Are you one of those parents that religously filled out Baby’s 1st books and documented everything when your child was a newborn?
I was totally that Mom with my first born. I documented everything about the pregnancy and my daughter’s first year. The pregnancy notes may have even covered the topic of sex. Cadence is going to smack me when she gets older when she decides to sit down and rummage through her box of memories.
However when it came down to my pregnancy with my son and his 1st year I wasn’t as on the ball. Any notes I have would be documented on this blog. Nothing in writing in a little notebook.
Part of me wonders if I didn’t document the pregnancy because I had done so with my pregnancy prior to him and I lost the baby. I just don’t think I could have endured that pain again.
My son has had a huge word explosion recently. His vocabulary has really grown. Have I mentioned he’s only 12 months?! Some of his first words have been:
- Hi (if he says it really fast it sounds more like hi’s or even ass)
- Bubba (bottle)
- Baby (No! He’s not trying to hint at something. This baby making shop is temporarily closed!)
- Not a word, but if you ask him where his head is… he’ll put both hands on it.
I could swear there is more on the list, but those are all that are coming to me at the moment.
If one thing is apparent… Cameron has learned so much from his big sister.
