Is it just me, or did 2017 really whoosh on by? I know 2016, for many of us felt as though it dragged on and on, but this year, my goodness, I didn’t want a year in fast forward! But as I’m always telling the kiddos, “You get what you get and you don’t make a fuss.” But, in relation to all that, Harlow babe is about to be 19 months old in a few weeks here, and I’m holding on to the baby stage fiercely. Will this be my last babe? I don’t know, and that has me holding onto him in each stage for as long as possible.
I’ll always remember being so excited for the day when I wouldn’t have to diaper any longer. I was so excited when Luca became potty trained, and of course shortly after he was, Harlow joined us. Such is life. But this time, around, I honestly haven’t minded it one bit. Diapers are a part of my routine, and I don’t really think twice about it, it’s just what I do. I don’t even long for the day Harlow is potty trained, I just want to revel in the present moment, allowing each of my children to hit their milestones at their own pace, and, I, doing my very best to enjoy the process.
