Growing up

I was starting to feel like I would never have a moment to myself again, and then Willa changed overnight. Suddenly, she can sit up without help, and she even stays entertained by herself if I put toys in front of her. I know she will be mobile soon and I will have to run around after her, but eventually a new phase will arrive and I will be able to trust her to be on her own for short periods of time. Charlotte has already become quite self-sufficient, getting dressed and going to the bathroom by herself (most of the time).

When I see Willa growing up before my eyes, it is a reminder to enjoy these tiring days as much as I can. There are days when I am so exhausted and I long for a time when I will be able to leave the house and go for a walk by myself. But I don’t want to wish away their childhood. One day soon, I will look back and wonder how it all went by so quickly.
