My little boy will be 4 months old next week. Out of everything people constantly tell you about your new future while your pregnant, I've only found a few to be completely true. (1) You will never sleep again. That may be a bit exaggerated, but quite on track for me. I can only imagine the late nights waiting up for your sweet little one to get home. Only they won't be so little anymore.
(2) It goes by so fast.<----This is the truth. I don't think any parent would fight this as fact. Last night I went and visited a friend who has a 1 week old little girl. It is amazing how I already forgot how to hold a newborn. She felt like a feather in my arms and I couldn't understand how time had passed so fast. It felt like so long ago that he was that small. But I am so loving everything about this stage he is in now. He is curious about everything, wants to eat and hold everything and moves all over the place. I'm in trouble when he starts to crawl! But the best part about right now is how he holds me back. I waited for that since the day he was born and just to have his arms around me and his little fingers clenching them tight, BEST feeling ever!
I'm loving every second of motherhood. And I am especially thankful for my hubby. He let me sleep this morning and took Noah for a walk and played with him all morning. I got up at about 11:00 am and nursed the little man, ate some food myself and now they are off to the store together. I have some time to blog and jump in the shower! Ahhh and all on top of the amazing weather we have here in Chicago.
Have a beautiful Sunday!
