I'm the opposite I am dreading the day I have to go back to work and leave my baby. She is 4 months and I plan on staying home until she is atleast 1 year old. I do however get excited and can't wait till she says mama or says I love you.

I'm also the opposite. I can't believe he's turning 7 months. I hope time slows down because I know I can never go back to those days when he was a newborn. I can't believe how time flies so fast for me. It makes me so sad.

No way my dd is growing up way too fast, my dh has even said we'll have to have another baby just because she's growing up faster than he wants. I personally love every stage, I like seeing her developing into a new person everyday. She's almost 5months and is already drinking from a regular cup, that is crazy, she also is trying to feed herself. I just love her to pieces and love seeing her grow. I just decided yesterday that I am no longer working at all so I can stay w/ her as much as possible, I don't want to miss a thing.

I'm totally opposite you. My daughter is almost 6.5 months and the time is flying by way too fast. I was listening to the song "My Little Girl" from Tim McGraw on the radio today and I started crying. I know I've mentioned this like a million times but I don't remember the first 3 weeks of my baby's life very well because I was in the hospital in tons of pain and on so many pain relievers that i could be having a conversation with somebody and my eyes would just roll back in my head and I'd be out. I would give anything to have those 3 weeks with her and it taught me to never take one single moment with her for granted.

Honey you better enjoy this age whole you can. They are only babies once..they are " kids " the rest of their lives. I long for the day that i see a " baby " again. Your son is at the perfect stage in life that is the funnest of all.

I can relate Danielle. While I totally see the point everyone else is making, I do wish, dd was a little more independent. I miss the days of sleeping in, eating out without having to hurry back before 'bedtime', and stuff like that. I know that when my dd is a little older, I won't have it the way it use to be before she was born, but there has to be a little more freedom, I would think. Maybe I am naive, but I can hope!

Absolutely not! I just want mine to stay the way they are now!!! At least for a little while. I have a 9 year old and I feel that time went so fast! I wish I could go back. I can't even beleive my dd will be 4 months either. It goes so fast. Just treasure every moment you have now. Trust me, you'll want to turn back the clock later:-) And no, you are not weird either!

lol haven't you ever heard of the terrible twos???????? I have a son in the terrible twos and a daughter who is 7 months, I think I enjoy the baby days more lol. Yes, my son says mom and gives me hugs and is the cutest thing EVER but when he decides to throw a temper tantrum in the middle of the mall, it's not as fun anymore lol. Love your son up, one day he is going to go out and get girlfriends and get married, you'll miss the cuddly baby days!

I am opposite. I was in a state of depression a week before my dd turned one! I was, and still am so sad she is grwoing up so fast. I remember when I couldn't wait for her to roll, then crawl, then talk, then walk... now I just want her to lay in my arms and let me rock her and cuddle!! :(


sahmof3 - January 30

I was like you Danielle. Don't get me wrong... I (mostly) enjoyed their baby days, but I'm more of an older kid person than a baby person. My kids are now 6 1/2, 3 and 18 months and I'm loving it! Actually, the 1-year-old stage has been my absolute favorite so far with each of mine. I do think I'll be a little sad when my youngest is 2. My last two were only 17 months apart, though, so I guess lugging babies around and having 2 in diapers for so long wore me out as far as babies go ;-) It is nice to have 2 kids potty-trained (can't wait for the 3rd!) and to be able to go places and everyone can walk... don't have to worry about carrying a baby everywhere, finding a place to b___stfeed, etc. I do feel like I have some more freedom!


Danielle19 - January 30

Iam more of a kid person then baby person, i just feel bad when my son is screaming and i have no idea exacly whats bothering him, when there older they can tell you, im guessing in 10 years i'll will really miss these days

When my daughter was a baby, i loved it and didn't want her to grow up too fast. now that she's 3 and i have a 6 month old son, i find myself thinking, "i can't wait until he can walk and talk!". maybe it's because with my first one it was just me and her and i didn't have another child to tend to. i don't get that "one on one" time with the baby that i had with her. and i have to say, she is so enjoyable now that she can carry a conversation, and i can watch her imagination grow. they're so much fun at 3 years old.... and i'm anxious to see how my little boy is at that age.
