and I have to say it’s bittersweet. My baby is growing up, spreading her wings and learning how to stand UP! We were playing this morning with her little
Playskool thingy (I don’t know the name of it) when she started pulling up on it.
She pulled herself up to her knees and gave me the biggest cutest little “LOOK at me grin!”
She’s 8 months old now and the happiest baby. She fell down once trying to pull herself up all the way, and didn’t even cry. I helped her sit back up and she gave me a smile and started trying again!
“Look ohmmy I did it!”
Oh and she started calling me Ohmmy the other day. She was sleepy and started crawling over to me (combat crawling… no hands and knees yet) and said, “ohmmmy mmmm.” How sweet is that?
Enough to make my heart melt!
Motherhood is such a blessing! I messaged Doug and showed him the pictures.
He was sad he missed it. When Samantha was born he was doing contract work from home and was able to see all her little firsts. Now he feels left out, and it kind of breaks my heart. He’s always felt a little closer to Samantha since she was born because of this. When Katelyn was born, he had to work and after work hours, well let’s just say he was big into Gaming then.
I hope he realizes how unique both girls are, and treats them equally. Actually, I hope he lets up some on Katelyn. He’s always been a little tough on her. I’m not sure if it had to do with his upbringing or what, but he is getting better. (I love you honey)
Only 9 more years and my sweet Katelyn will be graduating. It seems like its right around the corner and I tear up thinking about it. My heart is full today and I am very fortunate to have such a loving family. I better go before I get really mushy.
