I've been dreading writing this post, though it has been in the works in my head for weeks, maybe months. Why dread it? I want to say it just right. Rather than stating my New Year's Resolutions like I did last year, this years resolution is more theme based. Here goes.
Before we had Griffin, people had told us that "everything would change," "nothing will ever be the same," and in some ways I can see where they are coming from, life with a child has to change. But Griffin so readily acclimated to life in our family and he has always been so easy to read that I just kept waiting for that moment when "everything changed."
It is amazing how early these types of preferences and interests manifest themselves in a child, and I'm sure every child is different. I love hearing about the different perspectives mom's have and the things they look for, hear, see, and do, just to make their kids' days more enjoyable.
What amazes me even more is that Griffin's baby sister will be a completely different human being, with different interests and somehow I will learn to cater to her quirkiness as well. I am so excited for what new perspectives she will teach me (even if it is princesses) and how she will change our lives. I cannot wait for March 1st (ish), but in the meantime, I am keeping busy with the planes, trains, automobiles and great outdoors that Griffin seems to love so much.
