm trying my hardest to live in each and every moment. I want so badly to remember this time. I want to remember the sound of his laughs, the way he smiles when he sleeps, how tightly he grasps my finger and the sound of him breathing when I hold him for a nap (sorry, but sometimes I don't put him in his crib).
Is it crazy that I'm already missing him as a baby even though he is still a baby?!
