The Last Hurrah

This is what happens by 9:45am when you decide to get up at 5:30. Regardless, I love that face. At nineteen months, I'm calling this the last hurrah of babyhood. He's still my sweet baby, complete with squeezable baby cheeks, legs, and buns. I could just eat him up! He also still lays his head on my shoulder when bedtime is approaching and I scoop him up, blankie and all. But new words are coming out of his mouth every week; he climbs into his own booster seat when he's hungry; he sometimes won't eat until I give him a utensil, even for a bowl of goldfish. By the time he's two, he will look more like a boy... I'm almost surprised to say it, but I don't know if I'm ready for this boy to graduate babyhood.


  1. I was looking at pictures of a year ago and thinking the same thing about Soren today - he was such a baby! I even wrote a blog post about it that will be up next week. Glad you realize it before it's gone. Kiss those baby cheeks!

  2. Wow, each stage is a marvel! How very blessed Chase is to be in such a loving family.
