Say it isnt so....

Today at our first MOPS meeting of the year one of our mentor moms asked about Travis. She casually asked "how old is he now?" I replied, "Almost 10 months."

My how time has flown, last year this time I was pregnant with him. I was fixated on her question pretty much all day. For some reason I was just really stuck on it. Could it be because he is just shy of a year old and will enter the toddler years? Is it because he might be the last baby we have? Is it because he is almost "not" a baby anymore? I know, I know. He will always be my baby. But seriously he is just shy of not being a B-A-B-Y anymore. This truly made my heart sad.

So tonight when I was putting him to bed, I inhaled all his baby freshly bathed scent I possibly could. I snuggled him a little tighter. I prayed over him just a little bit longer. I shed a tear when I lied him down and slowly walked out the door whispering "Good Night Travis, I love you....baby."

Seeing the pictures of how he has grown over the months, brought lonely tears as we have missed seeing him and Campbell grow. Time sure does go fast when you don't want it too, and other times seems to stand still. I often find myself looking back over the year and seeing baby picture os my two babies and I at times can not believe that now both are grown and in the own homes. God blessed me with two wonderful children and one has given us two beautiful grandchildren to love even tho it is from a far. Miss you all.

Such a sweet boy....makes me teary-eyed. Mine will be 3 in 2 weeks, and I just can't believe it. I've considered him a baby all this time. And now....I think he's turning into a big boy....
