There’s Something About Aaron

September 16, 2011

Dear Aaron,

I didn’t really want to believe people when they told me that time was going to fly once you were born.  Boy, were they right.  I seriously feel like you were just born.  So much about you has changed in this last year, and it’s really the little things that I find I miss, or am going to miss. 

One thing I miss the most is from the early few weeks and months when you didn’t nap or sleep regularly, but fell asleep on a fairly regular basis.  You would get a little fussy  in the afternoon, and I would put you in the Moby Wrap and snuggle you all afternoon.  I loved that time.

I just noticed something yesterday that made me really sad.  It wasn’t something I ever thought I would miss, since I didn’t think it was really significant.  But now that it’s gone, I can’t help but feel a little wistful.

For months, no matter what I did, your hair has stood up all over the place.  I certainly wasn’t going to put gel in it or anything to calm it down, so instead, it just kind of did it’s own thing.

Your hair isn’t suddenly all smooth out of nowhere, but as it’s getting thicker and fuller (where did that come from by the way?  I was totally bald until I was 2!), it’s not quite as mad scientist crazy anymore.

Your hair honestly has a mind of it’s own (well, at least that you got from me).  

The other day you styled your hair in such a way that had me kicking myself for not having the camera closer.  You took some hummus and used it as hair gel.  It was kind of like this:

Only not nearly as gross. 

Now as you grow older and older (slow down), your hair is less baby and more boy.  Only suddenly it’s a little more “business in the front, party in the back” if ya know what I mean.

I know everything is going to change (and fast!) and it’s supposed to.  I just didn’t expect to miss such little things.  Slow it down baby, there really is something about Aaron and I don’t want to miss any of it!
