I stumbled upon what appears to be yet another cool parenting blog that I am just exploring a bit today. Here's a sample:
I am already sentimental about Mae's tiniest days, and just remarked to Ted last night that I realized that she is already about one-third of the way through her baby year, and how that seemed like it went by awfully fast.
However, like this blogger, I am so grateful for the diminishing hours of screaming and for the reassuring reality that my baby now smiles a lot, and giggles, and can be reasonably content when left to squirm around on the floor or sit in the exersaucer by herself for a handful of minutes at a time. Mae has become a happy little baby, and it's so nice now to see that she is actually enjoying life.
As precious as those tiny days are, I am glad they're over. Now if we can just get Mae to sleep through the night...
One other thing I am looking forward to as Mae grows:
Hair. To be more precise, pigtails. I have already been holding on to this knitting pattern for almost two years, and as God is my witness I will knit this for Mae as soon as she has enough hair to make pigtails. Looks like I'll have plenty of time before that day comes.
