Before Chunks, I was the friend that would tell my mom-friends to lay off their kids, not to latch on too tight, give them space, let them push their limits, blah, blah, blah. They all said the same thing "Wait 'til you have your little one!" I would just laugh at them and brush this off and make mental notes of what I would NEVER do when I became a mom.
Well...here I am 10 months later and I'm a TOTAL clown. Motherhood has made me crazy!! lol My pregnancy wasn't easy, emotionally, because of family drama and other stresses but I was determined to remain calm because I couldn't have my baby stressing before he even got a chance to see the world. I ate properly, I read all the books and blogs, I studied my Anatomy and Physiology text books more than when I was in undergrad, and prepared for my little one but NOTHING prepared me for some of the psycho things I've done to Chunks so far.
When he was about 4 mo old I put him in his first polo and jeans and burst into RIDICULOUS tears!! I can't believe I'm even telling you guys this!!! I took this picture and immediately changed him into a one piece romper, sad I know but yea I did it.
When he 1st rolled over I actually wished for the passed 20 minutes before he became a "big boy" ::LORD::
He was born with head full of pretty curly hair and since then the cute curls have turned into a massive bush!! Serious Jesus hair lol. Hubby so badly wants to give him a haircut like two months ago. I've been adamant about not laying a finger on his hair until his 1st Birthday. Well I'm planning his 1st birthday party now and we're getting closer and closer to the haircut day and I'm already bugging. I've seen other kids after their 1st haircut and the before Jonesie would say how cute they were but in actuality they change. They become big little people!! He was just a little cutie bug in my arms unable to roll, sit up, or anything and now he's starting to walk AND have a big boy haircut??? I can't take it!! (cue the drama)
Motherhood has changed me in many ways but seriously I hope this psycho-mom stage passes fast or he's not going to have a date to him prom! I'm trying to enjoy him in this not quite baby not quite big boy stage but honestly I long for those 1 days again, while scary they were the happiest I've ever been. For now I'm in my Tori Spelling/Amy Atlas (yea right) mode getting ready for his 1st Birthday Celebration I can't wait to share all the details with you guys.
