The other day, I was giving my soon to turn five son a back rub before bed. He was exhausted from a huge day at the beach and needed a little extra love before giving into sleep. He was on his tummy, head turned to the side on the pillow. He little face was squished just right so that I got a precious glimpse of his face as it was when he was a baby. And in that instant, his five little years and five changing faces all flashed in front of me. And even though he is turning five tomorrow, he will always be my baby.
I didn't have time to take a lot of photos from our birthday celebration...but here are a few.
At some point, my sweet two year old and I started calling each other besties. She has other besties too, like her wa-wa's (aka grandmas), her favorite sitters, sometimes her brother, and other "friends" that live in her crib. One day she received a pair of pink leopard print rain boots and that night she insisted on sleeping with her new goodies....they were brand new, of course, and hadn't been worn. She snuggled those boots like a worn out loved teddy bear. This blog is to keep track of all my besties and pink leopard print wellies. xo
