When you are pregnant you can't wait for that baby to come, but then once they do you will never again in your life get sleep, okay maybe someday.
When you are stuck in the sleepless nights of a newborn, you dream and wish for the day they sleep through the night.
Then they do but they begin crawling and getting into things.
You wish for the day when they will just stop putting everything in their mouths- but before you know it it will be a day when you won't always like the things coming out of their mouths.
This last week we finally transitioned Ryder to a big boy bed. He never tried to crawl out of his crib, in fact he was perfectly content there; or would have been had his big sister not talked to him about how awesome it is to have a big boy bed.
So there I was snapping pictures, all while mourning the fact that my baby was growing up.... but really I wouldn't want it any other way as the alternate is much much worse.
So motherhood, all those little milestones that we look forward to and celebrate, break our heart a little.
The Joys of Motherhood.
