As I sit here thinking about my youngest and last baby’s first year, the alarming fact that comes to my mind is that this year has already gone so fast. How can my baby be 8 months old today?! I feel like my pregnancy always moves like molasses, but the first year moves as quick as lightning.
This year has been a fun one. Little Man has been such a joy to have in our life. He is constantly doted upon by his big sisters, hugged and loved and squeezed and pushed around in baby doll strollers. It brings so much joy to my heart to watch my kids caring for and bonding with each other. When they get lost in an imaginary game, it takes me back to my own childhood, and again I’m brought back to the thought that this time will pass too quickly.
Right now, I am their whole world. I am everything that matters to them. Their family is who they are. As they start to grow and experience new things outside of our home, that bubble will pop. I won’t be all they need. Friends will come into their lives, extra curricular activities will run our schedule, and it will get harder and harder to find the time to just sit and have dinner together. So for now, I just cherish every moment I have with the silly giggles, sticky faces, and chocolate fingerprints on the carpet. It warms my Momma heart to see them being kids and making messes, even though sometimes those messes make me feel like I might lose my mind in the moment 🙂
This year we’ve had WaterWipes to help manage those messes! I love being able to use WaterWipes to clean up those sticky faces without worrying about harsh chemicals on their skin. WaterWipes only have two ingredients: 99.9% Irish water, and .1% grapefruit seed extract. They’re super durable but my favorite part is that they are soaking wet! I can use one WaterWipe for a super messy job that would have taken 3 or 4 wipes from another brand. I use WaterWipes for everything! Cleaning little bums, wiping away paint after a crafty day, and cleaning the blue goo from my two year old’s car seat cupholder (Ew. I think it was a melted lollipop…) WaterWipes are a super safe alternative to other brands. They really are my most favorite wipes ever!
The first year with your little one is a whirlwind that goes by in a blink of an eye, but brings the best, most rewarding memories. This video is made up of other moms who have been there too! Live in those moments. Breathe them in. Cherish every mess. Clean it up with a smile because soon you’ll finally have a clean house, and you’ll want the mess back.
