My little angel is 5 months old today. It seems like yesterday that I was still carrying him around inside me and I couldn't wait for him to be out! I have to admit sometimes I wish I was still pregnant so I wouldn't have to share him with anyone. :) He is growing up so fast. It amazes me, the fact that when I was a little girl it seemed like my birthday or Christmas would take so long to get here and that it would take forever to grow up...now that I am a mom this little life is flashing by me. It's incredible to watch this little person learn new things and just be so happy to stand up on my lap holding my hands. I try to soak every millisecond of his life in my mind so it will be a time capsule. When I'm rocking him or staring at him sleeping, I say to myself take a mental picture now...this memory will be my happy thought sometime down the road. You would all be amazed by the stock of memories already! I guess you can say watching your child grow up is bittersweet...a part of me wants him to stay a baby forever wanting him to need me all the time. Then another part of me is so excited to see him grow and learn and make new memories with him. I guess all I can do for now is sit back and enjoy the ride of being a mommy.
