Looking Back, 16 Months Ago....
I Absolutely Love Toddler-hood right now, but I am missing the baby time occasionally.
Its daunting to think about starting over again with another baby.
Life is fairly easy with a well-behaved 16 month old and I love the time I have with her right now.
Newborns are definitely a LOT of work compared to toddler.
But we are thinking of having another little one soon and to be honest, it scares me a little.
Starting all over again, when I've come this far with DD....
To be honest, Toddlers are so much more fun! But on the other hand, newborns are great for snuggling, which I don't get with my Toddler except for the brief nursing session and bedtime closeness.
My DD is so much like her Mommy....completely independent, stubborn, determined and outgoing.
And has never been a "Cuddle Baby" as her Grammie tends to say, and its true.
She doesn't like to be held or cuddled for the most part unless nursing.
But lately she has taken a liking to sitting next to me on the couch which is nice.
But I guess Toddlers and newborns both have their advantages, and I think we miss that tiny about of time we get with them when they are little. They grow so dang fast! Which I both love and hate.
Its been a Blast watching my DD grow and change, all for the better, and seeing her personality develop and watch her become the person she is.
But even as I type this, I'm getting all choked up thinking about having another baby and then it won't be just me and my DD anymore. We have such a close bond and the time together is priceless. Its hard to think of another baby interfering with our time together, but I know it will work out fine. Its just a lot to think about. But thankfully, I have plenty of time to come to terms with it. Who knows how long it will take to get preggo next. It took us a year the first time, and with Hubby being gone at trainings lately, and the upcoming move and added stress, it should give me the extra time I feel I need for now.
But who knows...I guess we shall see!
I know this is supposed to be "Wordless Wednesday" and I try to stick to that...but I wanted to share a little bit with you today.
