The most common thing you hear a parent say is “They grow up so fast, so cherish the time you have with them.” And seeing Otto grow is really strong evidence for this saying that I didn’t get before having a baby. Not truly.

Today we removed his newborn insert of the baby car seat as he’s been laying in it somewhat awkwardly. Now he seems snugger for his size in it and safer, which is the most important part.

All things considered us and our beautiful life.
