It’s so great to watch your babe grow and change and develop.  It’s so exciting to see those milestones hit and see that sparkle in their eye when they do something new.  To know their pride and be proud with them, such is the joy of a parent.


There is the 2 (ish) week period of a black hole when they learn to stand up but can’t get down.  And they growl, gawk, giggle and cry at you every single time they are put to sleep.

Sleep.  Not when I can stand and howl at the moon.  The 2 year old roomie is passed out in his bed yet the 7 month old babe is standing up in his crib.  The party is in the bed son, the party is in the bed.  GET IN YOUR BED.  GOODNIGHT. (love you, sweet dreams, kisses).
