It's not the first time I have barked about how quickly time flies, but with our cutie changing so quickly, it's like life is happening in fast forward (where is the pause button for goodness sake?). One minute she is a drool monster and the next minute she is opinionated about what she wants and how she wants it - UM - when did that happen again?
But it's not just about the headlines, subtle development is just as exciting and important as larger milestones. It's the moments leading up to the big events, the sweet ways that movement becomes more deliberate, communication clearer, and a growth in self that builds character and confidence. There is nothing more special than observing these details, it's the DNA that makes us who we are. There is such beauty in subtlety, and we feel so fortunate to have a front row seat.
I normally ENJOY, CHERISH, AND HONOR all things teeny-weeny on Wednesday's, but in honor of HML's 5 month milestone, it felt appropriate to celebrate today - Happy 5 months to our favorite little bean!
