I’ve been telling Tucker for weeks that he was going to be a whole hand old. FIVE! How is it that my baby boy is now five years old?
Tucker was born on a Thursday afternoon, five years ago. It’s funny how, as a parent, birthdays are such bittersweet moments in life. Tucker is over the moon to be turning five, heck, he can’t wait to grow up. He tells us that all the time. Me? I’d be okay if I could turn back time.
I look at pictures from when he was an itty bitty baby and I wish I could go back. Savor those moments more than I did. Smell his sweet baby smell, cuddle his tiny warm body. Most pictures I can look at remember instantly the moments that surround the picture, where we were, what we were doing, what happened before & after the click. But at the same time, I look at the pictures and can’t remember, either. Can’t remember what it was like to be a first time momma to an innocent baby boy, so fresh & new to the world.
Five years from now? Ten? I can’t even imagine!
Happy Birthday, sweet boy! We love you…please don’t grow up too fast!
