They grow up so fast. It’s the biggest cliche, but it’s cliche for a reason. I find myself thinking this all too often with Eli. How is he already standing up?! How did he outgrow this already?! I thought of these things as I went to the store just to get him some size 4 diapers. (Size 4! That should be illegal! He’s not even 9 months yet!) Eli sat in the cart happily babbling and swinging his legs around as I weaved through the Target baby isles to get a giant box of the next size up. The days are flying by me and I just do my best to take it all in. I love getting to spend all day with this little guy. Even if some days are tiring or frustrating. At the end of the day I find myself laying in bed all cozied up in the covers nursing Eli, and I like to think that he will always be my baby boy, no matter how grown up he gets.
…and I promise to never tell his future girlfriends how much I kissed him on the lips 😉
