watching them grow…

I admit that there are days that I wish away and I know one day I will wish for them back.  That is what I was thinking this morning Adam was sitting on my knee having a cuddle and enjoying every moment of it.  We were chatting and I told him he is getting to be such a big boy.  He loves being called a big boy but today he said “yes, me a big boy, me a little boy too”.  I think even he is realizing that he barely fits in my arms any more.  I loved hearing those words but at the same time I got a sick butterfly feeling in my stomach.  I know I’ll miss this and when I’m snuggling or reading or he is laying on my tummy at bedtime I am treasuring every moment.
