What a new mom thing to say. He'll be driving before you know it. (Assuming people still drive by then.)
I'm not sure weekends will be any less exhausting for us once he's off driving around and causing trouble. ;-)
I wonder if the "they grow up so fast" perception is different for baby-people vs. not-really-into-babies-people. I'm definitely the latter, and even as a kid I often preferred the company of adults. Lukas is an exception because he's awesome, so I like hanging out with him, but time is not flying. Sure, he's changed a lot and is learning really fast in calendar time but it feels more like a decade than < two years.
Or I wonder if it's more 'people people' vs. 'recharge alone' people.
What I've felt is that *days* and *weeks* pass slowly, *years* pass quickly.
In other words, it drags while you're in it, but in retrospect it all goes by so fast.
So, try to enjoy these days. They WILL pass, and you'll miss them. A little.
Even without a kid, I feel like my perception of time passing is related to how many different things I am doing and how challenging they are. I imagine having a kid would skew that as well too, as you'd notice small increments of time more.
