Looking down at you, I stare in disbelief. Could it be that it has already been 5 months since the first day I met you? 5 months since I gave birth to you, my beautiful little boy.
Time has gone both fast and slow. Some days I want time to slow down so I can catch up with you, so I can appreciate every new thing you do, every new thing you discover. Other times I want time to speed up so you can learn to walk, learn to talk. Patience, I tell myself. One day I’ll miss all these moments, your dad’s and my excitement when you learn something new. “Siempre va aprender algo nuevo” “He will always learn something new”, my Mom tells me, but it’s not everyday that you’ll take your first step or speak your first word. It will be exciting when you learn something new at school, but these moments are special.
Our journey together has been amazing and I can’t wait to continue watching you grow.
