In the Blink of an Eye


This kid, you guys. He is just too much. He is changing every single day but I don’t always notice it. Today was one of those days, though, when I noticed it big time. In this post, I talked about the music class we go to with Otto. Since we started going, he’s mostly been his observant self. Taking everything in. Sure, he took his turns at the instruments when it was time, but not by himself. We took him where he needed to go, we were with him every second. But today was different. He was a little boy, not a baby anymore. He danced, played, walked to the teachers himself, giggled, and sang. I just can’t believe how much he has changed in only the last month. At the first class of the fall, he cried when we tried to set him down to walk by himself. Today, he wanted nothing more than to do it all on his own. I know he’ll still have times where he’d rather be in our arms than dancing and singing, and I’ll cherish that, too. But today was something else. I don’t wanna forget it.


  1. I enjoy reading your posts. Grandpa Peterson told me once to enjoy every moment raising the kids because it goes so fast and I believe I did. He said, “I feel like I slept to long and woke up and they were grown.”
