The other day Greg looked at me and said, "Honey, they say these are the most precious moments. They are so fleeting and they grow up so fast. Before you know it, we will be missing these baby moments." I looked at him and said, "No, I don't think so...I don't think I'll miss her baby ways. I really just want her to be 2 years old already..." Hey, I'm just being honest. I'm not gonna lie. Sure, Dillon is sooo cute. She makes the cutest baby noises and is so cute when she is sleeping and then stretching and making these cute grunting/stretching noises. My favorite though, which I think already she has outgrown, is this tiniest of "HMMPH" noises she makes. When she has been crying BIG, like when she's gotten her diaper changed and she's starving and I finally put her on my boob, she's still huffy and then she blows air out of her nose and sort of lets out this cute, high pitched little HMMPH!
At the end of the day, as cute as this child is she is SO DEPENDENT on me that I can hardly stand it. I can't even go to the bathroom when I want because if no one is around, I have to hold her. She can't hold her head up yet even. So, yeah I can't wait til she gets a bit older.


  1. Belinda,
    Newsflash...when Dillon is 2, you will wish she was 4...I also loved lots of the sweet, fun moments when T was younger, but also wished that TL was older...even friends gave me great advice...just to be's helped a bit, although it doesn't always keep my mind from wandering as I'm playing Thomas the Train again... :-D Loretta

  2. Heheh! And you have another one coming! You are craaazy!!

  3. I know! I am not blissfully ignorant about newborns and motherhood anymore. In lots of ways, I hear it's easier cuz changing a diaper is no longer a difficult, confusing thing. But ah, with TL AND a new one...oh boy...I'm preparing for the worst, hoping for the best! Your account of early motherhood totally reminds me of my early days. It's the most wonderful thing to have a new child and it sucks ass, too! Wish you had blogged BEFORE I had TL. It takes someone honest like you to tell it like it is!!
    PS - I love having a new blog to follow AND it keeps me in touch with my Bel! :-D

  4. Hahah! And I love your blog! I can't wait until Dillon is old enough to be as cute and smart as TL! The Porsche thing kills me! Waaay too smart.
