I realized this morning that Liam has been outside of me for as long as he was inside of me and I am just amazed. Liam is 38 weeks and 1 day old. That is exactly how far along I was when he was born.
One thing that amazes me is that it feels like forever ago that I was pregnant. I look at pictures and can’t believe how “big” my tummy was!
The other thing that amazes me is Liam. Everything about him. That he started so itty bitty inside of me and now has grown into such a loving little baby.
When Liam was born he was just a little baby who slept all the time. I would need to wake him to eat during the day and he had the cutest whimpers during his sleep. He immediately became the center of our world.
Now I look at him and see how much he has grown. It is hard to even remember how little he really was because he is still my little baby boy in my mind. I think he is just a little peanut but when I see new babies I am reminded of how much he has grown and developed in the past (almost) 9 months.
He went from just a little bundle to the most curious baby I have met. He doesn’t miss anything that is happening around him. He is crawling everywhere and getting into whatever he can. He is so smiley and always lights up when Joe or I walk into a room. He is now able to show excitement and frustration. He enjoys anything that makes noise.
His little personality is just bursting through and I already couldn’t be more proud of this sweet boy.
I have learned to cherish every single moment I get to spend with him because time goes way to fast. I am excited for Liam’s continued growth and development but want time to just slow down so I can really appreciate every little thing as he continues to grow.
