"Can you believe that NEXT MONTH you'll have a one-year-old?"
I was immediately taken back to a year ago when Morgan said to me:
"You know, now you can officially say that NEXT MONTH you'll have a baby."
Now, thankfully that actually happened a year ago. That kid wanted to stay in there so long that I began to think he was never coming out. But he finally did...9 days late.
These statements got me thinking though. First, wow, Morgan is good at remembering that September is the month before big things happen with my kid. Second, now she will have to do this every September, otherwise it will feel weird. But mostly, NO I CAN'T BELIEVE THAT NEXT MONTH I WILL HAVE A ONE-YEAR OLD!!!!!!!
It's so crazy how quickly time goes by when you're looking back and how slowly it feels when you're watching the clock sometimes. There have been days as a stay-at-home mom that I felt would never end. Yet, now I'm living in the month before my child turns one and it's a little hard to grasp. I can't wait to celebrate next month that we have all made it an entire year!
