Getting sentimental

I don't know what it is, but lately, I've been getting extremely sentimental with Henry.

Maybe it's knowing that in two months I'll be a mother to Henry and another child.

Maybe it's pregnancy hormones.

Maybe it's that my baby is now officially a toddler.

Which means he's a little boy.

Which means he'll be going to school soon and asking me what "sex" is and getting armpit hair and asking to shave and slamming the door in my face and saying he hates me and asking to borrow the car and getting caught making out with a girl and going on college visits and graduating and then, and then, and then {deep breath in paper bag, deep breath}, and then he'll leave me.

Forever.

So in an attempt to hold onto my baby, I've been looking at past videos.

Here is one of him from a year ago.



Precious. Absolutely precious. And he still adores that lovey. He sleeps with it every night. I have a feeling that when he leaves me in seventeen years, I'll be the one sleeping with that lovey.

  1. I couldn't have said it better myself Ali! They grow up so fast. I keep touching AVas little feet that used to be even littler and kissing them before they are big and smelly:)
    Love, Jackie
