Ok seriously I need to get myself together, this has been in drafts for a month. I’m not going to lie, my life is a little bit unorganized right now, and quite honestly the only thing I care about is getting enough time to spend with my little munchkin, so a lot of things get dropped to the side (sorry blog). I will eventually find some order…eventually! A lot of things have changed since I wrote this A MONTH ago.
Cue tears! Yes tears! I think I cried for a whole week right up to Little A’s bday! Honestly I have no idea when I turned so sappy, but I’m now considered sappy by everyone that knows me! I CAN’T BELIEVE MY LITTLE MUNCHKIN IS 1! I often wonder if 1 year was always this short or that I’m getting older and time just seems shorter? (does that make sense?) or that so much happens in a baby’s first year that time just, well…flies? Whatever, she’s 1!!! She‘“steps” but she’s not really fully walking yet, (walks fully with her little walker though?) and I’ll be honest and I’ve said it before I don’t care. There is all this competition that seems to go around with moms and their babies and I just don’t want to go there right now. But…she says a lot of words and signs for the ones she can’t say (I’m not talking full on language skills here, but you know what I mean). She seems to have suddenly, “changed.” As if she turned 1 and she became a whole other baby. The communication and the behavior, plus the personality has blossomed so much in just a little while that it blows my mind sometimes. (am I making any sense? Please someone tell me ya know what I mean). On the downside, Little A had her first flu…ever! (yes I try to keep my baby in a bubble, can you sense the sarcasm? people and their opinions…Grrrr!!!) on her birthday! How unfair is that? Very, I think. But she kept up with her normal spirit, or at least tried. I know I said it in the beginning of this post, but seriously…I HAVE A ONE YEAR OLD? This whole raising a baby thing is so surreal sometimes. Gotta love it.
