This week’s sentence is ”If I could go back and do something over it would be…“

The moments when he rolled over, sat up, and crawled. The moments when he copied my facial expressions and sounds. The moments when he first said mommy and daddy and I love you. The moments when he started eating on his own and no longer wanted the bottle. The moments when he would sit in my arms, holding onto me and I would rock him endlessly.
Even though Dinosaur is only four, so many beautiful moments have become memories. I know all too well that soon he will be elementary school then middle school running off with his friends these moments will be memories too. It’s so bittersweet to watch your child grow and remember the baby he once was and the man he will become.
