Where did the last 5 months go?

And when did I stop counting in days and weeks?  It seems like just yesterday that I was answering how pregnant I was in weeks (Most conversations went something like, “I’m 35 weeks pregnant, yes I have a few more weeks to go, even though I am the size of a house. Thank you.”) Then in late September I was counting down the days until I met my baby or the number of days I went past my due date.   

Then I was welcoming visitors into my house and gushing over my newborn who was 10 days old already or going back to work and telling everyone about my 6-week old munchkin. 

But now? My squishy little newborn is a full-fledged BABY.  Who babbles and giggles, rolls around in her crib, pulls my hair, puts EVERYTHING in her mouth and wears shoes.  She’s five months old and I would have to do the math to figure out how many weeks or days old she is.

How is time going so fast that I don’t know how many days it has been since I met the person who stole my heart right from my chest?

  1. OH MY GOODNESS, ME TOO! (Also, she is soooo cute! I love that last photo!)

    Also, I second what Shauna said. But I’d like to add that time also stands still when you’re pushing out a baby. I felt like pushing lasted five lifetimes. It still amazes me that it was only a little over half an hour.

  2. The bear pics are so cute!

  3. How funny! My daughter asked me last night how many months old she was. I had to do the math. 84 months old. I don’t remember when I stopped telling people how old she was in months and I was surprised the answer wasn’t more. It seems like she has been here forever. I can’t remember life without her.

    You have one adorable baby!

  4. She’s really beautiful! You’re so blessed! Hopefully time slows down a little bit for you so you can really enjoy the next… 18-22 years or so. 😛

  5. Oh yea … time flys fast unless you’re on a friggin’ airplane 🙂
