Little Boys Grow Up

Last night I had nice conversation with my best girlfriend about motherhood.  She is the new mommy of a gorgeous baby boy.  We were lamenting how quickly it all goes by, how our hearts sometimes ache for the quickly slipping days to halt their dizzying  progress.

Something about turning four has made my firstborn into a little man.  I look at this picture, and I want to engrave it upon my memory.  He spends so much of his day in constant motion.  He is always running, jumping, learning, exploring, singing, questioning, and growing.  I want to be able to see him in this quiet moment forever.

  2. soak it in. my 4 year old just became a 5 year old and started kindergarten. no more baby. it has really sunk in recently during visits with friends who have slightly younger kids. the friends had expectations of my daughter, not fully realizing…5 isn’t all grown up yet, either.

    Erica, this is so nice. I wish that I could write like you do. I’m to old to learn now. I would love to read more of your writing.
