It is exciting to watch him get more and more independent but a little scary. What if he won't need his mommy anymore? I know he still will but the more milestones he reaches the closer we get to the day he won't need me. And I know it's my job to teach him how to reach that point but I am going to whine just a little about it on the way.
It has been harder than I thought it would be to leave him with people during the day while I am at work. I miss hearing his little giggle as he climbs into boxes and pulls paper out of the recycling bin but there is nothing like picking him up and watching that huge smile break out on his face and see him crawl to meet me as fast as his little knees will carry him and the HUGE hug that comes when I pick him up to say hello.
