    I know it. I've got a 7 year old and she's getting so big...when she falls asleep and i hav to carry her to bed...she's just so long and I'm so short to start with. sniff sniff.

    Then there's my 3 yr. old and I ask her, "are you my baby?" and she says, "no, i a lil girl." [​IMG]

    Ben not quite 2 years old
    This is him laying on my lap in a hospital room , one of something like 2 dozen hospitalzations , poor guy had a File at his local peds office that was so thick by 8 months that it coudnt fit into the slot on the door [​IMG]
    That part of him being small I wont miss , its nice to go see Dr a couple times a year and not a couple times a week [​IMG]

    Here he is at 8 months old it was one of are many day trips to one of two childrens hospital about 2 hours from our home the binder with him is medical records but those were mostly just tests results and evaluations so you could imagine what his chart looked like.
    I just cant bealve he is four ....
