Oh How he Has Grown14
June 1, 2012 by CassieCravings
It hit me quite suddenly how much he has grown.
We sat on the couch pouring over one of his favorite books. He can now name most of the animals, including the fwamicko (flamingo) and the hiptomopotus (hippopotamus).
That morning he said, “Mama, I reads to you.” Oh how he has grown!
As I marveled and grieved in the same moment, tiny kicking toes caught my eyes. They barely stuck beyond the edge of the book.
Oh how he has grown, but he is still my baby boy. At least for now.
And for now I crave as many moments of “Mama, I reads to you” as I can possibly get.
Just lovely…I wonder why they all want to hop and do “wibbit, wibbit” when they hear or see frogs. Mighty English professors toddlers are. Bless his growing heart always
I’m not even sure where they all learn it. But they certainly do.
Thank you so much. He is such a blessing to me.
Don’t you just LOVE little toddler feet?! And wow…he really looks like he’s grown so much in that picture! What a sweet boy!! 🙂
I love, love, love them. I know in a few years they will be stinky and stay dirty, so I am taking as many pics as I can now. 🙂
love this. You reminded me to sit down and read with my little man today.
And part of me doesn’t want to teach him to say the words the right way. Honey-SNuckle is just too cute!
When Eli quit saying “tocks lock” for “socks off”, I was a little sad.
I can’t believe how quickly they pick up on new words. 🙂
LOVE this mama!!! What a sweet boy!
Thank you so much! 🙂 I am very blessed to have such a sweet little guy!
They do grow up too fast, don’t they?!? 🙂
SO fast! People keep telling me they do. I just can’t get over how fast time can actually go.
And it only gets faster. 😦
I try to hold onto every moment that I can. 🙂
Oh yeah, I have the camera out at every opportunity and just love the moments where he wants me to hold him. I try to never turn him down for snuggles. I know that it won’t be long, and he won’t have time for it.
My 6 years old son, takes great pleasure in telling me that he’s a big boy and then I pretend to cry because he is growing up so fast! I figure that while he still plays this game and insists that he is a big boy… That he is still really my little boy! You might like our story…http://mytwicebakedpotato.com
Aww! Too sweet! Thank you!
