They say that the days are long but the years are short. I repeat this like a mantra when I’m up in the middle of the night, or soothing a teething monster. I’m trying to soak up this time, and commit everything to memory. Every cuddle, every milestone, every moment of frustration. I truly can’t believe that our baby is already 9 months old, and that the next installment of this series will be for his first birthday. He is starting to make that leap from baby to toddler, becoming more independent and needing us less and less. It’s sad to see the baby stage go, but so fun and exciting to watch him learn new things and become aware of the world around him. We love you so much our wild, funny, smart little boy.
