Baby SoS: 10 Weeks

by tinysneakers

My dear son,

10 week old baby

Every once in awhile as we walk or play together, I catch a glimpse of you that makes me see you as a little boy, not just my baby. You’re already growing too fast. I look at pictures from your first weeks and I already can’t believe how much you’ve changed. But instead of feeling nostalgic for your itty bitty newborn days, those moments make me look forward to all the days you grow. I imagine and wonder what you’ll be like as a toddler; a little tyke; a teenager.

Will you run to the window to catch a glimpse of the military jet flying overhead when you hear the engine roar, or will you roll your eyes and say “it’s just a plane dad”?

Will you stand on the pitcher’s mound, warming up your arm to throw a perfect curve ball, or will you wander the outfield looking for dandelions?

Will you love soccer or hockey or gymnastics? Will you love 70’s rock like your dad? Will you like science or zoo animals or building model rockets? Will you think your mom’s cool and let her be seen with you in public, or will you duck away in embarrassment when I try to give you a kiss in front of your friends?

As much as I can’t wait to learn the answers to these questions and more, I wouldn’t mind if you’d take your time.

Slow down kid, you’re growing up too fast.

Oh my gosh. So beautiful! I am teary eyed reading this b/c it is exactly the thoughts that go through my head as I watch my 14 mo old roam around the apt or outside. He’s still too young for some of the questions you posed, but he already goes NUTS when he hears a plane. And it never gets old – I smile from ear to ear each time! And so far, he is an affectionate little guy – he loves giving big open-mouth kisses!!
Your little guy is absolutely adorable!!
