I would say so, but I don't know how sad you are talking about. I mean, my son will be 7 months on July 1st, and sometimes I think about how fast he is growing and how I miss my little teeny newborn baby, but then I get excited thinking about all the new experiences that are still to come. So I would say just try to focus on the positives and think about all the things you will be able to do with her in the coming years.

It depends on what you mean by "sad" and what feelings you are having. If you are "sad" and it's affecting your day-to-day functioning, can't get out of bed, cry for no reason, can't care for your child, don't feel like leaving the house or being around other people, then no, that is not exactly normal. If this is how you are feeling I would strongly encourage you to talk with your MD about your feelings or seek some other type of support. If you are just sad because she is growing up, then yes, that's normal. It's amazing how fast they grow but it seems like there is always something new to look forward to no matter what the age.
