My Favorite Things

Braden is now a 14 month old who is running all over the house, feeding himself and starting to hit. (ugh) I feel like I am losing my baby, all those "baby" things are happening less and less and it flat out makes this Mama sad. Don't get me wrong, I love many of the new things he is doing and the growing independence but there's so much I miss already. Some things I don't want to forget:

*Open mouth baby kisses (does it get any better than that?)

*Holding a cuddly baby who tucks his face into my neck as I sing him to sleep at night.

*Baby sign language. So cute. My favorites are please and milk.

*A chubby dimply baby butt running away from me while getting the bath water ready.

*The way he says "Ma-MAH" - the MAH part is loud and high pitched.

*Nursing. I can't believe I am saying this or the fact that I am even still nursing in general. It seems the past couple weeks he has started to lose interest, only really wanting to nurse at night. I will miss it when it's over.

Oh those sweet drooly open mouth kisses and I'll always miss when I would hold Aidyn and he would fold up like a little frog and cuddle me.
Aidyn was at home today with Ethan and when I called to check in, Aidyn answered and had a conversation with me. They lose a baby trait here and there and fill it in with something just as cute. My heart could have exploded that very second. They grow so fast.

I love the open mouth baby kisses. There is just not much better than that.
All my kids nursed for 14 months and then were done. I don't know if it was me or them.

This just almost made me cry!! I have a 2 1/2 year old and I know what you mean. It is so sad when they start growing up. You just want to keep them babies forever.

Oh I hated having to ween Stunt Man at 14 months due to my cancer. It was so hard. neither of us were ready, but cold turkey was how it had to be. Treasure every last night nursing...it goes by so fast. My favorite baby sign was milk and more. Love those too.

You are so kind, thanks for "stopping by" to check on us. Life is great, busy, but great. I love your list. It is great to capture those memories, becuase they are gone before we know it. You kids are SO lucky to have you for their mom! I must say, that I think I am going to "steal" this post idea for a future post! Have a great night...

Those are all great things. I love open mouth baby kisses and dimply butts!! Sadly Lauren doesn't like me to rock her to sleep anymore but you better believe that I took advantage of all the snuggling I could get while she was sick!
