To say time flies feels like a complete understatement at the moment, and all those times people have said to me "they grow up so fast", couldn't feel any more true than at this precise moment. The scary thing is... I think it's just the beginning!
My baby girl is almost 7 months old. And with every day comes new learnings - not just for her, but for me as well! Just when you start to get the hang of things, a new chapter of parenthood begins.
I actually had the nerve the other day to say only 9 months 'til Christmas! Needless to say, the shop attendants looked at me with somewhat of a scornful expression. It may have felt like it was just the other day, but Christmas has long gone and the change of season is upon us. So I guess it's only right, that so many more changes are coinciding with the weather.
I'm heading back to work, my bubs is sick for the first time (yes this suspiciously coincided with the previous statement, perhaps an indication she doesn't want me to go?) she's eating grown up food (albeit all mushy but still!), and every day I look back on how much she has changed and grown in just 7 months. In a way it's kind of scary... what's she going to be like in another 7 months time! But overall, it's just super exciting. She might not fit her tiny wee clothes that she wore the first week of her life any more, but there are so many other new beginnings to look forward to instead!
