Yesterday this sweet boy turned 7 months old.
I know, to many of you it may seem annoying to count every single month as a birthday. It’s hard to explain how every day they seem older, how every minute that you aren’t looking at them you risk missing something precious. It is truly bizarre how quickly time passes, especially when you are raising little ones. People always told me how time with your children goes by so quickly, and how easily you will forget. So, when we had Henry, I was determined to savor every little moment, to remember everything. Woosh….and now here we are. And I know that there is so much that I have forgotten.
I wish I could go back, just every once in a while…
…to the days just after each of my boys were born, to snuggle those tiny, wrinkly little bodies, to kiss the already pudgy cheeks, and to hear those first sweet, velvety little cries. This is why every birthday, even the mini ones are special.
Also, yesterday my blog reached 5000 views.
This is small-beans to major bloggers out there, but to me it was such an achievement. It is really scary putting so much of yourself out there. It is intimidating to be giving advice on how to live, when I myself screw up every day. It is hard to be giving nutrition advice, realizing that I am just in the beginning stages myself.
So to me, 5000 views was validation. That the time, energy, and tears that I have devoted to this little blog have been worth it. That someone is reading, learning, and perhaps, becoming healthier because of it. So with all of this in mind, I wanted to say thank you. And also, give to each of you, a promise.
