My baby is no longer a baby..

In about a week, my baby will be 21 months old. Hardly a baby by any means. But he is our last, so he'll be my baby forever. It was hard for me to watch all of our kids leave that baby stage behind. But, naturally, John is the hardest. I do realize time marches on and there is nothing I can to do to slow it down or stop it. I know from experience that the next stages that lie ahead are just as fun and rewarding.But for the time being, I will enjoy the snuggles that he gives just before he lays down or when he wakes up.
And I'll keep gazing into those baby-blue eyes.

Enjoy your time with them all now. Before you know it, they'll be all grown up. These are very precious days.

Amen, they grow fast! When you have them as they are growing, time doesn't seem to fly. But when they are gone from home, looking back, it went fast.

My baby is almost 5. It went way too quickly. But thankfully, he's still willing to snuggle with mom so I can't complain.
