Toddler??? But you still look cute in onesies!

I spent a lot of Jack's b-day thinking about one year ago...going to the hospital, starting to cry as we checked in, Dan helping me to breathe, Jack being born and then quickly whisked away to the NICU...thinking we were in such a better place this year! At the end of the day, I received my weekly "baby" update via email that a website sends out, telling you what to expect of your baby as they develop. I cried as I sat at the computer because it was a short paragraph about how my baby is now a TODDLER? What??? How can my precious little one that is so stinkin' cute be considered a toddler already? It hit me, I finally REALLY understand why a wise wise man (my father) told me not too long ago, "You'll always be my baby." People can call Jack what they want but yes, "He will always be my baby" too! I am so fortunate to experience parenthood...

A toddler already??? I don't think so - he's still a baby in my book :)

We have been thinking about you all week here in Wisconsin. We hope Jack had a great birthday, it looks like it was a hit. We knew his Mom and Dad would make it a special day. You are right, how can Jack be one? How can you be a Mother? How can you be a wife? Did you graduate from college? Did high school go past in a flash? When did you get to be (almost) as wise as your Dad? Yes, hold on tight, parenthood is not only a wild ride but a fast one!
