All of a sudden, I realized that my little tiny newborn is not a little tiny newborn anymore.
With each new milestone, I feel torn. It is amazing to watch him literally grow right before my eyes - to master skills that he was clumsily attempting the day before, to grow more curious about the world around him. At the same time, I mourn the passing of each stage of babyhood that disappears behind us. Sometimes I feel like I'm going to be sending him off to college tomorrow.
And then I catch myself - or catch him, rather - and I realize we've still got ourselves a little time to enjoy this baby business.
