growing older...




there are few things that make rowan seem like a toddler these days and more that make him seem like a real kid. as wonderful as it is to watch him learn and grow, i mostly just feel sorry for myself. i am not ready to raise a real kid. homework. school times. and making proper lunches. letting him go to sleep overs. no! i am only equipped to raise babies and that is how i intend to keep it! ok, not really, but that is how i feel! there are many little things that i catch about rowan that i am trying to hold onto. just a few things that he does that still make him seem like my little baby. for starters there are words that he says wrong. he speaks perfectly clear, but he just mis-interprets the words and i find it completely adorable ...and refuse to correct them. here is an example... shrink instead of sink "don't throw those in the pool, those toys shrink." underarrest instead of arrest "the police will underarrest you if you don't buckle your seatbelt." he is so serious when he says these things and is completely oblivious that he is saying them wrong!

another thing that makes him feel like my baby still is that he loves to be snuggled and have his back rubbed when going to bed. he also needs his blankies in order to fall asleep. i love that he insists on sitting on my lap when we watch a show or movie. it makes me feel like the most important girl in the world! and to be honest i am more flattered when he snuggles with me than when my husband snuggles with me. looks i have fully adapted to being a mom. wonderful isn't it! i just won't let go of these little pieces of him. he has stolen my heart and i don't think i am getting it back anytime soon. now if only i could find a way for these things to still be acceptable when he is a teenager...

I feel the same way ! We have three girls 9,7,&5 and a "baby" boy who just turned 2. I tell them I would love to put them in a "shrinkalator" and keep them tiny and little forever.
