When, people? When?

Peter's 9th birthday was yesterday.   ....sigh...  How did my little man get to be nine-years old and 4 feet 6 3/8 inches tall?

When, people?  When?

Oh how I would love just one day with my little baby back.  One day to hold him, feed him, rock him and sniff his sweet little baby head.  One more day and I would be so happy.

And then after that one day, I would probably looking for my mostly self-sufficient nine-year old.  I think a days worth of diapers and a night of no sleep would be about all I could take!.

Since he celebrated his birthday with a sleepover last week, things were pretty low-key yesterday.  We  went out to dinner with my parents and my brother and then back to their house for cake, ice cream and presents.

I love this face!

I love this face too!

I hear you! My son will be 9 in January. I feel EXACTLY the same way as you said it-"Oh how I would love just one day with my little baby back, but I think a days worth of diapers and a night of no sleep would be about all I could take!."
It really does go by so fast! And 9 sounds so old!!

Just catching up on blog reading. I feel the same way, at times I long for just one day to go back and hold Claire as a baby. I am certainly enjoying this age with her very much but it does go by so fast. I am enjoying reading about all your family adventures!
