The Days are Long, The Years are Short

Babies' lives are measured by weeks until there 3 or 4 months old.  Then the milestones are marked my months passed…. You can never NEVER say your child is “1”.  Because they’re not “1” – they are 14 or 17 or 22 months old.

But then. THEN. They turn 2. Their months become years and toddlers become little boys and they tiptoe (or crash into) bravery and independence.

Blink. Blink. Blink.

It passes sooooo fast.

Turned into to this???

Me neither.  Can't wait to see what the next year brings :)

“Time does not really exist for mothers, with regard to their children. It does not matter greatly how old the child is-in the blink of an eye, a mother can see the child again as they were when they were born, when they learned how to walk, as they were at any age-at any time, even when the child is fully grown or a parent themselves.” ― Diana Gabaldon
