Let me paint you a pretty picture.
My son just turned 15 months old. Literally this last week.
He is ALL boy.
Very adventurous and constantly testing his limits and boundaries.
|his mischievous face. ;)|
The last say month or so. We kiss him and lay him in his bed awake at
night. He snuggles up to his doggie and blankie and just goes to sleep.
No fussing. Just lays down and minutes later he is out.
He sleeps from 8:30 or so at night to 7:30 and sometimes 8:00!
When he wakes in the morning I will hear him on the monitor start to talk
and babble. Within about 5 minutes I go to get him and he is normally
still laying down playing with his doggie jabbering up a storm.
This cool beautiful October morning was different though.
I heard him wake and start stirring/talking as normal.
Not even two minutes had went by and
no sooner than I roll over to get out of bed.
He comes barreling through my bedroom door with a big cheesy grin
and hollered "HAY MOMMA!"
As if he was saying look what I did. =)
I of course take flight trying to get to him and make sure he is okay.
Which he was but now I am a nervous wreck.
His crib rails are very high and I am terrified
he is going to get hurt trying to do this again.
When did he become this toddler who is no longer just my baby boy?!
How does this happen so fast.
Now I am in crazy Momma mode trying to price and find him a new
BIG BOY BED.
I'm not ready for this.
Don't guess I have a choice though.
I just have to remind myself to accept what comes
and embrace every moment.
I am proud of my big boy and happy he is growing up and learning all these new things.
I just wish I could freeze time and enjoy it all in slower motion.
Now excuse me why I cry again for the 100th time in two days.
With a Heavy Heart,
