Hal | 6 weeks

Can you believe it? My little sidekick is 6 weeks (almost 7 weeks) now! Seriously, where does the time go?

When other mommas told me the time flies, I would shake my head like I knew, but let's be honest here...you don't know until you live it!  It seems like in the blink of an eye he went from a fragile newborn to a strong, kicking baby!  I'm so excited for all the new things he's learning and how strong he has become, but part of me is missing the teeny tiny newborn he used to be.  

So right now, I'm soaking in all those cuddly moments he will give me, because I know in a flash he's going to be running around, playing, and jumping.  I'll savor these moments when he is sleeping on my chest.  The mornings where I cuddle with him in the bed (because momma needs a few extra minutes of sleep!).  The afternoons filled with cute little smiles and funny baby faces.

It was great advice that was given to me, that I pass along to every new momma.  Take IN each moment with your beautiful baby.  Stare at their little faces, watch their every move.  It's OK to stop everything just to pick them up and cuddle them. To kiss them a million times a day.

These moments come and go in the blink of an eye so make sure you savor them while you can.
