Where does the time go...

Today was the first time that my little guy rode in his car seat facing the right way. The entire way to daycare I could see his smiling face in my rearview mirror and I loved every minute of it. I could see him so facinated with the road, my changing the radio stations, and my singing in the car.

I remember when I brought him home from the hospital and I was so afraid of breaking him. I stressed over every little wimper and cry and could not wait until he was big enough to sit up and crawl. There are sometimes now with how busy he is and how he won't let me snuggle him (unless completely exhausted) that I miss my little baby who slept all the time nestled on my shoulder.

I cannot believe how quickly this year has gone by. In just 2.5 weeks my child will be one year old. My sister asks me all the time if I can remember what life was like before Zander, yes of course I can, it was much easier, but not as sweet or rewarding. He is the best.

P.S. Don't mind his crazy Einstein hair in the first picture! He had just gotten up and we were in a hurry!


  1. Yeah... what the heck? What happened to our babies? I feel like it's been like a month since we had them and now we both have toddlers who crawl everywhere and wiggle non-stop. They get big too fast.

    He is so darling, Tammy. I swear he gets cuter everyday. Love his sweet little personality.

  2. This is a landmark day! He is now going to LOVE going on car rides. YAHOO!!!!!!

  3. He's in such good spirits for just having woke up. And what a cutie! I sure love that boy! I can't believe we're going to have a big birthday boy on our hands. Yikes! Wasn't I just talking to you in the delivery room a few weeks ago? Wasn't it just a short while ago when you were stressing out about breastfeeding? My oh my, time sure does fly. Give my nephew a big big hug from his aunt Sarah, and tell him I love him so so much. Miss you guys.
