{my almost one-year-old}


I can't believe I almost have a one-year-old.
The thought has been making me weepy.
It has gone by too fast.
Soon, he'll be graduating high school and getting married.
I can't even think about that right now.

He's been doing new things recently,
like letting go of things so he can stand on his own and wiggling to get out of my arms.
Just a few days ago he would be the happiest in my arms. Now he can't wait to get out of them.
Last night, I discovered he is cutting a new tooth. 
It made me sad.
Isn't that crazy?
I think that deep inside, as long as he had four teeth, he would still be my little baby. 
My little boy with the cute four teeth.
Now he's going to have five and become a man.
I know. It's so silly. I'm not sure where I get these ideas from.

I cleaned out my pictures folder in my computer Saturday night 
and spent too much time looking through the 19,204,695 pictures of the Snake.
He was such an itty baby 
(not so bitty- normal size- but bitty in my arms).
Didn't he come out of me like yesterday??

I'm happy he's growing up. I'm excited he's going to walk soon and have a mouth full of teeth. 
But I can't help but feel a little bit of a heavy heart when I realize he's not going to be a baby forever.

PS: I'm crazy but Sarah's post on her blog, Memories on Clover Lane, made me tear up today. 
One day not too long from now I'm going to put the Snake on a bus to school... 
where someone else will see him grow for a quarter of the day.

It seems like every baby gets to toddlerhood even faster, so prepare yourself! The next phase is always equally sweet...just different. They never get too old to be adorable!
