Well, I know I'm definitely late with this one, but I have a good excuse, you see, everything is changing. Now that may seem obvious, with a baby everything is supposed to change, but between nine and ten months is when I've felt that change the most.
My parents moved closer to us. The seasons have changed. The Pumpkin Spice Lattes are out in abundance. And my baby is fast moving towards being a toddler.
Now Finn doesn't just sit, but scoots (admittedly he best at moving backwards vs. forwards but it's a start). He doesn't just coo, but demands attention and lets you know his true likes and dislikes. His personality is coming through stronger everyday and it's beautiful to watch. It's a very exciting time, but seems to clearly be an end to the newborn or "baby baby" phase.
This, combined with going back to work soon, got me thinking about how exciting, overwhelming, emotional (both good and bad) and love-filled this year has been. I'm looking forward to our last two months together and seeing how much he continues to change.
I'm trying to enjoy each phase in the moment while prepping for the next. People always say to live life in the moment and don't wish it away, and that's true, but there's more to it. You have to be present and truly enjoy it, even if it means getting nothing done, because sometimes you don't know how quickly things will change and you'll be on to the next adventure with your little one.
Looking forward to sharing the next month worth of adventures in my 11 month update.
I love to cook, entertain, craft and create - all while being a wife, friend, daughter and a mom to a little boy.
