Do you ever wish you could freeze time? Something is so good, you just wish it wouldn't change, ever? I can think of a few times in my life where I felt this way, but they are few and far between.
Usually I'm the type of person that is constantly looking toward the next thing, and not relishing the present. When I was pregnant I couldn't wait until the day I delivered. Then I couldn't wait until The Chubs left Children's hospital and could finally come home with us. Then I couldn't wait until she was sleeping more than 3 hour stretches, and so on and so forth. But right now, I just want to freeze time. In two weeks she'll be 6 months old. How did that happen? It feels like just yesterday she was a tiny little peanut hooked up to oxygen sleeping swaddled in her swing. Now she's a little person; giggling, smiling, cooing and babbling, finding fascination with everything life has to offer. How can my baby be 6 months old? Half a year of her life has passed and it feels like it's gone so fast. It won't be long until she's crawling, walking and then going off to Kindergarten. I'm so excited for all the stages to come, for different reasons, but I'm not quite ready to let go of my baby. She's my miracle and today, I'm enjoying who she is now. I have a lifetime to look forward to who she will be.
