Mr. H Jr is already one month old, and we can’t believe how quickly the time has passed. The other day when I realized that the newborn days are officially behind us, I admittedly became a bit emotional. Little Buddy’s cry has already changed from that helpless little yelp that brought tears to my eyes when I saw his face for the first time to a loud wail that makes it sound like the world is ending. He still has his infant startle reflex, something I had never noticed in any other baby I had been around, but it’s not as strong as it was during those first two weeks.
Parenthood has been a big adjustment, and it still doesn’t feel real to hold the baby in my arms that I carried inside for so many months, but we are in love with our little guy. Even on the difficult days, I remind myself to savor every moment. The days are long, but the years are short.
