Tuesday 31 January 2012: Growth
Linden is 3 months old now, and that seems like such a short amount of time for all the growth and development he's shown. Last week when I was looking at him playing on his playmat, the phrase, "You are constantly being formed," came to my mind. I remember reading about the development of the fetus every week when I was pregnant, and now watching Linden grow and gain skills, I enjoy getting to actually see his development. I realize I was once Linden's size and my parents watched me develop. It occurs to me that I am still a child and that I am constantly being formed as well. Although outward appearances and developments don't change as quickly for me, becoming a parent is teaching me that I'm growing and learning; I learn from mistakes, I adapt to new situations, etc. Our parents see this in us, their parents see it in them, and so on. We're all constantly being formed.
