Today, August 13 at 2:09 pm (EST), my baby, my “Lil Nugget” as we lovingly refer to him, turned 9-months old. Where the heck did the time go? Without fail, on the 13th of every month since he was born, I relive the detailed play-by-play of the hours and moments leading up to his birth…His arrival was fast and furious, and like his big brother before him, I will never forget any of it!
The boys and I have spent most of our summer days chilling out at home, watching (too much) TV and playing. More often than not though, I have felt really guilty about not being able to play more with my older son, my Lil Man, because I’m so preoccupied with, or completely exhausted from, the baby. Nugget LOVES to eat and he’s now at that super fun baby stage where if I leave his sight he screams bloody murder. He’s still feeding several times at night, which means this Mommy gets very little sleep *yawn*. Despite these challenges, I have to remind myself that the most important thing is we’ve spent our mostly lazy summer days together and I will forever cherish this very special summer I got to spend with both of my beautiful boys.
As summer slowly comes to an end, so to will my maternity leave in 4 short months, and I’m so sad about it 🙁 On the one hand, I’m looking forward to returning to work and seeing my amazing co-workers everyday again. On the other hand, I will be away from my babies, and just the thought alone makes me wanna cry! So I will spend the last month of summer cuddling and kissing my babies as much as I possibly can and savouring every moment and making memories.
What have you been up to this summer?
