Motherly Nostaglia.

As I write this ---
I'm snuggling on the couch with my little monster monkey!
{he's sweet & snuggly for exactly the amount of time it takes to drink a sippy cup of milk!}
I have to take advantage! :)

I was looking at the new tooth he is cutting--
(making that #9 - including the molar)
and I started thinking about how BIG he is getting!

He's not a baby anymore!
He's a litle boy!

so independent.
so strong-willed.
so defiant (haha).
so much personality.

and thinking about how big he is, made me a little sad ...
it made me think about those days when he was soo little ....


 I so fondly remember that non-mobile, snuggly, toothless baby!

and then I feel so thankful ...
thankful that I'm able to stay home with him.
To see all his "firsts".
To watch him explore this big world.
To snuggle and watch Sesame Street.
To play games.
To makes messes.
To go to the park & playgroup.
and just spend time together.
because he's only going to be this little once.
and one day - he won't think I'm as cool as he does now. :)
 I don't want to miss a thing.
{because he is growing up WAY too fast!}

Oh and this burst of motherly nostaglia came at a VERY good time ...
because yesterday we had a LONG day like this --


and I was ready to send his cute little butt to daycare! :)
or maybe boarding school.
forever.
