baby, slow down!
My youngest, my baby, is speeding through his infancy. It makes me both sad and happy. It's a strange feeling. I snuggle him and think wow I'm not going to have this for very long. Yet I marvel at how fast he is reaching milestone after milestone. When I pick him up from his bed, he reaches out both his hands to touch my face. I can easily imagine the gesture to mean to soothe me as if to say, "Mommy, it's Ok. I love you!"
Three weeks ago, he started sitting on his own for a few seconds at a time. Today, he can sit up even longer. And of course he is in the process of trying to figure out how to crawl. Today Little M is 5 months and 5 days old.
