Overnight Growth Spurt

My beautiful boy


1st time on tummy mat

7 weeks

This coming Friday Rylan will be 2 months old. It is so hard to believe that my baby is growing so fast. I have been looking back at the pictures from the day he was born and it really hurts to see how much he has changed and grown. I know all you other moms out there know what I'm talking about! I still remember him fitting in the crook of my arm and now instead of fitting in the crook, he has just taken over the arm completely! Where does the time go?? When did he decide to start growing?? It's almost as if it happened overnight, because I don't remember any in between. It's like he grew from 6lbs 7oz to an almost 12lbs "just-like-that"! How depressing it is....but I have to say he is a lot more fun and becoming more active and smiling a lot more. He has even laughed - that was the cutest thing ever! You really enjoy them when they are tiny by holding and cuddling them but you want them to grow in a way so they can interact with you and play. But I don't know if I want it that bad!! I love cuddling him and knowing he wants me to. It's the grandest feeling. Soon enough he will be wanting to try his independence and do stuff on his own and it's going to kill me. But I know it will have to come and some point. He will always be my little baby boy though. Nothing will ever change that. No one loves him more than Mommy and Daddy...he's our little sunshine and ray of hope. God truly blessed us when He gave us this little miracle.
