This is the face of a baby that is growing up way too fast. Why is it that the last baby never wants to be a baby for very long? He is 10 months old and wants to do everything that his older brothers do.
What he doesn’t want to is be “Mommy’s baby”. He doesn’t want to be held or rocked, unless he’s very, very tired. He doesn’t want to eat baby food. Instead, he eats cut up pieces of whatever we are having even though he doesn’t have one single tooth. And, forget about bottles. If given a choice, he’ll take his brother’s sippy cup in a heart beat.
On one hand I’m very sad about my “grown up little baby”. He’s my last and I wanted more time to sniff his little head while he slept and cuddle with him while he’s awake. On the other hand, I’m amazed every day at how much he’s growing and learning. No matter how much he grows, or how old he gets, he will always be “my baby”.
