Wishing Time Would Slow Down
I realize that with each passing day he is growing older and changing, and that I’ll never get those baby days again. Yet, I also realize that growing up is exactly what he’s supposed to do. So, when Baby MPB was born, rather then mourn the days that are passing, I made made the decision to embrace and celebrate each new milestone that Baby MPB reaches.
But last night, as I watched him, I couldn’t help but wish time would slow down.
You see, he took his first step from one piece of furniture to another. He was holding onto to furniture the entire time, so it’s not an official first step or anything like that. He’s always loved to stand, in fact his happy place is any place he can stand. And, in the last week or two he has started walking with us when we are holding his hands. But, to actually be able to take a step without us, just blows my mind.
But, it’s way too soon! Seriously, I’m not ready. Somehow having a child who can walk makes him seem so much older then he actually is.
I know babies reach milestones at different ages, and Baby MPB seems to reach them all early. But I really wish I could hold onto my little guy just a little while longer. Right now all I can think about is that if I blink he’ll be off to kindergarten and the next thing I know he’ll be enrolled in college and moving out. (Okay, maybe that’s a bit of a stretch…).
Oh, and since when do babies do this so young?! Somehow I feel like once he’s walking he’ll no-longer by my little baby, rather he’ll be some sort of miniature toddler. Again, I’m just not ready.
I am beyond thankful that he’s my little boy and that he’s thriving each and every day. Yet, today I cannot help but feel like he’s growing up too fast.
