Last week we celebrated your 8 month birthday. The time is flying by and it’s all bittersweet. I love watching you grow up and learn new things, but at the same time I want to keep you a baby forever. Holding you, reading and playing with you, giving you kisses, and rocking you to sleep are the greatest joys of my life. Knowing that this phase is a fleeting moment in time has forced me to live in the moment and cherish every single minute.
