yesterday, hero turned 5 months old. i can't wrap my brain around the fact that, in 4 weeks, she'll be 6 months old.
i told chas this morning that she's growing up too fast and how strange it is that you only get such a short amount of time with them as babies. then their baby-ness is gone forever. this morning was the first time that i felt a little sad about it all.
it's almost enough to make me want to start trying for another.
but then i miraculously fit into a pair of pre-pregnancy jeans first the first time yesterday and about died of happiness. nothing short of skipping merrily around the house for a good 10 minutes. (i'm getting joyous little butterflies in my tummy right now just thinking about it.)
so no. i don't think a pregnancy is on the horizon for us. i need some more time with my "normal" body and more time with hero, and only hero. i have the rest of my life to be stressed out with multiple children. i'm gonna hold onto this little perfect time, when it's just the three of us, for a while longer.
