And I'm very emotional about it. I can't believe he's 1. An actual number. Sob.

Someone tell me to get a grip or a glass of wine

notascooby007 Wed 12-Aug-15 19:48:58

Have a glass of wine wine my lo is coming up to 6mth and I want him to stay the way he is. From 12m to around 3.5 is a nightmare imo shock

Aww bless you, I know it's a cliche but it really does go too fast doesn't it?

My baby just turned 2 and I'm still coming to terms with the fact that I don't have a baby anymore, I have a toddler confused

On the other hand I'm now celebrating the fact that when people ask how old she is I can just say 2 instead of trying to remember how many months old she is (because I could never just say 1, apparently!)

It's gone SO FAST. People said that to me when I was pregnant, and I just ignored them but my god, they were so right!
Yep, not looking forward to the temper tantrums confusedconfused

I absolutely loved having a newborn and cried when he was 2 weeks old because he was getting too big! Now he's 19 months and I'm starting to realise that most people enjoy watching their kids grow up, and mourning the end of each stage is a bit sad really. 1-2, so far, has been utterly amazing. He is incredible fun, and such a joy. Learning to walk, talk, make jokes, socialise... its just magic. I dreaded him turning 1, but am trying not to be like that any more, because watching them grow is just amazing.

I love at my four year old now and feel tears. It's not going to be long until he's to big to scoop up and cuddle. His kegs are getting sooo long and hes only a small four! I want this age of innocence to kadt forever sad

Jo4040 Wed 12-Aug-15 20:41:16

I look*

Chottie Wed 12-Aug-15 20:45:49

my baby is now in his 30s <sob> I feel your pain....... sad

Ilovenannyplum Wed 12-Aug-15 20:47:47

Chottie your baby is older than me. Sorry I realise that's not actually helping wink

winethanks To all, may your babies always want their mums no matter how old they get.
sobs into DS's tiny baby babygros

HuftysTrain Wed 12-Aug-15 20:49:22

1 is tiny still. Definitely a baby for a while longer. All the fun stuff is still to come.

I felt emotional too - it's normal. But they have to grow up, you wouldn't want it any other way. You don't it yet but your baby is about to get even cuter.

Chottie Wed 12-Aug-15 20:52:32

Ilove I think I was just trying to say that once you are a mum, you are always a mum no matter what age your DCs are. smile

LostMyBaubles Wed 12-Aug-15 21:07:14

my eldest is 5 next month. Middle one just turned 2 and my baby is 1 next week
I need another baby! grin

Crownjewel Wed 12-Aug-15 21:29:02

Oh my God - this thread has made me cry actual real tears at the thought of DS turning one in a couple of weeks blush but happy birthday to BabyPlum for tomorrow, and winefor you OP x

Ilovenannyplum Wed 12-Aug-15 22:45:17

Thanks crown smile don't cry! Well at least not yet! xx
I've just filled my living room with balloons and far too many presents looking forward to seeing his little face when he sees it

MrsNuckyThompson Wed 12-Aug-15 22:47:11

A lot happens this year to make it b exciting! Walking, talking, becoming much more of a real little person! DS is 2.5 and imho this is the best age so far, way easier and more fun than 1 - so lots to look forward to!!!

Next Wednesday is my DS's birthday... I'm already spending my evenings looking at his tiny baby photos and crying a bit. And videos of the grunty little newborn with arms waving around and mouth opening and closing like a fish... Where is he?! And certain songs we listened to all through the first two weeks as a family... He's so so beautiful now but I did enjoy the baby phase a lot and do mourn it.

HoggleHoggle Thu 13-Aug-15 06:58:13

My ds is 20 months and I've loved the 1 yr + stage! Walking, talking, so much more communication and understanding between us. Although I did feel like you on his birthday.

Hope you have a brill day together!

Ilovenannyplum Thu 13-Aug-15 07:52:05

So glad I'm not alone, was worried I was being over emotional!
Well he's still asleep so clearly I'm far more excited about his birthday than he is! grin

My baby turned one a month ago. My principle reaction was "YES I no longer have to buy formula!" unsentimental cow

TheOriginalWinkly Thu 13-Aug-15 08:17:52

Happy birthday littlePlum.

DD was 1 last month. I was also emotional, though not so much on the actual day, I was busy having cake trauma.

ApplesTheHare Thu 13-Aug-15 08:24:15

Happy Birthday BabyPlum! smile

DD is 1 in 3 weeks and I feel exactly the same. She started walking a couple of weeks ago and I cried for about a week. I never thought I'd feel so sentimental blush

Twizzletoes Thu 13-Aug-15 20:57:13

My baby turns one in four weeks. I'm already feeling sad! I've been watching the videos I took when he was teeny tiny. Now I've got a stroppy little Mr who hates his nappy being changed!

1 is when it starts to be fun! wine

Ilovenannyplum Fri 14-Aug-15 07:34:22

Thanks all smile
Held it together til bedtime, when he decided he would like to fall asleep in my arms before cot transfer (he never does this anymore!) so I had a bit of a cry whilst we had a little cuddle. Him sleeping and completely oblivious.
Then pulled myself together and started writing my food shopping list for his party on Sunday. It's long confused
