Well, it happened. My last baby boy turned 1 year old yesterday. I’m having a ton of mixed emotions. On one hand I wish there was some way that I could have prevented this and he be my baby forever. But on the other hand, it has been such an amazing and fun past year watching him grow and learn.
He went from my little 6 pound baby, to this amazing 24 pound boy who loves playing with his brother and singing songs. He’s so sweet and loving, but honestly, he’s growing up way too fast and I don’t think my heart can take it. I feel like our first, AJ, didn’t grow up this fast.
We did a small cake celebration and took them to the park with just us, and then we’re having a party for both of them in two weeks, but I am so going to miss having a little baby around the house. Half the time I think I want another one, but then the other half I’m more than content with just the two we have.
How do other parents handle watching their kids grow up so fast?? This is definitely a lot harder than I thought it would be.
