Porter is very mobile now, able to take a couple steps at a time unassisted, and an advanced crawler. I’d bet on him in a baby crawling race any day. I give him a lot of freedom to roam around the living room, hallway and his bedroom. If I’m not in the same room I check on him every couple minutes. While he was in his bedroom I was doing something in another room when I heard giggles and thumps, which of course begged of my attention. I went to see what was up and this is what I found:
Being with my child everyday has allowed me to watched him develop and grow very intimately. He literally changes everyday, but my favorite part to see emerge is his personality. It’s changed a lot in the last year, but just a month or so ago I noticed a major change which I can’t quite identify. He went from being a baby to a toddler, mentally. There is something lost, which I’m quite sure will never be regained and that’s a little sad to consider. Surly this won’t be the last time I see him mature, but it’s a little strange to actually witness a person change so dramatically before my very eyes. The nice part is seeing how he has grown into an outgoing, inquisitive and very friendly person. The one thing I know for sure is that I love him more all the time.
