Today I chose to nap. While I should be cleaning out the disaster that is my closet, or packing for our upcoming move, I chose to nap. Ezra went down for a nap and so did I, and although I’ll come to regret it when I come home from work tonight, it’s hard not to want to snuggle up with my little guy every chance I get.
I feel like just yesterday we came home with him and now he’s sitting up and eating purees, I look at newborn pictures and swear he’s not the same baby. Where’d my tiny human go?! With maternity leave long behind me, I feel like all I did was blink and it was over. Now Ezra’s nearly six months old and I just can’t believe it.
Halloween happened, Thanksgiving is next week, and we’re already talking about Christmas, please stop the clock! This mama is not ready for time to keep going by as fast as it is! Everyone says the first year goes by so fast, but seriously how?! Why can I think back to how long a year in my life takes and feel like with a baby in the mix it’s not even the same time frame?!
Moral of the story, time is flying by and as exciting as it is I’d wish that time would just stop for a little bit and let us catch up, give us a chance to enjoy all the little things before throwing in a whole bunch more.
