Little Boy Shoes

(my photos)

How is it that I look at my son on a daily basis and hadn't noticed it.  4 years, 8 months, 10 days. He's no baby anymore.  But, he will always be my baby.  My first baby.  Shoes, that's what it was.  Shoes.  I just happened to walk by and glance down at them.  Empty.  Not wrapped around my son's little piggies.  Not little shoes.  It just hit me.  These are the shoes of a boy.  Not a baby.  Not a toddler.  w.o.w.  Such a simple little thing, but it just jumped up at me.  Where has the time gone.  I will be sending my baby to kindergarten in eight months.  Blows my mind.  I will cherish every kiss, every cuddle and every "I love you, Mommy".  Especially the cuddles.  :)
Where it all started,
 his sweet little baby toes.

Was there ever a moment where you just realized your kiddos weren't babes any longer?


  1. this makes me so sad too...I can't believe my oldest baby will be a sophmore next year. I seldom look at their baby pictures because I end up crying. My mom always said when you become a mom and raise your children that it is the best time of your life...and not to take it for granted..I wish I would have listened to her better..I didn't realize at the time that the years would go by this fast

  2. It's hard for me to believe that Joey is almost 19!! time really does fly. I'm trying to enjoy it all and savor all the sweet moments.

    Thanks for the comment!
