As you moms know going from the zippy cup ( even those with the pop straw) doesn't seem like s big deal to non parents but to us it means someting greater... It me and they are growing up. :(
Today while I was at Target picking up s few things, I walked down the sippy cup wall in baby/ kids section and realized few things:
one, I like seeing the design they have on the cups and if there's any we don't have.
Two, it wasvtime to get "big boy" cup with out straws and lids ( I can see the carpet now...) because for the past few days everyone I pour myself a glass of water or my diet iced tea LJ is right there wanting a sip. Of course you know that he has to do it all by himself, but he will share with mommy, if I don't take too long to drink it. He has great gross motor skills for this so that is exciting to see. He has been doing a great job not spilling and staying in the same spot to drink. So I thought it was about time to start giving him his only " big boy" cup.
The third and final thing I realized is that as I am trading up to big boy cups, many of my friend including my best friend are trading in their wine glasses for baby bottles...yes, it is pregnancy fever around me. I have so many friends that are pregnant or TTC I need both hands to count. I am sooo excited for them, most being first time mommies, and I love to hear about everything, it makes me realize how 2 years has flown by...thats right my little guy will be 2 in February. it also made me realize how great those moments of picking out all the new baby stuff was, and how every week your baby is growing and doing something different, the sonograms and seeing your baby on the screen is so exciting...I'm sure I could go on but I think you exactly what I mean.
I just feel so lucky to have my little man and learn what I have but always how blessed I am to bebable to go through the journey again with my friends and be their to support them, answer questions, and be partvof those joyous moments even in a small way. I know everyone will be amazing moms and dads!
So I wanted to say wheather you are trading up or trading in... It's all amazing. Can't wait to meet you babies of 2011!!
