It is funny how my feelings about babyhood have changed with each subsequent baby... with my first one (who is turning 14 next month... emoticon ) it has always been exciting to watch her take the next step (rolling, sitting, walking, etc) and it still is now. With the others, and now ESPECIALLY Jacob it just makes me sad because I KNOW full well how fast it goes -- heck, my oldest baby starts high school next year and it seems like just yesterday she was a teeny, tiny baby. Sigh. I have made a strict resolve to myself to simply enjoy each moment for what it is with Jacob since he will be our last. I can honestly say, I don't mind being so tired, fussy times don't bother me, I relish each and every diaper change. Sigh. I have been so smitten with him ever since he came to us and I see him for what he is, our total miracle baby. The baby that wasn't supposed to be, the baby that they swore would never be with the whole IUD situation, the baby that I couldn't imagine a day of my life without now. It is just so amazing to me how amazing the whole process was from the start to current. I just know how fast it is going to go... and sometimes that makes me so sad, but at the same time it makes me so happy because I know what I have to look forward to with him as well. It is such a strange emotional mix but I can say without a shadow of a doubt that I am the happiest I have ever been in my entire life and I feel like my family is so complete, the circle has closed. Ah but still... 6 weeks... sigh...

You know, initially when everyone would make comments about wanting babies to stay babies forever, I was like, NO WAY! We had a rough first 6 weeks, what with Graham having some colic and me having the baby blues. But now, at almost 5 months, I can totally understand what people are saying. I'm overjoyed each time Graham learns something new, but it's a little sad that he won't be my little roly poly buddha belly baby forever.

Love,
Hillary

Yes!! Everyday they are less and less that little baby. And it's awesome that they are growing and doing new things; I can't wait until the little guy can eat solid food and can talk to me and go to school and pick a career. But at the same time I want him to stay little forever. I want him to be all ages at once. I actually had a dream about that - I was holding baby Jonas and then another toddler age boy walked in the room and started talking to me, and it was him. And then a 12 year old Jonas walked in too. Like I was in a sci-fi movie and all of time had collapsed into this one spot, so that I could be in every moment at once (sorry I'm a nerd).

All I have to say is why does it have to go so fast?! I went in for my 6 week PP check up, today is baby's 6 week b-day and I feel like crying because I know his baby-hood is going to go so fast emoticon Anybody else feel sad because of this???
