Not such a Baby Anymore

Lately I've been noticing that Max is really starting to grow into a little boy. He's becoming more and more independent, he talks like a normal little human being, & he can do so many things for himself.


The other day when I was getting ready to go to work, Sean came into the ensuite and said that my sister (who currently lives with us) had offered to take Max to daycare with her girls. It would have made things easier (I'm always running late for work after dropping Sean off at the train and Max off at daycare), but I said no because I like the job of dropping him off in the mornings. I finished getting ready and went out to the car, and there was Max climbing into his seat in my sister's car. I looked at Sean and he said 'Max really wants to go with Jenny'.



I stuck my head into the car and Max said to me 'bye Mumma, I go daycare with Jenny now'. At the moment I was so full of pride that he is growing up and learning to be independent, but so sad that my baby didn't feel like he needed me.


 

Some days I would love to be able to freeze time and have him as my little baby just for an extra couple of months. I love this little monster to pieces :)

  1. These little moments that fill you with pride, yet break your heart at the same time! They do grow much too quickly.
    I love the Max's concentration in these shots, and his adorable curls!

    1. I know what you mean Milina, I'm so happy that he's growing up into a beautiful boy, but I would love to have him as my baby for just that little bit longer :)

  2. I know exactly what you mean! What a little cutie... wouldn't it be great to freeze frame them, just for a lil while? x

  3. I know exactly what you mean. At times you can't wait for phases to pass and then other times you want to freeze time. For me, I know Lily is our last child so I try to stop and enjoy 'her' moments even more than I usually would.

  4. i try not to worry too much about time passing so quickly because each new stage is so much fun. but it's certainly a bit harder letting go with the littler one. max is a cutie!

    1. That's so true Kara, it seems that as every perfect phase ends another, even more beautiful one begins. I think that is part of the magic of motherhood :)

  5. He still loves you!! It's actually great that he is comfortable with your sister. I'm sure that Max is learning a lot from seeing two great women in his life.

  6. This morning Dave's parents came to give us a little break, cause i've been so sick this week. We thought he would kick and scream, but instead he put his back pack (which is bigger then him) on and waddled down the hall way then lifted his arms up for them to put him in the car then happily waved to us both as they drove out of the drive way. I was both sad and proud i can't believe he'll be 2 next week :(

  8. I know what you mean! My sister has a newborn now and I can't believe how fast mine have grown into "little people". It's making me slow down a little and try to enjoy the moments a bit more.
