Where does the time go?  How is it that this child is almost three years old?

I thought I just had him?

I thought he was just nursing and sleeping next to me in my bed.

I thought I was just bringing him home from the hospital when he was ten days old.

How did we get to this point and who gave my baby permission to grow up like this?  Cause whoever it is is in trouble with me.

  1. My baby girl turns 3 in November and I’m having the exact same thoughts. Who is this big kid and what have you done with my baby??? It’s cliche, but true – it all goes so fast!

  2. He’s such a doll. I can see why you’re upset. My grandma always said, “I’m gonna put a book on your head! Stop growing!” I think this is what she meant. 🙂

  3. Hi Jackie! :^D He came home when he was 10 days old because he was 5 weeks early and was premature. Had to be intubated and the whole deal. He was a good size for 5 weeks early (5 lbs. 11 oz.) but his lungs were not ready. Funny thing is that when he was first born he screamed a good loud one before his body even came out and he cried nicely and pinked up right away when the nurses were looking him over (they were all prepared since he was early) but he looked good so they handed him to me. By the time I got him in my arms he was going pale and I immediately said, “He’s not the right color. Take him back now!” They looked at me funny because they had just looked him over for at least 3 or 4 minutes and he looked fine. So off he went to the NICU… had to be moved to the bigger hospital that day… I left the hospital about 5 hours or so after having him. That was a long ten days! That’s the short version anyway. :^D

  4. Wow, its hard to believe its been 3 years since PW. I have a couple more months til Steven hits that milestone, but I feel his babyhood slipping away. He will start preschool in a couple of weeks. It is bittersweet isn’t it?

  5. Hey Nan,
    Just perused your blog for a bit and caught up on everything. So what’s the deal…is Phil not aging at ALL??? NOT fair!!! Your boys are adorable. No, I can’t believe your babe is almost 3. Time flies when you’re deliriously tired…not sure if I even spelled that word right…and it’s because I AM deliriously tired.
    Anywho, I am wishing we could chat over coffee. I am wishing I could fly to Canada and hang out with you guys for a couple of days. I miss you.
