Elijah :: 11 months

9:13:00 AM

I can't believe that my sweet little baby is now 11 months old! In just one short month I will have a ONE YEAR OLD, and that is just too much! I feel like time is going way too fast and I can't keep up. I look back at pictures and wonder where my little peanut went?

Elijah is just the sweetest! He loves, loves, loves his big brother (sometimes his brother doesn't always like this) and I am loving watching their bond grow as they can do more and more things together. He is curious, strong and just as stubborn and smiley as his big bro. I am going to be in for a wild ride with these 2 boys!

You forget how sweet little guys are once they become toddlers. For the most part, Elijah is happy all of the time (excluding when tired and hungry) and when he is not, he is very easily distracted. Unlike toddlerhood, which is full of temper tantrums and meltdowns and not everything can be fixed with a handful of Cheerios. 

It's amazing how fast this chapter of their life goes, yet it seems like forever in the moment. I really am just trying to soak up every single minute, because one day they won't need me (or want me) to tuck them in to bed or sit and play Legos, and it will be a sad day. But as our pastor at church said on Sunday, "If we don't push them into what they don't want to do or what they don't know, they will never grow." And that my friends is all we want as parents, is for our children to grow and thrive and become extraordinary parts of the world around them. As much as I love my little baby birds, there will be nothing greater than to see them fly!
