I look at him now on a regular basis and say ‘who are you and what have you done with my son?!’
Don’t get me wrong… he’s a great, good, smart, funny, amazing boy! But he is a Big Boy/ Little Man with Big opinions, Big ideas, Big farts, burps, boy things … too independent some days and a prince who wants to be waited on hand and foot other days.
Along the way I have often said to my son ‘I’m going to freeze you if you keep growing.’ We made a pact that as long as he would give me hugs, ‘I love you’s’ and cuddle he could grow. I’m not sure he’s keeping up his end as much as I need but he’s trying and thus is growing bigger and Bigger and BIGGER!!!
I was warned… and now I am warning every parent – it happens so quickly! Enjoy every moment of ‘baby,’ little, cuddles, hugs, ‘I love you’s', the running into your arms and the feeling that you are the most important person in their lives. Because soon, very soon, it will all change and before you know it they will be very BIG!
