Dear Lil Z-Bear,
Please don’t grow up too quickly. As grateful as I am that you are growing up so well and are a healthy, happy baby, it is also rather alarming to see that you are now fitting into size 2 diapers, that I find myself reaching in the bottom drawer of your dresser for the size 3 to 6 month and the 6 month outfits, and that we no longer need a newborn insert in your car seat, or your bathtub. I love that you reward my mere presence with smiles and that you have started to babble those beautiful words that sound sweet as honey. And I really love that you sleep through the night. But I miss those days when you would wake me up in the wee small hours of the morning, and it felt like you and I were the only two people in the world.
I love you so much Z-Bear.
