sophie is shrinking
the best thing about going to a new mothers' group is that you get to see just how much your baby has grown. the first 2-4 weeks are so hazy in my mind. i tried my best to keep a hold of the first moments with leon, with his squishy softness and strange dinosaur noises, but now i have a hard time believing that the 4 week olds aren't actually 2 weeks. they all look so tiny and helpless to me in comparison with my robust nearly 6 month old. it's nice to keep some perspective on leon's growth and to also remind myself that every stage of his life so far has been fascinating, challenging, and equally wonderful.
