Happy New Year!

Happy New Year! We're getting back to reality over here after a wonderful Christmas with family and a little beach getaway to ring in the new year. We spent a few nights down in Seagrove beach and it was so wonderful to slow down and relax, just the three of us. Max and Mills got such special uninterrupted time together and our little man is just changing so rapidly before our eyes. Everyone always said "they grow up so fast" but my god they weren't kidding. Just since last week, Mills has two teeth popping through, he has started sitting up on his own and is fascinated with touching everything in sight. With so many firsts, it got me thinking about all of the things we've done for the last time with him (like his last sink bath - big boy loves the tub now!) and how much he has changed which made my mama heart so happy and nostalgic all at once. On one hand, I miss those newborn grunts and swaddling my tiny boy and on the other, it's so amazing to get to know his little personality and watch him learn and explore the world around him, and of course I think of all of the mamas out there who would give anything to see their babies grow and change. So along with my typical new year's resolutions of healthy eating, exercising blah blah my goal for this year, and for all of motherhood, is to cherish the stages and moments as they happen because each stage, good and bad, is precious and fleeting and I'm so grateful to be mama to this growing, changing boy. Here's to a new year full of savoring the special moments, big and small.
