First Moments

By the time I arrived at the hospital I was 10 centimeters. The nurse said the only reason I didn't deliver in the car is because my water wouldn't break. He came out wanting to eat and hasn't stopped since! He nursed right away and the only time he left my side was to get shots or weighed.

I can't believe he's five months old now. He's growing so fast. Today I had to pack away his newborn clothes. They were so tiny! I got pretty emotional. It was the final reality that we had turned a corner in his life. He wasn't a little baby that just cried and slept. Now he's a little person and what a character he is!

Those newborn moments fly by so quickly. I love when they start to arch their back to stretch and it's a whole body experience. I wish I yawned like that sometimes. I would never want to go back, but it certainly makes me want to have more (not for a little while though!)

I am so enjoying this little man in my life. I'm trying to cherish every moment. The way he smells, his silly grin, the way he loves to bounce. He's already getting so much personality. I wonder what path his life will follow.
