9 Month Fascination With Clocks

Babies are amazing.  Where did he learn to click his tongue and croak like a frog between each click?  Where did he learn to make up his own songs in baby language?  So many firsts, and sadly, so many lasts. We have seen the last time he stands like a flamingo in the bathtub when…

Six months later…here comes the helmet!

I cannot believe that 1/2 of a year has gone by since we’ve first met our little boy…seems more like a month ago.  People with kids have always said “Enjoy it while it lasts.  Time flies and before you know it they’ll be in college!”.  They weren’t joking.  We’ve already experienced our first ‘lasts’…last time…

    Oh boy, Ry-Will, I just read this. I haven’t been on your site for awhile..too busy babysitting my grandbabes! Yeah, you think Pop would have adored this little guy with his name??? Such a bittersweet life: a beautiful new grandson with my Dad’s name…but we don’t have Pop anymore. Joys unspeakable and sorrows that at times, are crushing. Life this side of heaven.ReplyCancel
