As a parent, the days are long, but the years are so, so very short. You blink and those first few and seemingly never ending sleepless nights are over. They are replaced with first steps and high chairs and smash cakes. And it doesn’t matter how much you think you’re ready for the baby days to be distancing themselves in the rear view mirror, you actually truly miss those middle of the night feedings and the leg rolls that go on for days. Because those longing feelings of the sweet and innocent baby days are juxtaposed with the fear of the unknown….the ultimate milestone of turning One and the days that follow. But you embrace it all knowing that it’s going to be alright. And it is going to be absolutely perfect.
