You know when they say that once they start crawling walking isn’t too far behind. Well, let me just say they are right on the money because what felt like last week I had a new crawler has now evolved Into a wiggly knee newborn baby horse who wants to take steps with this brand new pair of legs.
My heart was racing, Peyton was endlessly staring and our friend Holly was on the other side of P. Her shaky knees became strong like An oak tree and she then defined her place in this world. One step for moving out of the crawler stage and one more step to making mama cry. Why do I feel as if my pregnancy was years on end and this stage of her life just flew by? I guess it is truly right when they say
“life goes by faster when you are having fun.”
If waking up to change a diaper, getting through the granting of sandpaper on my skin referring to breastfeeding, the first month of Paighton life. Then yes we had lots of it!! Learning to run on no hours of sleep while your sleepy baby naps all day. You know when they say
“Sleep when your baby sleeps”
Obviously had a cook, maid and a personal assistant. Because when Paighton sleeps I try to do as much as I can. Even if it’s watching as many YouTube videos as I can in the hour she’s asleep. I now have to stop and rewind, sit down, press play, get back up. Grab P from the kitchen, sit back down, press play and within 5 seconds I’m stopping the video and having to go chase after her. She knows it too because when she hears me she tends to look behind, laugh and crawl faster.
Who actually knew how fast babies can crawl! Not only that, who knew what you can find when you’re always on the ground. I clean my house, but let’s be honest life gets to you. And sometimes you don’t want to clean which leads paighton to find a small piece of chicken that’s been dried out for ages. I know what your thinking, how do you not see that on the floor when you’re cleaning. Let me tell you ladies and gentlemen paighton likes to hide things under our couch. Everything from toys to piece of chicken we give her at dinner. Which leads us to find it this day. Oh, the joys of having a crawler are brilliant.
I thought that the crawling stage was gonna be a tad bit easier. Oh, boy was that a slap on the knee because well…..it’s by far. She’s everywhere!!! Who knew that she could be in this one-stop than turn and be across the house in another. Thank god we don’t have an upstairs because I would Probably find her just chilling on the roof, and putting those two teeth to work on that piece of dehydrated chicken.
Here she stands on her own two feet that God bless me with to create. In this moment I was trying to keep my cool from being excited. Because We were outside of the church service doors because paighton had wanted to be active and not confined to a seat. Our baby has started to walk. On June 9, 2018, I had my baby shower for her a year later she took her first four steps at church and another four steps to our best friend holly aka mama holly that night. Before you know it she’s gonna be running this town.
