Where does the time go?
















I can't believe it's been so long since I posted on my poor little blog, but with my mother in law visiting, my trip to visit my parents in Pennsylvania, and my grouty projects, I just haven't been able to find much time for sitting down quietly and reflecting on what's going on. But I am making a mental promise to myself that I will post every day this week, even if it kills me.

Speaking of time flying, the last baby I birthed turned 8 two days ago. I really had no idea the day we had that ultrasound done that it would be possible to love a little boy as much as I love this boy. He just jumped on my bed a moment ago to say good morning and start asking me questions I barely know the answers to, and send his great mop of floppy hair askew.



I know I have to cut it soon, but it's so wild and funny unbrushed and so like a 70s tv star when it is, I can't quite bring myself to do it (and I haven't had a minute. His dad keeps complaining that his own hair is like Ted Koppel, which makes him very grouchy.)





And if Vin is 8 then his "Baby" is nearly that. He looks pretty good these days, but I've lost track of how many times my mom and I have sewn his head and arms back on. Mom made it for him when he was tiny and we always called it "cuddle bear" until the night that Vin, who couldn't have been more than 18 months old dubbed him "BeBe." He's been Baby ever since and has had many a wild adventure, but his days always end in the arms of a little boy who won't be little much longer.



Like the Lego cake? So did Peggy.

OH MY YERD!!! I can't believe how old the little dear looks!! I wouldn't want to embarrass him, but he really is very pretty and yet, all boy. I just wanted to cry, because after hearing his sweet voice on the phone and then looking at his picture...I just wanted to hug him and tell him I love him and miss him. Happy Birthday Vinnie.....and NaNa says to stop growing. You should stay right where you are for...at least....three years. OK?...Yeah, I know...I'm crazy for wishing.

Oh happy Birthday to your baby with GREAT floppy hair. That hair is so in right now. All the cuties on the Disney channel have it. Nice. I love BeBe. Such a sweet lovey. Kaishon doesn't have one of those, but he does have my dad's old t shirt. He keeps one with him at bedtime! We call it chewy. Very endearing, right? : ) Your summer sounds so busy.
