From laughs to smiles, giggles to cries, this parenting thing is one heck of a journey. Yes, I have an almost seven month old. Seriously, where did the time go? It feels like just yesterday we were racing to the hospital getting ready to welcome our bundle of joy into the world.
Where’s the slow motion button?
Why not pause?
Because watching him change day in and day out is pretty much my favorite thing ever. This kid is awesome and he gets even better with each passing day.
Our lives are filled with teaching, watching, and experiencing him. My ears hear every laugh and cry. My mind is constantly thinking about ways to teach him. My heart pains for him when he’s not happy. My hands love to hold him and play with him. My feet love to take him on daily walks around the neighborhood.
My whole being is full of so much love for this kiddo.
Each day, it’s incredible to witness all that he’s learning. With his attentive eyes, he takes in every last ounce that the world offers to him. He’s like a sponge … soaking up all of the sights, sounds, and smells that encompass his world.
In these seven months, he has learned and has taught us so much. From honesty to patience, happiness to understanding, this parenting thing is one heck of an adventure.
