Thursday, February 18, 2010 baby is 5!

So this post has nothing to do with scrapbooking or crafting but I thought I would give you a glimpse into our little family here at

Our oldest little guy is turning 5 this weekend and I am not sure whether to smile or cry. He is sooo excited...he has been looking forward to his birthday, well, since the day after his 4th birthday. He is thrilled by everything to do with his birthday... his parties, presents, cake, being the center of everything. That makes me smile.

But when I look through pictures like the ones below I want to cry. Everyone has told me that time flies when you have children but I did not believe them when I was stuck at home all day with two babies (our boys are 15 months apart), up all night with two babies, etc... But now looking back on it, it surely does. My baby boy is growing up and that makes me want to cry. I can't even think about kindergarten this fall without tearing up....I can already tell this is going to be a weepy year for Mommy :)

Happy 5th Birthday to my little guy, Parker.
