It’s been a long day for the Dietrich household, so I’m going to keep this short and sweet.
This baby boy is officially 10 months old today. I’m slightly freaking out inside. I’m starting to look at birthday party themes and I’m getting all kinds of emotional thinking about my baby getting older. He is so full of life, my little adventurer, crawling or walking with a push walker anywhere and everywhere! He is obsessed with books and reading. Husband must read about 10 books to him every night- he loves it! He eats everything, talks & hums constantly, always wants to be out and about around town ;)… he really enjoys his music classes and play groups- so many new friends!
He’s still a fussy mess, not easy by any means, but when this boy breaks out into a fit of giggles from bouncing on pillows, or daddy making a funny face at him, it’s the most precious sound… it makes all the challenges of being a new mom float away.
Bennett, I hope to keep the memories of you gripping onto me like a baby koala and nuzzling your little face into my neck, close to my heart forever. I want to remember how desperately you crawl across the floor to reach my legs to pull yourself up and hold your arms out to be held. I know these moments will not last long, and I’m savoring them for as long as you will let me. I love you, my baby.
