Today is my son 5 months old. I cannot belive that it has been 5 months already. He has grown so much and turned into such a lovely little baby boy. Why didnt anyone tell me that time goes by so fast when you have kids? 5 months have never gone so fast before.

Enjoy your son while at his age. I have 10, 9 and 6-year old. For me, Children are the most adorable from their 3 months to 6 years old. Once they are a little grown ups, they do not listen to you most of time because they already have their own decisions

Thank you for responding! Yes when they are older they do know what they want, so I have to cherish this time when he still is dependent on me lol.

I have 2 girls aged 8 and 6 1/2. I oftentimes wish that they are still in their crib. As our litlle ones needed our time and attention, we didnt have the time to count on the days and nights that past through us. We, mothers, tend to get sentimental where our children are concern. Its like everyday, I felt that I'm doing the same things but my children are not the same anymore. They just keep growing and growing. My eldest is almost at the tip of my shoulder now. Maybe, in 2 years, I need to raise my head when I'm talking with my children. keep up the good job.

Thank you for responding! It is strange to think that he might actually outgrow me someday.

OMG!! I know exactly how you feel. It seems like only yesterday when my first child was born; she just turned 4 at the beginning of this month. Everyday that I get to spend with her and her younger sister, who is 2, I am just amazed to see how much they've grown and learned since they were born. They went from being helpless and totally dependent, to individuals with their own personalities and their own likes and dislikes. Cherish this time that you have with your son, its time that you'll never get back later.

Thank you for responding. It is quite amazing to see those little babies go from beeing totally helpless to be self dependent individuals.

Congratulations! I dont think anyone should tell you. With children you often find yourself living in moments you dont want to let go. I have four children and i still remember those moments as if they were yesterday. In the end you have to hang on to those, because suddenly there is a teenager in your house: Where did he come from? Please enjoy every moment. He is going to give you so much joy.

Yes, time flies. Better share and cherish moments with your son whenever you can. Keep a track of his developments by taking pictures on a monthly basis until his birthday. I have a monthly compilation of my daughter's pictures since the day she was born aside from a few video clips. She's now turning 3 years old and she likes looking at these albums over and over again.

Thank you for responding! I have been scrapbooking for 3 years now. So I started his album alredy when he was in my tummy ;) I am so glad I do scrapbooking and I hope he will love to watch his albums when he gets older.

Mirel do take the time to enjoy your son as much as you can. It flies by. My sons will be 11 and 12 in April and it's gone by in a heartbeat. The older they get the faster it seems to go, or maybe it's just that we get busier with our lives and they start becoming their own little people with friends and activites and what they want to do, not being with mom all the time.

Paretns will always tell you that time goes by so fast, but for some reason new parents will never believe it. When your kid goes off to college you'll wonder where the time has gone, but some days it'll feel like it's lasting forever.

Thank you for responding. I remember when he was born everyone said that I should cherish the moment when he was newborn, because before I knew it he would be a teenager. But I didnt belive them. Now I do ;)

I do not have any kids of my own but have been around friends with children and have seen them grown in a short period of time. I have also witnessed my brothers children and am amazed how in such short period time that they get bigger and are able to start doing more things.
