No More A Baby

10 months now

All too soon, Daen's a baby no more.

I had been anxious to get him used to taking his bottle and falling asleep by himself. And now that he can, I miss feeding him to sleep in my arms.

Last night I tried to do so and he refused, preferring the comfort of his bed now. The irony!

One day he's 5 months, the next he's 10.

With Vera, not much changes day to day, and you can enjoy her at the stage she's in tomorrow and the day after.

With Daen, blink and you'll miss it.

His Name is Today
“Many of the things we need can wait.
The child cannot.
Right now is the time his bones are being formed,
his blood is being made, and his senses are being developed.
To him we cannot answer 'Tomorrow.'
His name is 'Today.'"
- Gabriela Mistral, Chilean Poet (1889-1957)
