It's funny how time slips away from you when you have a child. Every minute just gets lost. Even if they're tucked away for a three hour nap it seems to just fly by. I never get as much done as I plan and it's really frustrating sometimes! Before I know it he's awake! Or I think "I've got three hours to do this and this and this" but that's the day he decides to only sleep 1 1/2-2 hours! Argh!

Maybe I just need to become more organized. I need to plan ahead. Especially with meals. I have been terrible in that department. I used to love to have dinner ready for when Dan got home from work but I feel like I've just lost that, you know? If I plan ahead for the week maybe I can actually accomplish it, though. Paul is content enough to sit in his chair in the kitchen while I make meals. It will be really nice when I can use the high won't be long!

Speaking of, I can't believe how fast Paul is growing! He's chubbing up (although he's not a super chubby baby) and he's getting longer. It just amazes me when I look at him sometimes. It's sad sometimes thinking that he will never be this way again - this is it. Time is just stealing my baby away from me! I know he's not even four months old but that's four months of his life (and ours!)

Maybe I'm just feeling a little sentimental today...I don't know. I'm enjoying him at this age. He jabbers away and smiles a lot. He's now sleeping 9 hours at night (without a feeding in that time) so I am LOVING that! I just don't want to miss anything. I definitely know I want another one, that's for sure! Not yet, but we have plans to start trying again in about a year to a year and a half. We'll know when it's time again. Until then, I will enjoy this little bugger!
