Baby all grown up :(

WAAAAAHHHH..I miss this stage!!

His cool New bike:)

Mommy LOVES you!!

3 years ago yesterday, I was pushing my LAST baby out....Mason....It was kind of a sad day for me, as knowing this is my LAST baby and he is not a baby anymore...Something about when they reach the age of 3 they lose their little baby personalities and turn into little boys...I LOVE the little baby stages, .I like the snuggling, the cooing, the SMELL, the unbreakable bond, the innocents,the baby steps, all the cute little FIRSTS...the first smile, the first laugh, the first goofy tooth, the first step, you get my point a lot of fond, beautiful memories ....I find myself thinking ONE MORE BABY...then SNAP, what the HECK am I thinking....NO WAY, ARE YOU NUTS!!!! So even though my Mason turned 3 he will always be my baby:)

Off the Birthday subject.....My husband Todd did Rhode Island half Ironman over the weekend and did awesome...hit a've come along way maybe I will listen to some of your training advice to me.....Nah (JK)
Happy day to all!!!

happy bithday mason! i hear you about the little babies though - sometimes i see a little one and think, oh wouldn't that be nice!?!? then i remind myself to snap out of it as someone still doesn't sleep all night and i have just moved out of that constant zombie state.

What a handsome young man... he's got great gene's to work with! My oldest turned 7 on the 12th.. I know it's clique' to say but it really does feel like it was yesterday that I was watching him come into this world.. The greatest commodity this world has to offer is youth.. even though were in it for a very short time. Soak in the moment and reap the rewards and the challenges they bring! Happy birthday Mason!

It is the "firsts" that make raising children such a joy. Now, I get to look forward to my kid's children. I get to spoil them, enjoy their firsts, then send them home with Mom and Dad :-)

Happy Birthday, Mason!!

(congrats to hubby too!!)

Happy 3rd bday Mason! I asked Jerome the other day...."Honey, are you sure you are done?" hee hee..tick tock goes the clock, I said. He just looked at me like I told him we won the lottery, "ARE YOU NUTS?" hee hee....I don't love the baby stage, so yes, we are done, but it is sad...and I only get to go thru each stage ONCE with twins. BOO HOO. :) congrats to todd on his race! :) JEN H.
