baby steps

I love little babies. I love their squooshy cheeks, the dimples in their hands, their eyes...ohhh I just love babies. Probably why I have so many of them. LOL

As my children have grown, I've become in no hurry to get them through the baby stage. It is such a short period of time. So many parents spend the first year of baby's life anxious for them to walk and talk. Then, they spend the next 17 years telling them to sit down and shut up!

The only stage I'm ever anxious to get through is the terrible 2s. *shudder*

I'm really enjoying having big kids and doing things with them. But, I'm also really enjoying my last little baby. The problem is, she didn't get the memo that she's supposed to stay a baby. She thinks she's a big girl. She can throw tantrums. She says "Hi, Daddy!" And, that's the only thing she says. And, she only says it to Daddy. I've gotten one "mama." When she wants something, she smacks her lips and points. It's very cute. I mean, what baby isn't "very cute?" Every baby is!

Her birthday is in three months. And yesterday, she took steps. Not many. And only to daddy--every time he turned away to look at something else! Such a stinker! Nine months and one week old and taking steps.

A few first time moms I know are all excited and "yay, Millie!" The experienced moms are offering their condolences.

So little miss is now taking baby steps. *sob*
