I wish I could go back in time and see him the way he was when he was a baby. And I wish I would've known it would fly by... I feel like I missed out, but I was always there! Ugh.
Oh, me too! Oh, I keep looking at Axel lately and thinking, who is this big boy? Who is this boy that I have? I'm a mom to a boy?
He must have grown recently. You know, he was my firstborn and will always be my baby, but how is not A baby anymore?
The whole potty training thing is bittersweet, ridiculously. As if I still want him in diapers, and yet he keeps telling me he has to go pee, and I can't believe it! (I always had to instigate it). I keep looking at his diaper-less butt and thinking, who's boy bum is that?? (It's so cute and little!) I have a potty-trained son?? How could that be?
When I put him to bed I try and kiss him lots, and snuggle up. I like to read stories because we can snuggle together. And I like to hear him on the phone becuase he still sounds so sweet and innocent, but in real life his ideas are so complex, and you can see thoughts and emotions on his face. A few times now at night he told me he doesn't like the monsters in the kitchen, and I'm like, 'monsters? we have monsters now??- as in in his brain, not in the kitchen, but heck, maybe he's right!'
ok, now I'm off on my little boy...I don't want him to get older! I want to keep him at this age- I'll keep the tantrums! People keep mentioning school next year, and I just kind of lose all my words, and then say 'ya! i keep hearing about this school thing....' \
at least I look at Eva, and enjoy her sweet little babyness, and think I (hopefully) get to experience this a few more times, but also just sit and enjoy it.
why did you have to start!!??
and that was a seriously incoherant post- i guess I can't express these things very well!
