It was as though he joined some "Big Kid Club" with his two older brothers and was ready to put his new membership card in his back pocket.
I know it's inevitable...healthy even for him to turn into an itchy, smelly, burpy boy. It just makes your heart ache for your sweet little one that used to curl up in your lap and fall asleep.
It was a fun birthday. He's been playing with his "cool" new toys with his big brothers and it's wonderful to listen to them "hang out" together. I know that in about a minute, they'll all be grown and getting ready to move on.
Even though there's quite some time between the ages of five and eighteen, I'll hold onto every single day that I can - even the ones that are filled with hysterical laughing, snorting and burps all around. .
