I Can’t Wait Until…………………
I hear this from Mothers all the time. I can’t wait until she says Mama – I can’t wait until he can walk! – I can’t wait until she can hold her own bottle, etc.
I was there at one point. Looking back, I wish I hadn’t been so ready for her to reach that next step.
When she was around 6 months old, I asked her to stay that age forever. Not to get any bigger. She didn’t do it (brat).
Yes, you want them to get bigger and do cute things, but we really should enjoy them now. Snuggle with them, because it won’t be long before they won’t want to snuggle with you. Hold them, rock them to sleep, wonder at how tiny they are, how precious. Don’t spend your days wishing they did this or that, spend your days marveling at how great they are. It goes by so quickly.
