I can't wait until Penny is older.
I know, I know. You'll tell me to enjoy the baby phase, they grow so fast, time flies, you'll look back one day and miss this, yada yada yada.
You're right. Time does fly and one day I'll look back on this phase with nostalgia and a tinge of sadness.
Today is not that day.
I love, love, love my baby girl. But I am SO DONE with this phase. Ready to move on to walking and talking. Ready to have her tell me exactly what she wants (not that she'd necessarily always get it), ready for her to be able to play on her own for a little while, ready for swinging at the park, actually reading books together, and "no mommy" & "I love you".
When those things happen, I'll come back to this post and probably say to myself "gosh, I miss the baby phase, when she would just sit in one place and not talk back".
Hindsight is 20/20 after all.
But with all of that said, I'm ready.
