And Today.....

The baby, my baby, is 18 months old. This age to me has always been a milestone. An age that starts "the change". That baby to big boy change. And it came much too fast.

It's true that with each child you have they grow so much faster. I think we just get busier and time goes by that much faster. But since Carter was born I have always wanted time to just stop for a bit. I've wanted to just stay home with no other responsibilities except to be this child's mommy. Like it was when his brothers were babies.

I feel like I was truly able to soak up every bit of Monte and Hunter's babyhood. I can't really say that with Carter. I almost feel like I've missed something. Which is crazy since up until a month ago when I started working I had only even left him a handful of times. I guess it's just me going about life, when what I really want is to just stop. Stop and breathe in his sweet babyness.

But oh, how I love this age. He really is turning into such a little boy. The baby in him slipping away. He knows that cars go "vroom vroom" without ever being told, and that anything can be a gun. "Bow, bow" he says. (probably thanks to his brothers) I could watch his little legs run all day long, and sometime I make him do it just because it brings a smile to my face and a giggle to my lips every single time. And how he grunts everytime I pick him up. It's so funny.

Carter is the baby. Will probably always be the baby. And I am just going to enjoy every minute of it as best I can. No matter how fast life takes us.

To Blog Or Not To Blog?

That really has been the question lately. In case you haven't noticed, hee hee, I haven't really been in the mood to blog. Too busy is really more like it. So I'm still thinking whether this is something I even want to do anymore.

But I had to at least let everyone know that today is Hunter's 7th birthday. We had cinnamon rolls and hershey kisses for breakfast, rice krispie treats for classmates, we're going out to dinner, plus I promised brownies. It's a good thing we don't have a birthday everyday. You'd have to roll us out the door.

Happy Birthday Hunter! And if you are wondering why Carter isn't in the picture, he took one look at Santa and the tears started flowing. Definitely not worth the drama.
