Y’all. I just woke up and my newborn is almost 6 months and my 18 month old is turning two this weekend. T W O. What in the world? Surely I blacked out for a few months? How has the time flown by that fast? Hampton’s first year flew by, but his second? It has been even faster. My baby girl is on the verge of crawling and my tiny Hamp is turning two. He is now longer my baby. He is a toddler on his way to big boy land. I wish it would all slow down. I wish the days would seem like actual full days instead of an hour or two divided by a nap. I feel like I’m being robbed of their baby years, yet, I’m right here! I’m right by their side 24/7.
The older I get, the more I realize what truly matters in life. Family matters. Our little family of four is my world. I spend most of my time with them – really all of my time with the babies, yet it still doesn’t feel like enough. H is starting to “read” aka memorize his books. He is counting to 10, he is learning his ABC’s, putting sentences together and knows most of his colors. Didn’t he just start saying “mama” and “da da?” My mind is blown by this. Don’t even get me started on SR holding her own bottle and rolling all over the place to get to where she wants to be. She has even scooted a little bit. I’m not sure if it’s on purpose or by accident, but she will definitely be crawling soon. There is no doubt about that. This girl is going places.
Last week was all about Ryan and his big 3-0 birthday. This week is all about my baby boy! We are celebrating his birthday by going to the pumpkin patch and spending some quality family time together – just the 4 of us. I am so excited. I don’t even remember the last time we did this. Spending time together outside of bedtime routines, does not happen very often. It will be a blessing for sure.
