Milestones, milestones and more milestones

I recently wrote about Calvin's 1st birthday which was last month. When you have a new baby everyone including perfect strangers stop and tell you "enjoy this, it goes by so fast". During the time when you're up all night, making bottles or nursing around the clock...or both and going through the colic phase you think please let this go by fast! At least I did! PLEASE let this pass, I wanna do fun stuff like finger paint and carnival  rides.

Now thirteen months into this wild journey I now know how true that statement is and I wish some parts hasn't gone by so fast. Ok, so maybe not the first two weeks when we fine tuning a routine and getting our footing in being parents but after that some things could have slowed down. Calvin has zoomed through development and milestones at rapid pace despite what he has been through. He hasn't let it slow him down, much less stop him. I don't think he even knows the meaning of the world. Seriously, I don't think he does!

He could always make a face, even from day one. Literally.

From just barely sitting in a highchair to sitting at his own table feeding himself.

Bassinet to crib to toddler bed.....


Two months and twelve months in his swing. We only use it for a nightlight now but every now and then he climbs in to show me he can.

He started climbing and crawling out of things at four months...I should have known this was a sign!

.......and there's that carnival I was waiting on!

All in the blink of an eye. Treasure every moment. If I could go back and do it over it would have been to tune out the opinions of the world (except the ones I actually asked for) and did what felt  right for me. Time passes too fast to worry about the right baby product or the color of socks.
