You know how when babies are first born, you notice every milestone? "Look, she's following with her eyes!" I guess it's because they don't do much for the first 4 or 5 months. It's easy to notice when they smile or roll over when that's about all that's going on.
It's almost scary now how much she changes every day. It's happening so fast that I don't have time to write it down. It seems like every day there is a new word, a new action, a new something to marvel at. When did she start climbing up on the couch on her own, when did she start saying chicken, when did she start saying "nana" when I asked her what she wanted for breakfast, how does she know exactly what to go get when I ask her to get something? It's all these little things that you don't notice until one day you are watching her and you think, "Where did my baby go?"
I guess that I should be thrilled. The more independent she is, the easier it will be when the baby gets here. And being her Mom is so much fun now, but I still think that it is just all going by a little too fast.
