too fast

On February 14th of this year, I excitedly dug out my camera and taped Noah crawling, 'cause it was the third of fourth day he had showed this exciting new development

Then, friends, something mind-blowing and exciting, yet terrifying and all-so-sudden happened this morning. I sometimes leave Noah in his room with the door open while I'm in the bathroom gettin' gussied up. As seen in the video above and a picture on a previous post, he loves his walker, and it makes a lot of noises, so I know that as long as it is making noises Noah is playing with it, and is therefore not getting into trouble. Well, this morning, As I was applying makeup, the walker went quiet. Mildly concerned, I stepped out of the bathroom and poked my head into his room, and this is what I saw:

Alright, I didn't see this exactly. I taped this tonight, right before Noah went to bed. But that was what he was doing this morning. He had pulled the walker away from where I had it up against his crib, pulled himself to his feet behind it, and had strode shakily to the middle of his nursery. Friends, I dropped the makeup in my hands, swept my baby into my arms, and I cried.
      All mothers can testify to the fact that babies grow up so very, very fast. a little over two weeks ago, Noah was hop/crawling. Now, he wants to walk. At almost 10 months! God has blessed my husband and I so much, so would it be wrong of me to ask him to slow those sweet, special moments down a little bit?
