She turns one in a few days. It’s so strange. She’s my baby and sometimes I feel so bad that time has escaped so quickly and I feel like I missed out on so much. Like maybe I should have videotaped her more or taken more pictures, anything that would make this time just freeze for a bit longer.
We’re finally moving on some baby things along like the baby tub, or the infant rocking seat because those are things we just don’t need anymore. I have been in this baby stage for the past seven years, it is hard to let go, though for us it really is time. Soul was walking at 9 months and Glow is barely standing at almost 1 year. I am just fine with that. She’s a healthy little girl and I know the walking will come. I am just in no hurry.
She happily crawls about the house, holds on to edges and walks that way, I see drool spots all over the wood floors, her favorite toys are the wooden blocks and this girl is just always happy. When she isn’t, it usually means she’s sleepy, so just put her down in her bed and she rolls onto her tummy immediately and goes to sleep. I love the way her toes curl when she stands up, she gets growly when food is placed in front of her and we call her “Glanimal”, her hair is always in her face, and she has hair has a big knot at the back that I don’t have the heart to cut.
This little one makes my heart swell, well they all do, but of course the older ones have a little more sass to them now. Heck! True even yells at me sometimes. You can imagine that didn’t turn out so well for her and she was best friend’s with a wall for a bit. I know in due time this baby will have that same sass and we will both fight. I hope that time doesn’t come too soon and I will just spend now inhaling her baby-ness, trying to take as many pictures and video of her as I can, and just cuddling her as much as possible. Though no matter how much I do now, I will still be wishing I did more later. I just know this will all go by way too fast.
