I'm a big boy now!

Last night, I took Micah up to bed, put him in his pajamas, and sat with him in the glider to give him his medicine. We normally give him his medicine either in a special medicine pacifier or a thin 2 ounce tube bottle (the ones we were given in the hospital). The delivery method of choice last night was the tube bottle. Much to my amazement, Micah took the bottle from me . . . and gave it to himself. He held it the entire time, tipped it backwards and finished the entire thing without any assistance from me! He was clearly announcing that he is becoming a big boy. I was so proud of him . . . and sad at the same time. I love watching him grow, and it is so much easier to interact with him now that he can do more on his own and he has definite opinions and likes, and yet . . . I miss my little baby, and I'm flabbergasted by how quickly the time is flying. How is it possible he is almost 5 1/2 months old now?

It flies so fast...and each passing day gets more and more wonderful (and easier, I promise!). I had a hard time with some of those 'big boy' milestones, but also love to see how my son has become this delightful individual with his own thoughts, preferences, and opinions.

Motherhood is always bittersweet. But I like that kind of chocolate the best anyway!

Hope Micah is feeling better!!!

He is such a beautiful boy. I hope he's feeling better really soon.

It still amazes me how fast they grow up. I think within the next month my 12 yr old will be taller than me.
