Graduation Day

My last born child has now graduated from a crawler to a walker.
Where has the time gone?
It seems like yesterday that I was holding his little body
all wrapped up and warm, and now I can hardly get a hold of the little guy.
He loves to walk in circles around our house and almost breaks into a run here and there!
He is the cutest little walker around-
the way he holds his hands up in the air to balance himself.
Hard to believe he is my last baby.
I'll never experience the sheer joy of seeing first steps again.
sorta sad....
Life is full of these moments- firsts quickly become lasts
the last time I will rock him to sleep
the last time I will hold him
the last bedtime story
It makes me savor those moments because before you know it,
he will be grown and I will not have those special "childhood" times with him.
(can you believe I am crying while I type this?)
I do love my children and even though many times I think I will loose my mind,
they are so special to me and all those little "moments" are priceless.
I am privileged to be a mother.

I can believe you were crying. :-) And I know exactly what you mean. I need to sit back and enjoy these moments more often!
