For months I was excited at the thought that my little man would soon be mobile, I couldn’t wait for him to start crawling.
He now crawls and I wish he didn’t. Does that make me a bad mum? No, I just underestimated how hard everything would become once he was finally on the move.
Gone are the days of plonking him down (safely) and running to the toilet. Laying in bed with him and he would just lay here next to me.
My god things changed, I leave the room, he follows me. I sit down to play with him and he goes for every single thing he’s not allowed to touch or play with. I try to cuddle him and he just wriggles and wants to be put down to explore and get into mischief.
Nooooo, bring my baby backkkkk. I honestly cannot believe how quickly they change & develop. 2 weeks ago he wasn’t even crawling or trying then within a week he did it once and now nothing will stop him. He sits up from laying in his cot (so annoying) and is now using things to try to pull himself up and stand (and is often successful).
Life’s funny how you wish for something and then when it happens you wish it hadn’t. I love that he’s more mobile and is learning new skills which excite me, I just miss my wee baby who was so reliant on me.
Let them be little, you’ll miss it when they’re not.
