There were a lot of changes in the days around Justin’s birthday: he gave up the bottle, switched from formula to milk, started walking and had his first haircut. After a few months of what seemed like little change, we suddenly realized our baby was growing up. I thought I would miss the baby days, but every new stage brings new and wonderful things, and I find myself enjoying watching Justin turn into a “real little boy,” as everyone puts it. It’s about this age that a lot of women start pining for a second baby (how many millions of siblings out there are only about two years apart?) but we’re definitely not there yet. I like our family just the way it is.
