Sometimes I just don’t want my baby to grow up–sometimes I’m excited for the things maturity will bring, like sleeping for a whole night straight–but sometimes I just don’t want him to grow up. One of my favorite things I will really miss is feeding him before he goes to sleep. He is usually the most relaxed at this point, so instead of crying and getting frustrated like he sometimes does he will just calmly eat and stroke my arm or put his little hand on my breast. It’s hard to describe exactly how it feels to have my child snuggle up to me and touch me so tenderly as I’m feeding him, but I know that someday it’s going to be different. And when I realize that, I don’t want him to grow up, just stay little. Now I understand why my dad wanted me to promise to never grow up. Life just goes too fast! I’ve got to enjoy these little moments 🙂 I just hope I won’t forget them!
