Nine months for my inside baby to grow from the size of a sesame seed to the size of a watermelon, and now, nine months of my outside baby growing from fitting on papa's forearm to being almost half as long as I am. I am still amazed at how quickly they grow, how quickly they change, and how quickly the months fly by.
Blink, and you miss things.
I now understand why parents always think their kids are smart. When they first come into the world, babies are completely useless. They can't even hold their heads up. So, in contrast, when they learn to roll over or babble, you think your little one is a genius. It's even a developmental milestone when they look for something they dropped. Way to go!
