We had dinner with my cousin, his partner, and their two-month-old a few months ago.
“Baby, come back here,” I said to Leone as she toddled away.
Both my cousin, who was cuddling his tiny son, and his partner, who was talking politics with the older girls, laughed.
“I guess you think of her as a baby, huh?” Jesse said.
Compared to my cousin’s baby, our daughter, who turns 19 months old tomorrow, is as big as a sumo wrestler.
When my husband holds her I notice wistfully how long her legs have grown.
She’s so much bigger than she was but she’s still so little.
They don’t stay little for long.
In a flash, they go from being babies to toddlers to preschoolers to … college.
It doesn’t matter.
Even when she’s 50 years old, she’ll still be our baby.
Are you impatient for your babies to tackle the next stage or do you wish you could slow time down? Is it just me or do we all have mixed feelings about our children growing up?
