I had a really hard start with my dd colick, gerd, projectile vomiting everywhere.. didn't sleep for
months! but now things have calmed down ALOT with baby she just loves her mama I'm her everything and it makes me feel great! but I can't help myself to not think about the future, obviously I have no man to give me attention as she grows more independent.. I have no idea how having a toddler or young child will be.. I just love that having me hold her, kiss her and
love her is all she wants at this point. I feel like my thinking is pretty self centered but I'm scared about her not being my little baby girl, before I even know it she'll start growing into her own little women :(

Awww so cute! Cherish these days. They don't want to cuddle forever. My 16 yr old ds is now very protective of me.

Ik how you feel. I use to long for the day she could entertain herself or talk or do something besides sit there... now I severely regret not takin it all in and enjoying her little and cute... 9mos and almost crawling she'll never wanna snuggle:( i hate to see her grow too fast but also makes me thankful she's 100 percent healthy and happy:)

They grow up way too fast. Sometimes I'll sit looking at ds's baby pictures wondering how my baby got so big already.

Aw, I felt the same way.  My son is now 21 months, and it feels like he was just born a few weeks ago.  Time flies. 

You seem like you are cherishing every moment, which is great.

I spent my son's whole first year home with him basically 24/7.  He was (and is) definitely my world, too!

The best thing you can do, though, to accept him growing, is to focus on yourself a bit more, so that you have something of your own to fall back on as your child gets older and closer to school aged.  She will always need you, but less of course.

I went back to school three evenings a week just a few months ago to finish my grad degree, and while I do miss the small amount of time away from him, I find myself more accepting of him growing up.  I feel like we are both growing and moving forward with life.
