The older my kids get, the more I realize that I’m really not a huge fan of the newborn stage. I love my newborn babies with all my heart, don’t get me wrong, but they just don’t DO anything at that stage! When Nathan was about 6 months old, I remember calling my mom and telling her, “AHA! Apparently THIS is when things start to get fun! 6 months old is where it’s at!” When Nathan was 9 months old, I remember telling a friend, “Okay, 6 months was kind of interesting, but this whole 9 month old thing is WAY better!” And at 12 months, I decided I’d been crazy before, that 6 and 9 months were certainly better than the newborn stage, but that apparently the older Nathan got, the more fun and exciting he was.
