I’m Hoping They Soar!

Growing up is something we know will happen.

We miss the tiny sweet babies and the hugs from little arms and hands with tiny fingers curled around our own.

Son #5
Son#6 9-14-03

I read a post from Living in La La Land Blog. Her baby is no longer a baby. I can totally relate.
My last 2 are boys. One just turned 11 and the other is 9. The 11 yr old starts 6th grade in the fall. The first five are all taller than me, I'm 5"2' so thats nit saying much. The youngest was a preemie and has a little while to surpase me. I prayed that all my kids would be at least of average.

Above are my boys, the last of my kids. These two chubby cheeked boys are now 11yr and 9yr. It is hard to believe they are that old! Little Buddy (top) and Mongo (bottom) are getting too big, too fast.

One day they will be graduating high school and I'm still not ready. But it will come any way whether I want it to or not. Time passes so fast, in the blink of an eye, there grown and gone. Hopefully not too far!

    Oh honey, I totally under­stand. I was only blessed with 2 of them, but my baby is about to turn 18 and is get­ting ready to start her senior year of high school. The old­est is serv­ing in the US Navy and is about to turn 21. I don’t know how that is pos­si­ble, I’m only 29. LOL

      Our old­est is 19yr, then these are the “babies”. The blog­ger I read was talk­ing about her son that was 11yr. I can’t imag­ine any mom that wouldn’t get it. :)

      They do grow so fast!

    Those two boys were/are absolutely adorable! I will tell you it is kinda nice that peo­ple mis­take me for his sis­ter! lol
    I can’t imag­ine the way my par­ents felt when we were grow­ing up and doing things we shouldn’t have but it’s still shock­ing to see/go through when it’s your own chil­dren.

    Such cute lit­tle boys! My son is only 3.5, but time has totally flown by! Now we’re expect­ing twin girls and I know that’s going to make the time pass faster. Excit­ing and sad all at the same time.
