Taking it all in

Lately I feel like life has been going all to fast, especially since having Mason and  I'm trying to catch every moment and second I can. I keep thinking Mason will be 1 years old before I know it, then he will be going to his first day of school, then middle school, high school, college, graduation, mission, and then marriage and before I know it all my children will be grown up and I will be a grandma. Haha I know that's a long time for now but life is going by fast and sometimes I cannot help but think about it, I'm not the only one who thinks this right? Well yesterday came and Mason and I were just snuggling watching his favorite show daniel tiger (catching on to those lyrics too) and he just sat there in my lap holding my hands and it got me thinking how I need to take this moment in, my little mas looks up at me and just stares at me and smiles! Talk about melting moms heart ! I smiled at my baby and told him I loved him followed by a kiss. I told myself to enjoy this moment, don't think about him turning 1, he's 8 months now and enjoy this moment, right here , right now! That's just what I did. We tend to think so much about the future and don't get me wrong the future can be exciting, especially thinking about your baby growing , I love thinking about Mason walking or  me being the embarrassing parent and talking photos of him with his date on prom night but I've come to realize that the present is also very important and we shouldn't miss the moments we have now. I love watching Mason follow us as we go into another room, hearing his little "ah" "oooo" baby talking as he looks for us. I love seeing  him learn  new games and seeing the reaction he has when mom and dad make a silly face. I love him holding Rex or I tightly as we carry him to his crib and he falling asleep on our shoulder. I need to think more of right now and less of future (even if exciting) my baby is only this young once and as for me , I'm just going to follow him and see what he wants to do today and tomorrow and so on.

Like yesterday, I decided to let mason try yogurt and to be honest play with it. I believe he's almost at his finger food phase and wanted him to discover how to eat more with his hands. So I just let him sit in his high chair  with just a diaper and let him go wild with the yogurt. Haha I thought I was going to regret it but I didnt! I loved seeing him play with his food and put the yogurt in his mouth and smile to me and his make a mess all over his high chair. I know it seems messy and another clean up but I enjoyed  and I know he did too! Seeing him discover and learn is a blast for all of us. 8  months is exciting, heck every one has been but were both going to live each day, enjoy mason being this little and just take this all in!

  1. I love that our babies are so close in age. I feel this way so often, and it's such a bittersweet thing. It's so fun watching them grow, but it just goes by so fast! He is the cutest little thing!!

  2. It definitely goes too fast. My youngest turns 4 in July, much too soon for my taste.

  3. Why do kids have to grow so fast?! My kids are 5 and 3 and I swear it was just like yesterday that each of them was born.
