My baby is 2.

Posted on

I don’t know how it’s possible that 2 years have passed by so quickly!  Two years filled with many ups and downs, equal parts joy and sadness, and love for this firecracker of a boy that grows exponentially each day.

His first birthday was such a joyous day- we’d made it a full year, we felt victorious and excited to celebrate with all of our closest friends and family.

This year feels bittersweet.  I love this energetic little Monkey such a ridiculous amount that I want him to stay my tiny little baby forever.  I want to be able to grab him and kiss him and blow raspberries on his belly any time I feel like it.  I want him to snuggle up next to me and watch cartoons in bed on Saturday morning for the rest of my life, not just a few more years.  Knowing that, with each passing year, he will grow farther and farther away from me makes my heart break.

I’m allowing myself to feel melancholy, just for a minute, and then I will celebrate that my precious baby is another year older, that he is healthy, and that right now, in this moment, he still loves his Momma the most.
