Time Flies

There have been so many days lately where I look at Cohen and just wonder where my little baby went. Wasn't he just a teeny, tiny, itsy, bitsy baby!? And now I look at him and he just seems so grown up. He giggles and makes raspberry noises when he pushes cars on the floor. He pulls up to stand on everything and gets a look of absolute delight on his face when he discovers one of our phones or remotes that we accidentally left within his reach. He gives nice big slobbery kisses if he is feeling generous.

I am thankful that he still lets me hold him for his bottles, even though he barely fits in my lap anymore, I just love that time. Even if he is putting his feet on my face. 

He is growing up so fast and I'm so glad that, for the most part, I get to stay home with him. Every time I leave him, I miss him and want to go home to him. We have been very fortunate for me to be able to be at home with him. I love getting to spend so much time with my baby, time that we weren't sure we would ever get to have. Honestly, I never thought I would want to be a stay at home mom. I just didn't think I had it in me, I thought I would get bored. But I love it. I know that someday, probably sooner than later, I may need to start working more. For now, I am just trying to soak up every minute with this cute boy that I can't get enough of.

"The baby grew. He grew and he grew and he grew. He grew until he was two years old, and he ran all around the house. He pulled all the books off the shelves. He pulled all the food out of the refrigerator and he took his mother's watch and flushed it down the toilet. Sometimes his mother would say, "this kid is driving me CRAZY!" 

But at night time, when that two-year-old was quiet, she opened the door to his room, crawled across the floor, looked up over the side of his bed; and if he was really asleep she picked him up and rocked him back and forth, back and forth, back and forth. While she rocked him she sang: 

I'll love you forever,
I'll like you for always,
As long as I'm living
my baby you'll be."

From "Love you Forever" by Robert Munsch

  3. So cute! We also love, love, love "Love You Forever", but it makes me cry every time I read it aloud, so I don't read it too often. It is such a sweet book though.
