I can’t believe that Greyson is already 9 months old. Whoever said “the nights are long, but the years are short,” was so right. Greyson is growing up before our eyes and I wish I could freeze every milestone he hits and every moment we have together. I feel so lucky to be his mom and he certainly has opened up my eyes to what really matters in this crazy life. Greyson is hitting all of his 9 month milestones and is growing up before my eyes.
Greyson has now started crawling, makes kissing noises, and can sit up from lying on his belly. He is always on the move and gets frustrated when he can’t do more things. I see the twinkle in his eye when he does something he is proud of, like pulling himself up while holding on to my arm. He says “mama, baba, and dada” and I swear I’ve heard him say our dog’s name: Una.
With all of these changes, it makes me sad I can’t be with him every minute of every day. I know it is good for him to experience different people and become flexible, but my heart aches each and every time I have to leave for work. I’m thankful that the summer is upon us and that I will be able to be home with him for the summer. We have plans to go swimming, go to the zoo, and go to a new aquarium that is opening in a neighboring town. I can’t wait to soak up all those moments.
What are some other things we can do this summer? I am looking for some arts and crafts ideas or some sensory things. I want to get a water table for our deck because Greyson loves the water!
