Son is 1 today. 1. Wow.
Since July 28th, 2013 – I have been counting down to this day. Every time someone asked me how old he was, I would proudly answer “8 weeks”… “6 and a half months”… but today, the idea of saying “he’s 1” breaks my heart a little. This past year has gone by way too fast for me.
He started eating solid food at 4months, sitting on his own at 5 months, got his first teeth (yes, plural) at 6 months, was standing by 7months and has been walking since the day he made 10 months. Why is he in such a rush?
Everyday that goes by brings him closer to another milestone, and take him one step further away from me. I want to forever remember the feeling of his little hand in mine, and the warm sensation in my heart when he puts his little head in the nook of my neck.
I want him to stay this small forever. I know that it will not happen, duh. But in my Mama heart I wish with all my might that it could. And in my Mama eyes, his hand will forever be little and fit perfectly in mine.
I love you, Son. Thank you for all the laughs, the smiles, the tears and the snuggles of this past year. I never knew that it was physically possible to be this happy. ❤
