this boy


I can't get enough of this boy, even when he wakes me up 14 times a night to snuggle (squirm) in my bed. I know he's not technically a baby anymore, but he will always be my baby, I think. Is that what happens when you have your last, you always think they're little, even when they're grown?

Mabel got birds for her birthday, so I had to move his high chair (which he hasn't used in months and months) to make room for the birdcage. I kind of came undone about it. It's sitting now in my teeny office, taking up too much room, but I don't know what else to do with it. I can't bear to get rid of it or put it away.

I'm not usually a sentimental person, but it sure feels that way lately. Must be this blasted heat.

  3. Steph I totally understand. I still call you Uncle Dan "Danny" but just can't help it. Keep the highchair because you will need it you will need it for grandchildren even though that seems light years away. It comes quicker than you can imagine. Love you

  4. Knowing it's your last will definitely do that. And, yes, he'll ALWAYS be your baby!
    I agree, keep the highchair for grandbabies.

  7. I can't get rid of our glider for the same reason. The crib went to Charles and Laura, so that made me feel better.

  8. I am sentimental about all sorts of things, but Addison-things most of all. I can't bear to part with practically anything she laid her chubby hands and legs on. But there are signs everywhere that she is growing up -- like when she came up to me after church, put her hand on my arm and said, "Time to go home, honey." Seriously?
