With Lucy, who will soon turn 2, I just could not wait to see the next thing she would learn to do. I could not wait for her to sit up, eat solids, crawl and then walk.
With Adam, however, I am much more laid back - I feel like I already know what's ahead, kind of like a movie I have seen, so I'm not at the edge of my seat hah, so I am just enjoying the present, smelling the roses and cherishing every moment because babies grow so fast.
So what type of a parent are you? Impatiently excited or laid back?
I'm very excited for Genevieve to learn new things! Milestones. Getting teeth or eating solids. It's all very exciting! On the other hand, I already miss how little she was when she first came home! She is growing up so fast! She'll be 5 months in a few days!

I'm more laid back this time around. I actually DON'T want Cam hitting too many milestones right now. With your first, you are in such a hurry for them to roll over, sit up etc... I know how much easier it is though when they are completely immobile, so I'd be happy if Cam took her sweet loving time. Akadia was walking by 10 months and I haven't had a moments peace since then!
Definitely laid back. I was so anxious for my first to do everything, but with my second and this time I'm in no hurry. Especially this time knowing he's my last baby. I'm enjoying every second of him being my little baby.
also I feel that since this time it's a boy, he may one day grow apart from me (I imagine my daughter and I can always be close but what if my boy grows up to be this tough dude who hates mommy's kisses), so I'm taking advantage of the time now when he is so sweet and cuddly
I'm way more laid back in terms of milestones, but I'm a constant worrier this time too. It's the PP anxiety getting to me. So while I want her to go slowly, I often compare her to her siblings and worry she's not doing as well. It's all in my head though.
Your son will always want those snuggles, he might just act like he doesn't. My twelve year old sometimes acts like that, but he still needs me to be sweet with him anyway.
