It was such a milestone that I actually scrapbooked it (another thing I could do once he could sit up! LOL). I took a photo of Ian sitting playing with some toys at 5.5 months, titled the page, "Golden Days" and wrote a bit about what we had been through and then how wonderful it was to have time again to wash dishes and just get stuff done. LOL
At the time, I thought I would NEVER get through it, but the time passes quickly. I'm in shock that Colton was born a MONTH ago -- seems like yesterday -- and that Ian is so darn big and independent now. Where did the babies go????
I think my point there is to just roll with your baby's needs and do your best to meet yours at the same time. Those days, even the worst ones with your newborns, will never come back. Before we know it, those kids are grown.
