That's how quickly it seems like this kid is growing up. And it makes me so sad!! I'm not ready. It's strange b/c I don't remember feeling quite like this with the other two. And my theory is that now that I have an almost 5 year old and a 3 year old...I'm kind of experiencing the reality of how fast they grow. Everyone tells you "it goes so fast" and you BELIEVE them...but to experience it, even at this stage, is different than to just be told. Thursday morning at the pedi, we were in the elevator with a woman and her two kids..the son was probably 16 or so and she looked at Aidric longingly and asked him to press "P2" for her. And then looked (up) at her son and said, "I remember". When she caught a glimpse of Cormac in the stroller, I honestly thought she was ready to take off with him. I'm quite certain she wouldn't want to turn back the clock all the way. But to just experience it again for a little while? I think she would have jumped at the chance.
Enough of my rambling though...the reason for all of this in the first place is this little (big) guy! He's 5 and a half months old and his first two teeth came in this past week. I'm behind on my blogging, but he's already had green beans, bananas, sweet potatoes, applesauce and avocado. He loves to eat! At the pedi last week, he weighed 17 lbs. 2 oz. (WOW!!!) Finally, just yesterday, I decided to see how he would do with sitting up and he shocked me when he could do it!! Not long stretches of time, but nonetheless...he's sitting up!!! Wasn't he born YESTERDAY????
