It's Getting All Sappy In Here

I can't believe how fast she is becoming a toddler. While we all still call her the baby she really isn't anymore. It will no doubt be the bane of her existence when she is a teenager. I am absolutely certain the words Don't call me a baby will escape her lips at some point. But I can't help it. She is my baby. She may be my last baby. I can't help that I will always look at her and think she's little. I want to bottle up this time in her life and save it for a rainy day. Her laugh will brighten any room. She loves to snuggle, kiss, and hug. I am sure there will come a time when she will drive me bonkers. But for now I love every moment of her waning babyhood.

I know exactly what you mean. It wans't till Nathaniel was 9 that we stopped calling him Thanny. A very baby name. He's always been my Little Guy. Probably will be always. He'll be 12 this summer, is already 5'3" and 125 pounds. Still my little one.

She is precious! Hold on through the teen years (don’t' even think about it now!) …. and they get precious again. I've got 22 and 21 year old daughters and they are just as precious as ever!

I didn’t know Flea had a Nathaniel too. ... and it sounds like he's her "baby" like our Nathaniel (7). Nathaniel means - Gift of God. It's true. After reading together last night in bed, I told him I feel sorry for the families that don’t have a little 7 year old boy to love and enjoy.

A girl who drives her mother bonkers??? Things like this happen? No way!

this one will always be Grandma's baby - she told me it will be ok.

Awwww... I found a picture of Jason when he was 11 months old in the basement yesterday and Anna looks just like him, especially in this pic you posted :)

She is so beautiful!! My baby is now 14 and I still call her my baby. Of course she rolls her eyes at me and makes a funny face, but she also allows a smile to escape her mouth. So, no matter what, she'll always be your baby. Keep loving her and enjoying it~
