Growing Up

I realized that I hadn't posted any pictures of Tucker on my blog. BAD MAMA.

I hate moments like this. Moments when you realize that times flying, things are changing, and there is nothing in your power to stop it, or even slow it down. My baby is growing up. I guess he's technically not "the" baby, as he's my oldest, but he's MY baby, nonetheless.

I pulled out a scrapbook the other day & was showing it to him- he was about 2 years old in the pictures. I just started crying like a baby!

"Mama, why are you sad?"
"Because you're getting so big. You're growing up."
"But why does that make you sad, Mama?"
"Because when you grow up, you will go off to college & find a girl & get married. Then you'll leave me."
"I'm never leaving you, Mama. I'm gonna marry you. I know Daddy already married you but he won't care."

AWWWWWW. How sweet is that?!?!
