I can’t believe my baby boy is 8 months old! I feel like it was just a couple of weeks ago that we brought him home from the hospital and we were in parent boot camp. What is parent boot camp you may ask? It is little to no sleep and it is hard to believe that you will ever get enough sleep because it seems there is no end to the constant waking up. It is putting your needs and wants second or third every single minute of every day. It is trying to figure out your new schedule of when to shower, when to eat, when to go the bathroom! It is learning that there is no such thing as a quick trip to the store anymore. It is remembering everything to put in the diaper bag down to the favorite toy because if you get stuck somewhere waiting you NEED that toy. ( I know from experience what it’s like to forget that toy!) It is falling in love with a little person that didn’t exist moments, days, weeks ago. It is watching their face take in everything and seeing them learn. It is seeing them smile at you for the very first time. It is hearing their laugh and trying to make them laugh over and over again because their laugh is probably the best noise you have ever heard. It is watching them pick up something for the first time. It is seeing them get so excited when they learn something new. It is hurting for them when they are sick and wishing you could just make it all better. It is one of the greatest Joys in life that God gave us. I thank God everyday for my little boy. Happy 8 months to my baby boy who is growing up so fast.
