Two Months Young!

Caroline is two months old and I feel like time is flying by. Where is my newborn? She is now a sweet, pudgy, smiley, cooey, infant. I can no longer call her a newborn. She has outgrown newborn diapers (and almost ones), newborn clothes, no longer do I have to watch her head so much, she sleeps all night (yeah!), and she is able to focus on us and respond to us. I am happy about all these things, but not that they happened so quickly. When I was in Jr. High and High school, I always wanted time to fly by so I could be older and do more things and be more independent- drive, date, etc. But never in my life have I ever wanted time to stop so badly than when I have my babies. In one short year, their bodies grow and change so much that I can hardly catch it all. And while I still love each phase they go through as kids, there is something about a baby that resonates innocence and love and beauty. And the way they smell should be bottled and sold. I don't know how many times a week I hear, "She's getting so big!" or "I can't believe how much she's changed!" I wish someone would say, "She still looks like a newborn!" Oh, well. Time goes on...

I totally know how you feel. My little wonder is also 8 weeks old and I'm so sad that she's looking like a little baby instead of a newborn! I know it's good that she's growing and they're supposed to age, but does it have to be so fast???

The only piece I don't relate to is the sleeping through the night. She sleeps tons, but not completely through the night yet. I'd be fine if that one came quickly though! :-)

Make sure to savor the moments since I don't think time will be slowing down anytime soon :-(
