It seems like I'm frequently saying "My baby is... (fill in blank with newest accomplishment)" in my sad-time-is-flying voice. LE is starting to understand "games" and puts the blanket over her own head for a round of "Where's Maya?" She smiles, rather bursting into tears, on the swings now. And just the other day, for the first time, she crawled away from me at story time to explore and play with the other kids.
Do we all turn into our mothers? We have a baby and immediately we become sappy and worry warts. I knew that something must change for all moms to have the same annoying traits. I don't want to get crazy, but it's probably not avoidable. I apologize in advance, LE. You are just so stinkin' cute and I can't get enough of you.
