My soon to be toddler

Have you ever just looked at your baby and realize that he's slowly becoming less baby-ish? It's bittersweet. When Wyatt was first born I had a major case of the PP's (also known as postpartum depression, but PP's sounds cuter). I felt like this little tiny needy thing was holding me back. I obviously got through it and I've always adored my son, but it was still a weird mix of emotions. It's amazing how long ago that feels. Wyatt is 10 and a half months old already and I'm already starting to sorta mentally plan his first birthday. I mean, what the hell? I'm about to have a toddler. And I think he's starting to look like a toddler too.




Now I'm really wishing I could turn back time. I don't want my baby to grow up. I like him being small and dependent on me. :)

  1. Oh my gosh, those gums!! He is so cute!
    I totally relate. It took me about 7 months to feel somewhat normal after he was born, and now that Killi is 9 months, with teeth and almost walking, I feel like he went from newborn to almost toddler too quickly. How i miss the days when he'd just lay there! Now he feels almost like a kid! Aww.

  2. Well enjoy it while it lasts...although my mom would say something like just because he's becoming a toddler, doesn't mean that he's growing up. He still needs you!

  3. That second picture is ALL GUMS - LOVE IT!!! The first year goes by so quickly. And just wait - it goes even faster with the 2nd one! I think the toddler stage takes a little longer to get through. I can't get over how cute your little guy is!

  4. I totally feel this too Jess! Some days I look at Henry and think, "how did you get so big...so quickly?" Ugh.

    Wyatt will always depend on you, just in different ways as he grows up. We're not sure we want another kid (honestly, could I handle another Henry right now??) but I will miss having a little tiny baby that needs me to snuggle him all the time.

    Btw, why do little boys grow out of that snugly stage so freaking fast?! Seriously, Henry already pushes my face away whenever I try and kiss him while he's nursing. Boo :(

  5. Oh it's totally bitter sweet! So fun to watch the learn and grow- but so difficult to watch your BABY grow up and become more independent! He sure does make a cutie toddler though :-)

  6. Yes. I just learned that Averie is too old to take showers with me. Wanna know how I found out? She told me that "Down There", I look like a monster. Yup. Too old.

  7. yeah, you need to stop talking like that..I'm feeling it too. Mine is 15 months. I can't handle this growing thing again. On top of that, my 9 year old is looking like a pre-teen. What... when did I sign up for that?!

  9. Wyatt is pretty much the cutest baby/toddler ever!! And he looks so much like you- especially in the eyes! I feel like Jackson is growing up way too fast also- so sad to know we can never get the baby stage back again. But here's to new adventures with our boys!

  10. Oh my gosh, just wait till he turns 3 and you can't find baby cheeks anymore! And then you start seeing a little man looking up at you...and, oh, yeah, it's hard. :(
