this is growing up

This is a baby-related post. Please feel free to skip if you are not comfortable reading.

It's hard to believe that K will be 7 months on Saturday. I know I say this every time she gets a month older (and I write it, too), but I mean it. Every month that goes by is another month I never expected to be here.

She changes every single day. Her personality, her physical appearance. It's ever-evolving. So are her habits. She was sleeping through the night and now she's not again. She was taking short, frequent naps, and now she's napping (a little) longer and less frequently. But these things could all change tomorrow. Every day is a new adventure with her and I love it. I love never knowing what to expect.

I wonder so much about the future. I wonder what she will look like. I wonder what her personality will be like. What her favorite subject will be in school. If she will prefer sports or arts - or if she'll like both (or neither). I wonder what it will be like to teach her how to drive or to take her on college visits. I worry about drugs. And sex. And all of the things yet to come.

But right now, I try my best to just soak it in. Because when I blink, another day is over and she's grown a little bit more or she's doing something new.

I feel like time speeds up after six months and then goes super fast after a year. It's hard to soak it all in!

I love this! She is lucky to have you as a mommy. I definitely agree that they grow way too fast!

I think and worry about all that stuff too!! I guess all mommys are alike. She is adorable, I love seeing her pictures on FB!

So true and so awesome.

And, seriously, is there anything cuter than baby feet? My husband doesn't understand why I have so many pictures of them.

They change so much in every way possible from birth to age 3. Then, from 3-5 a bit of leveling out occurs where they really just become more of themselves. From 5 on, they are so much of who they are and will be but their knowledge and view of their place in the world explodes. So much mind growth going on which matches the prior 5 years physical growth in every marvelous way.

I love little baby feet pictures =) You are very wise to soak in every day. As you well know time flies by in the blink of an eye!

oh my gosh do i love baby feet - We have way too many pictures of BC feet. so sweet :)

I too wonder who my little guy will be when he grows up, what he will care about and be inspired by. I sometimes wonder if that is something that parents of children who do not share the genetic connection wonder about these things more... My other girlsfriends often make those comments in relation to their genetic family, and for some reason I feel like I can't make those same comparisons.

It is AMAZING how much they change. And you are about to see some big personality come out...
