This week daddy went back to work so we were upstairs all night by ourselves and then alone all day as well. Â We did pretty good I think. Â On Monday, I was exhausted because we had a few sleeping issues, but by Tuesday night you were better and slept good. Â Sleep for you has been off and on all week. Â You must still be going through a wonder week or growth spurt.
Speaking of growth spurts, I looked at you one day when I was changing your diaper and wondered to myself, â€œwhen did you get so big?â€ Â Itâ€™s truly amazing to watch you grow, develop and change almost daily. Â You notice new things everyday and your attention span grows. Â You are really into black and white objects and pictures lately. Â You also LOVE when grandma and I sing you songs. Maybe youâ€™ll be a musician someday – you seem to love music. Â You definitely wouldnâ€™t get those musical genes from your mother though!
Sometimes I still look at you and cry tears of happiness. Â I grew you in my belly for 9 months and then see you daily now and the whole process of life is incomprehensible for me. Â Itâ€™s truly such a miracle and so precious.
This week America had a tragedy. Â The Boston marathon was bombed and then the area went through terror for 5 days until they caught the responsible men. Â It was devastating not only for that area, but for the whole country. Â When things like this happen, it really makes me think about how lucky I am for you and our family and how I must never take it for granted. Â It also makes me wonder how such an innocent baby can turn into a terrorist? Â Babies are so pure and angelic that itâ€™s hard to understand how they could develop into anything different, but I know it happens. Â I want to protect you from anything bad and maintain your innocence as long as possible. Â There is plenty of time for you to see the world as it is, so I love that you think all is good right now.
I think youâ€™re ready to hit the ground running now. Â You like to sit up and view the world from a different perspective. Â I think you are tired of laying down now. Â Your curiosity is amazing also. Â Itâ€™s going to be so fun to show you the world and teach you everything! Â You are such a clean slate.
I could watch you sleep forever too. Â You are so peaceful.
I found this cute shop on Etsy from a few other bloggers that had these for their kids. Â Isn’t it the cutest thing ever!?
I love you so much! Â We have hard times and blissful times, but nonetheless, despite whatâ€™s going on, I wish time would tick just a little bit slower.
