One day he's lunging forwards and back at an attempt to crawl. Then before I know it, he's chasing Frankie down the hallway. One minute he's playing quietly by my side, the next he's on the other side of the room chewing on a cable (naughty!) or Frankie's toy (eeks! I know).
Watching him grow is so bittersweet. On one hand, my heart swells with pride as he gains each new skill yet the other part of me wants desperately to cling on to his babyhood. Juju wrote this wonderful post here about how it all goes by so fast and how we should slow right down and enjoy each little moment of motherhood. And I couldn't agree more with that.
PS: Did you have a lovely Mother's Day? I celebrated my first Mother's Day with Stu, Alexander and my in-laws. And because it was also a belated birthday celebration for Stu and his father, it was an especially happy occasion. We lunched at our favourite local restaurant and I bought one of Ben and Jerry's famous ice cream cakes for all to enjoy. Needless to say, it was yummy!
