I spotted two teeth in Reuben’s gums tonight! Eeek! It’s such a magical moment. I can see the tops of two teeth right next to the gum along the bottom. They are so clear, I’m sure they’ll pop through any day.
It’s very exciting, but also quite sad! I felt all elated at first, but soon after whilst I was changing his nappy, and he was being all sweet holding his feet grinning at me, I felt a horrid deep ache in the pit of my stomach.
I realised I want to keep him as this super cute baby forever and I don’t want him to grow up. I’ll never experience these baby years again, well until we hopefully have Grandchildren, and time just needs to slow down. I suddenly felt a little sad and wished those teeth would stay away a little longer! Soon there will be no more adorable gummy grins and that saddens me a little.
Please stay my cute little baby boy forever Reuben!
A little blurry, but I love this photo!
