Today marks the first day of Sunny's new life. Last night and over this past weekend, Matt put away most of her "baby" things and replaced them with big girl things.
We no longer have a "Bimbo" seat, we have a high chair. We no longer have a infant tub, we have a "ducky tub," that she lounges in, splashes in, and smiles in.
And perhaps the biggest news is this, last night Sunny kept curling her tongue and sliding it across her gums. When I checked her bottom gum I felt it first, and saw them second her two bottom teeth have broken the skin and are coming in. This was the last straw, I started to cry, Matt celebrated, and Sunny looked at me as if to say "I did it!"
I've never been great with goodbyes, and this one seems bitter sweet. I have to let go of my infant baby and embrace my almost 7 month old sitting, teething, girl. People have been right, it does just keep getting better. Then I held her close to me and rocked her day and night, now she hugs, pats, kisses and rocks back and forth on her own. I adore my Sunshine girl, she is my heart and I am so grateful to be on this journey with her and Matt, but God how I wish I could slow it down, or freeze frame time, or just shove her into her baby clothes for a little bit longer.
This is simply beautiful. What a wonderful time to witness the change and growth in your little Sunshine.
