Mommy Musings

I always get a bit nostalgic on the 21st of the month.  LM was born January 21st so every 21st he is another month older.  
Today he is 19 months old.
I seriously feel like it was yesterday that we were being visited in the hospital by friends and family.  I feel like it was yesterday that I was getting up 2 and 3 times a night for those wonderful night time feedings.  But at the same time, I can’t imagine him any other way than he is now.
He’s silly and smart and fully of energy.  He’s constantly surprising us with what he knows and remembers.  He’s starting to communicate more and more every day and it’s like I have this little person with me, not just a toddler. 
I constantly feel so proud of him.  We’ve gone an ENTIRE WEEK with out a pacifier at all.  And as dependent on it as he seemed, he dropped it like it was nothing.  I couldn’t believe it and I just swell with pride whenever I tell someone about it.
I’m also constantly frustrated at the same time.  I think my most frequently used word is “NO!”.  He has fairly frequent tantrums both at home and in public.  He’s been hitting a lot lately which has resulted in multiple time outs.  Luckily, time outs seem to be effective and it’s also how we added the word “Sorry” to his vocabulary.  Although it comes out more like “Sar”. 
I look forward to the day when he will follow directions and understand that you can’t always run around when and where ever you want. (Especially in the mall!) When he knows that I’m getting him something and he’ll have it as soon as I’m ready instead of screaming until said time.
But I also want time to freeze, as all mommies do, and have him be this age, right now, forever.  He snuggles and gives kisses.  He giggles and gets silly when he’s sleepy.
He is, and will always be, my little man.
