My son is coming up to the big 18 month landmark and it has forced me to focus on the time that has already passed!
I remember the days where he was popped on any surface.... and stayed there!
Breakfast, lunch and dinner consisted of dairy, dairy and more dairy. No thinking, no planning, no sweet potato puree stuck on the ceiling.
Nap times were frequent and long, and sometimes.... we got a lay in.
Communication was in the form of loud wails and flailing arms as opposed to floppy legs and the word NO!
What I get now though I consider to be non-comparable.
Continuous hugs and kisses followed by 'I lu loo Mummy' (I love you)
Endless story time and imaginative play where I can act like the big kid I really am!
A best friend that goes everywhere with me, that keeps me smiling, keeps my head on cloud nine and makes me the happiest person I could ever be!
A mini sponge that picks up every word... even the bad ones..
I loved having a little baby for so many reasons, but I have to say I love having a toddler that little bit more. I wish that I could whack out Bernard's watch and pause the heck outta time so I could stay in this moment forever!
What was your favourite age and why?
