Slow Down

Today is my baby boy's 15 month birthday (yes, I still celebrate his monthly birthdays although I probably shouldn't after he hit the year mark)! I can't believe how fast time is flying by. I feel like this was just yesterday.



We no longer have a little baby, we now have a little man on our hands! Who is quite the walking machine and desperately trying to talk. My sweet boy has a mind of his own and does not like to be told no! He loves to hug anybody and everybody and will glady share his food or milk with you. He still melts my heart like no other.



I want to just freeze time and enjoy this sweet time period with my growing baby. I feel like in the blink of an eye he will be in college! I count my blessings everyday day that God gifted me with this perfect baby boy.



I awlays thought I would like my kids to be exactly 2 years apart and well that would be mean I would have to get pregnant this month. Not gonna happen! My hands are so full with this energyball I can't imagine being preggers on top of chasing him everyday! I definitely want more kids but I am going to relish in this time period where Sterling will be an only child for a bit longer!



Happy 15 Months Birthday Sterling.



I love you to the moon and back again!



A million times over!



You give new meaning to my life



and I am so proud to be your Mommy!

Aw, he is such a doll...I know what you mean about the kiddos close together...we thought that should be the plan with ours and we had such a hard time getting preggers the first time we thought we should start a little early...so then we ended up with kiddos 21 months apart. Brilliant, aren't we??? About the same time we found out we were pregnant was the time we were thinking "two??? who the heck does this more than once???" (c: But of course we adore them both...but the closeness, not so much!

Adorable. My kids ended up being 3 1/2 years apart, and it's been great. I feel like I've really been able to have quality time with each one of them.
