My youngest has been asking lately to see pictures of him as a baby. He was my “Budda Baby” coming in at 10lbs. 7oz. and the chubbiest cheeks you have every seen. While I was showing him pictures of him, I started looking through old pictures too and came across this one. This picture is my absolute favorite of my kids (so far).
The baby in this photo is now 3 1/2 and will be starting preschool this Fall. My oldest made a comment to me the other day that in eight years he will be driving. I swallowed a big lump in my throat, realizing that time is definitely flying before my eyes. As hard as it is to watch your children grow up, it is satisfying to see the person they are becoming. Whether its holding a door open for their mom or learning to write “mom” or saying they love you without you saying it first. My actions and words are sinking in and those little moments prove it.
So, when my little guy wants to go down memory road with me, I will be happy to do so.
