Oh, did I say I was going to update every day this month? Oops.
We are in party planning mode around here. And unfortunately, my body chose this week to get sick. I even took a sick day yesterday and Harry and I both stayed home. He is a little under the weather as well, so I thought that we’d just stay in our pajamas and watch Disney movies. But not even Finding Nemo (fish!) could capture his interest. We go somewhere like Buffalo Wild Wings and he’s slackjawed at the televisions, but on a day when I really wouldn’t mind if he sat and stared? Not interested.
I am drinking tea and taking Zicam like it’s my job, so hopefully I’ll be fine come Saturday.
Tonight I’m prepping some of his monthly pictures to display on the mantle, and I made Aaron pick out all the orange and green M&Ms from a few bags of candy, because orange and green aren’t in the color scheme. (Oh yes, I did.)
I can’t really believe that my tiny baby, whose little bottom fit in the palm of my hand and who swam in a newborn sleeper, is this big boy who is trying out words and crawling around like owns the place.
Everyone told me that it would go quickly. I knew it was speeding by as it was happening, but I can’t believe truly how quickly it went. Hang on to every second, mamas, because it really will be over before you know it. (And if you don’t like the newborn/infant stage, then that’s good news!)
It was the fastest, best year of my life. Looking forward to the next one.
