|So serious and deep in thought|
There isn't a way to prepare for it. No matter how many times you hear "cherish every moment because they grow up so fast" it won't make sense until you experience it. The advice was given to us by, well, like everyone under the sun, and it still didn't register until we are in the moment. It just blows my mind at how quickly he's growing up.
I have to admit that he has been the perfect baby. He's spoiling us daddies through and through. Doesn't fuss much, sleeps through the night, travels well...it's been amazing! However, I'm still exhausted. Raising a wee one is a lot of work. Like, hard work! Also something everyone tells you but you don't fully comprehend until it's here and now. But I wouldn't trade it for the world. Max is precious and so is every moment I get to spend with him.
Alright, off to go try and accomplish something else on the list while I'm still able to keep my eyes open.
