If I said that it didn't bother me once in awhile that Colin isn't walking yet.
If I said that it didn't bother me that Colin still isn't picking food up and putting it in his mouth using his fingers yet.
If I said that it didn't bother me that Colin still isn't off the bottle completely yet.
If I said that Colin still doesn't say "mama" yet.
But, the important word I put in there is yet. You see, the thing is, I know he is going to do all of these things. These things do bother me, but not for the reasons that you would expect anymore.
I want Colin walking so that he can walk right into my arms by himself...and I want him feeding himself so that he can do it....and I want him to be able to hold his cup and drink through the straw whenever he wants...and I want to hear that beautiful word come out of his mouth so that he sees how much it means to me.
But he will do all of those things...I know.
...so I'd be lying if I said those things didn't bother me...but it's only because I want the best for my little boy. But then again, who doesn't want the best for their kids?
