All growed up

The crib is long gone. As is the changing table.

You couldn't find a diaper in this house if you tried. Pull-up either.


We don't have a proper sippy cup in our cupboards. The little forks and spoons have been passed on to someone else.


I go to bed without any little bodies in there with me (although I do still usually wake up with one). There are no quiet sounds of a baby or toddler nursing in the dark of night.

It's official: I'm no longer the mom to a baby, or even a toddler. My youngest is five today. Wow.

Happy Birthday D. Number three made our family complete.

Just beautiful. Happy birthday Dante!

Love, your friends who are counting down the days until there are no diapers, sippy cups, and little bodies next to big ones in the bed.

I didn't know he had only one arm! And what's that thing growing out of his ear? You certainly are an odd family.

Well, your hubby opened the end table in the family room and was surprised to find an old stash of diapers in there. At least they were clean! Ha!

Happy Birthday DJ. WE LOVE YOU!!!

This made me a little weepy. It is unbelievable to me that we have come to this stage in our life. We have officially moved on to the next stage (well not totally for me)! Sometimes I think I'm ready for it sometimes I think I need another baby!

Happy Birthday again to Dante!
