Don't rush

I don't understand why so many parents try to rush their babies growth and milestones. I know it's exciting to see the babies developing and growing but doesn't it kinda take the excitement away if your always comparing your babies to other babies? I say just let the babies do stuff when they are ready. JMO !

  • I agree. My son is only 8 months old and I already have realized how quickly he's growing. I try to savor every moment. I'm excited for him to grow and do different things, but at the same time I know I'll miss him being a baby one day when he's all grown up. I'm in no rush...I LOVE every stage he goes through and want to focus as much of my attention on it and make as many memories as possible. :)

  • Well, because babies are annoying. Kids can do so much more. They listen. They talk. They have personalities. They're potty trained. They're independent. I really don't understand the appeal of babies. ((shiver))
