I am a mother of many mixed emotions this evening. Why I hear you ask? Well the evening before my baby princess turns 10 months old she has decided to crawl! … She is now a full-blown crawler, Across the living room crawling. Not rolling, Not army shuffling, Not bum shuffling but actual hands and knees like a big girl!
Whilst I am extremely proud of her for finally mastering the art of crawling and I have joined in with the cheering, clapping and celebrating I am also tinged with sadness that my final baby has reached another milestone and is getting bigger. She’s becoming more independent and I am becoming a little more redundant. All too soon she will be walking, going to school etc. Time just goes far too quickly. I don’t want her to grow up.
She will be the last baby of my own that I will watch hitting milestones, gaining a personality and becoming her own person instead I will have to wait to be blessed with grandchildren to see it again. I am too young for this! I genuinely wasn’t expecting to feel that little bit of sadness in the pit of my stomach every 1`time that she hits a milestone but I can’t help but think she is growing way to fast for my liking.
As well as learning to crawl she is gaining a little personality of her own which mainly involves picking on her big brother, shouting, being a little diva and a madam. She is extremely spoilt and has a bit of a meany streak to her. I have watched her go out of her way to get across the room just to try to bite Freddie. She is very head strong already and this worries me a little. What on earth will she be like as a toddler… I can only imagine!
SLOW DOWN BETHIE BOO!
