People said the first six months would be the most difficult. That they would crawl by and the adjustments would be hard. And those everyone unanimously mentioned right after, how 6 months plus would be a “really fun age”. Sometimes I cannot believe we have had Naddu for only six months- it feels like we have known him a lifetime. And at other times it’s like have we had him for SIX WHOLE months? Feels like it was only yesterday that he was born. My mom insists the feeling remains the same even after 30 years. She would know.
Six months old today and I was telling k (quite emotionally) that Naddu has become so big and soon he will be off to college. K, in his usual stoic way of putting up with my melodramatic (hilarious?) exclamations said (hiding a smile), “Yes, love but it will help him if he can learn to sit up first, don’t you think?”
