A trip down memory lane...

We transitioned D to a toddler bed this past week. He is now officially out of the crib and in a super-cool fire truck bed. He is doing way better than I ever expected in his new bed - going right to sleep without coming out. He does, however, come running down the hallway to our room around 6:15 every morning, but, oh well...he's doing pretty well overall!

This got me thinking about how much he's grown in his 2 short years of life. Here is D snuggled up in his sleep sack and crib when he was abut 5 months old.

And here he is tonight.
(Jan 2011...such a big boy!)
About 2 years ago, I ordered D a big boy car seat for when he outgrew his infant carrier. The day it came in the mail, I put him in it since I knew that one day, I'd want to see how little he was the day he got it. This was that day:

About 20 months is D in his seat. Time flies. It makes me sad. Sometimes I wish I could slow it all down. Just thought I'd share :-)

  1. Love it...before you know it, he'll be in school...then high school, college...and you will be thinking about him all the time...missing him. But you will be glad because you did a good job raising him! It was a lot of work...but a lot of fun. Countless smiles and good memories. And just like our family, you'll have lots (and I mean lots) of pictures to help you remember. Thanks for sharing the pictures. Love you...Mom

  2. I know EXACTLY how you feel. =( I am always browsing through old pictures of McKennon, yet really they aren't that old. He used to be so tiny and cute... and now he's big, cute and can get an attitude. haha
    D is so adorable though, I love that one of him sucking his thumb!
