It's a funny thing, growing up. With Brynn, we were ecstatic for every milestone, jumping for joy with every weight check that showed good growth, and celebrating every "normal" behavior. We still are.
But something is different with Heidi. She's not even 3 months old yet and she's already smiling, cooing, laughing, holding herself up at tummy time for long stretches, standing with only enough support to give her balance, and sitting pretty well in the bumbo. Her head used to be so tiny in the crook of my arm as she nursed. Now I swear it's doubled in size.
Today as she stretched out on the bed in all her 25ish-inch glory, I almost got weepy. It's going by so fast. Call me a sap. I know. Suck it up, Nat.
But seriously, why do they tell us that a career is more fulfilling than motherhood? I've been in Corporate America, thank you, and although I truly enjoyed my job, it is NO comparison to the here and now. I never thought I'd feel this way. I never thought I'd love being a mother so much.
But I do.
Thank you, God, for my wonderful family. Please help me not to miss a moment 'cuz I'm already really sad time is going so fast.
