So after he masters crawling in 10 minutes, he decides that that's not good enough, so he stands up!
Oh my goodness. My baby is growing. My oldest two sons walked at 10 months old so I'm really hoping Caleb doesn't follow the trend. Whyyyyyy do kids have to keep growing up so fast? I know it's a blessing. But I am not looking forward to my kids going into teens and then moving out. I know I'll have a teen in 3 years but I try not to think about it.
You know, when I was a teen I DID NOT like kids. I ONLY babysitted for the money. For some reason I always attracted kids to me. I never tried to. One time I opened the door to my church and I heard "Jennyyyy!" by a whole herd of kids. They all ran to me and hugged me until I fell down. I hated it! I just wasn't a kid friendly person. I mean, I was NICE to them. I just had no desire to babysit, volunteer in church nursery. Nothing.
Then the miracle happened after I got married just 11 months later.
I found out I was pregnant with my first baby.
It took me a bit to get used to changing diapers, making bottles, hardly sleeping. It took a LOT of my selfishness to die. I certainly didn't really want anymore for some time because I could not get over the fact that my sleep was deprived. Then something else happened when Chaz was ONLY 3 months old.
I found out I was pregnant again.
I still remember my dad saying he was worried about me. He knows me well. He knew I was still the same Jenny. Still the same girl that cared only about her needs more than anyone else's.
