I have an odd confession to make: My 7-almost-8-month-old baby’s teeth bother me. WHY??!!!
He is my fourth baby, but I have been in (serious) denial that he will grow up. As if willing him to stay a baby would work! I didn’t see head control, sitting up, and seal-flopping (like crawling only without the hand-knee coordination) as growing up things, just make-my-life-slightly-easier things.
A week ago I saw the little teeth attempting to reach the surface, and a couple days ago they erupted. I kept thinking, he’s too young for teeth! Then I’d remember that he’s almost eight months. Where did the time go? My willing him to stay small was working for a while then suddenly he has teeth and is close to his first birthday!
I guess the fact that we are done having kids has really made me feel the need to cling to our last baby’s “babyhood”.
Just my random thought of the night 🙂
