I know every new parent hears the phrase "Enjoy it while you can! It goes by so fast!" about 2,316 times before the baby even turns 6 months old, but you don't really appreciate the enormity of this statement until you actually have a little kiddo of your own running around.
I've heard from several of my mommy friends that it seems to go even faster with the second than the first. Maybe that's because you've already got your hands full with one child and you don't get to enjoy the Stop and Smell the Roses kind of moments like you did when you were a family with just one child. (Which, if I might point out, is another argument for just having one kid. Just saying!)
So, anyway, all that to say V3 is one. I'm a mommy to a kid who can now express his own opinion about things (even if I often have NO idea what he's actually trying to tell me). He can feed himself his pancakes and his peas and he would much rather do it himself than have me help.
He never ceases to amaze me. He's got a HUGE personality in one little body. I am astonished at how vocal he can be about things sometimes. And he's handsome. Oh my gosh is he cute. He melts my heart.
Being a mommy to such a cute little boy makes my life complete.
Happy birthday, V3. Mommy and dada love you more than you will ever know!!
