But, momming, man I love so much that I get to be a mom to our sweet little. So, today, I'm starting a little series here called "Momming in the Mundane: Appreciating the everyday joys of motherhood" in which I hope to document some of the little things that happen around our home that just make my heart swell. Sometimes these are major milestones, and more times they are sweet baby giggles when I make a silly face. But I want to remember it all.
I think that this will be a fun way for me to document how I'm feeling and what I'm learning without having to share all the nitty gritty and personal stories from our days.
We are 10 months in now, which in so many ways feels totally crazy to me. The little is growing and learning so much these days and he is constantly on the move and into everything.
I was a little concerned about his crawling when at six months, everyone started asking me, "so, is he crawling all over the place yet?" I would always respond with a quick, "not yet, but he's trying to scoot all around!" And then one day, he just started to get around. Now, he is pulling up on everything, crawling here and there and always wanting to walk holding our hands. It is so fun.
He's also got 4 top teeth trying to come through so we've had some challenging days here in the past few weeks, but I'm excited for him to be getting more teeth!
And finally, I've talked a little about his sleeping here before, but we successfully transitioned to the crib in his own room a few months ago, which was huge! Little started sleeping MUCH better through the night, only waking up once. That is until recently when he only wants to be with me when he gets tired. I've slept with him the last few nights, which has allowed us all to get more sleep. Am I creating bad habits? I don't know. But, we are all more well rested. Frankly, I am being reminded more and more of his independence everyday and if he wants to snuggle, I want to snuggle with him. He does know how to sleep on his own, as he proves to me at nap times, so I just let it be.
Y'all. I just really love momming so much. I am learning constantly, always on my toes, and totally in awe and full of thanksgiving for this sweet little love.
