Yes, so very sad….but in a good way! Isn’t it true that having your second baby makes the experience more sad?! Let me clarify…with a first baby, everything is new. I remember thinking to myself…oh, I can’t wait until my boy sits up on his own, I can’t wait for him to crawl, I can’t wait until he eats solids, I can’t wait until he talks! Just so excited to see what would be coming next! Then, with the 2nd baby, it’s more like – No! Don’t crawl, don’t walk, don’t eat table food, don’t grow teeth. Why? Because it means that your babe is growing up…and before you know it, that babe will be big, just like your first born! So sad! So, so sad! I know we want to keep them small and adorable forever :) This is why I really love babies around 7-10 months. It’s such a perfect age. They are scrumptiously chubby, drooly, cuddly, still somewhat immobile, not walking yet. Personality just exploding. Love, love this age. But definitely sad because they grow so quickly from here on out. Sigh….
