This "Unsentimental" Momma has Turned into a Blubbering Mess!

It was a weekend filled with realizations that my baby is growing up, and a weekend when I think have turned into a sap.  When Sidekick woke up from his nap yesterday, he was sitting up in his crib, and it seemed like he surprised  himself.  While this isn't very exciting news to report, it was funny that he realized he can get himself from the laying position to the sitting position.  This meant that the mattress needed to be lowered to the lowest level.  I tipped the crib over to make the adjustment and tears streamed down my cheeks while I looked at my baby army crawling and getting into trouble. At the same time, I was remembering when my friend and I put the crib together almost a year ago.  We had finished it and realized the mattress was crooked. Oops!  After staring at the crib for a while, we finally figured out what we did wrong (for the life of me, I cannot remember what it was).  Anyway, my sweet little sidekick is sleeping so low to the ground and so far from his mobile.  For some reason, he has moved around so much more since I lowered the mattress... not sure why that is.

Today was a beautiful, sunny day, so I decided to take my little sidekick to the park for his first ride on the swing.  I stopped at the store and bought some sunblock, lathered him up, and hurried to the park before naptime. He hated the swing when he was a baby, but this little daredevil couldn't go high enough.  He just squealed in delight and laughed so much.  I turned into a sap once again.  I relished in his excitement and tried to remind myself that there will be so many "firsts" in his life that I will get to share with him.  At the same time, I was reminded that my baby is going to be a toddler soon.

Sidekick will be nine months old tomorrow.  Nine months!  I was told by so many people that the times goes so fast, and I didn't believe them.  I want time to stop for just a bit.  I want to go back to the day he was born (I'll even go through my horrible labor and delivery again).  I was to go back to when he was a week old.  I want to go back to when he was a month old.  I want to go back and experience it all again.  Now as I sit at my computer, I have turned into a sap again.
