Zodwa, dont feel down Hun. I also felt the same way when my LG turned 1.
But you know what i have come to realise people look at her and say ... its time for another one but i am waiting.

I am enjoying every minute of her and i am giving her, her chance to be the limelight in our lives. I waited 8 years (by choice) to have a baby and let me tell you my LG is still my baby. She has no teeth at 17 months... i still see her gummy smile. She still likes to cuddle by me. She loves giving hugs and kisses and its those things that you must count your blessings on as baby grows up. You have so much to look forward to my darling. And as much as i want her to stay a baby is as much as i want her to grow so that we could have a conversation :)

Emsmom Ur daughter is so sweet. Such wisdom from a small person. Now she makes me want to look foward to what Ruru will tell me one day to make me feel better

Im def feeling better bout it today, told DH to go ahead & invite ppl from tomorrow. Its still bitter sweet though.......
As I was getting him to sleep today I was remembering the day he was born & the 1st time he opened his eyes, how tiny he was.... he's gotten sooo big.

Makes me wonder how my mom looks at me now, with my own family & "her baby" having a baby....

I dont recall having that feeling with her 1st birthday, mine kicked in when she started "big school" I cried buckets. When she asked me why I was crying I told her its cause she's growing up to fast. She just rubbed my arm and said "dont worry cause I'll always be your baby"

And although I would love to keep her little and sweet (dreading the teens) I also love each new stage she goes through. And even when she is 40, she will still be my baby.

ha ha ha Zodwa :) each time my baby adds a month to his precious life, I recall the time he was tiny. Tomorrow he is turning 16 months and I said to his daddy "you know what, by this time last year, your son was almost 4 months and was my son too coz he was listening to me" Now he is this big-little man who has his own personality and independancy.
Don't worry mommy, he will always be your baby no matter how tall and big he is :) Just be proud for the job well done :) :) :)

Ruru really did do everything too early & the baby disappeard too quickly, u right bout that.

Elamsmom I feel u on the "going big" Im lucky in that my family is far away from me right now so there wont b a big party. If I was in EC, eish, I wld need caterers, a priest, tent & the lot!!!!

Hi Zodwa.

I am not looking fwd to my LG's 1st bday for some different reasons. See, with us darkies, the whole 1st bday thing is really quite a HUGE deal and the whole family from far and wide descends upon your house and stays for a whole week! Well, at least my family is going to. See, my family is from the EC and another family member is getting married in Jhb the weekend after my daughters bday...

I just feel like 2011 was very hectic for me with the wedding and having a baby started a new job, maternity leave, when got back to new job things weren't that good anymore so started another new job this yr plus DH and I went thru some REALLY hectic stuff.

I know it makes no sense cos it's only one weekend but I really want 2011 to be just a quiet year for us, don't feel like entertaining or having so many ppl over...I am selfish and unreasonable I know but it's just how I feel...

Abt Nunu's growing up...I feel u on that one too. I miss my LG being a tiny little thing that lies happily in my arms and stares into my eyes whilst breastfeeding. Greatest bonding for me took place at those moments. Now she hates being cradled like a baby and wriggles out of my arms irritatedly and crawls off to do her own thing (usually making a huge mess :)) ...
