10 Weeks - Baby Steps in High Heels

10 Weeks

A month ago, I cringed every time somebody would warn me to ‘enjoy these moments, because the pass so quickly’. I was exhausted, overwhelmed, and annoyed! But, today I’m singing a different tune. I’m not sure what has changed in the last couple of weeks, but I am starting to feel like I have at least an ounce or two of control over my life again. Perhaps being back at work and having Baby in daycare forces a routine that allows for some level of sanity. Don’t get me wrong, I’m still exhausted, just not quite as overwhelmed. And, now when I look back, I can’t believe how quickly the time has passed and how much Baby has changed!

How has my little girl gone from this tiny little peanut who barely filled out a preemie-sized onesie ….
To my big, strong, growing baby …

To be fair, she’s still weighs just about 9-pounds, and some newborn-sized clothes are even too big for her at 10-weeks-old. But, she’s a growing girl! She smiles and plays like a pro. I can’t believe that she couldn’t even do that (smile) just mere weeks ago.

So, I owe everyone an apology for rolling my eyes when you would warn me to

Cherish these moments …
Enjoy it while it lasts …
They grow so fast …

It’s all true, and it's only been 10 weeks! Baby is well on her way to the 3-month mark, and I feel like she was just born yesterday. As much as I eagerly await the days when she’ll sleep for longer stretches at night and be able to do just a few things on her own (you know, like hold up her own head), part of me wishes she would just stay my tiny, little baby forever!
