Dear Crissy

My baby is a kid and it’s breaking my heart

This rough and tumble little boy has replaced my chubby, drooling baby. He is equally sweet and wonderful, but wow, how does it happen so quickly?

    I feel your pain. I was just getting used to a toddler and my youngest turned three this past weekend, now officially preschool aged!

    I’ve been having the same thoughts lately! I organized my little guys’ closet last week & couldn’t believe that they used to fit in the onesies I found! Got me thinking about how I miss when that were that small & I would just stare at them for hours while breastfeeding… but LOVE how fun they are now! Strider Bike racing, playing architect, and painting together, we have a blast! :D
    Hope your pregnancy is going well!!!

    My first baby is 15 and looks like a man (5′ 11″) …my middle son is almost 13 (5’6″) and transitioning to the no longer looks like a boy, voice changing stage…and my youngest is 6 (48″) and still looks like a little boy…enjoy it, savor it, because ultimately, they grow

    I know how you feel – I can’t believe L is now in kindergarten. I want to stop the world from turning. You are lucky; you get to do it all again :)

    My daughters are 6 and 4 years old, and I have those moments daily especially during the school year. Yesterday, my oldest one looked like such the big kid in her now fitting perfectly jeans and tee-shirt. It just seemed like last month that those jeans were baggy and fell off her hips when she ran. Then, she’ll say something to me that breaks my heart! On the second day of 1st grade, she told me that I didn’t have to walk her to class anymore because she was a big girl. She gave me a hug and left me choking up at the bottom of the school house stairs.
