A Big Boy

It's official. My grandson is a big boy!!! He is sleeping in a big boy bed (since Wednesday) and he peed in the potty today!!! I am not happy. He is talking so much more too. While coloring with him the other day, he looked up from his page, and said (as grown up as could be) "Grandma. My favorite color is green." I was SHOCKED, as he is such a baby talker normally. Here he is creating my apron he gave me for Christmas.Are you thinking what a great job I did taking these pictures?? So clear and light. Well that is because my son and daughter in law took them. They just e-mailed them to me. I am thrilled with all of his recent accomplishments but I so miss the baby that would cuddle into my neck and fall asleep cradled in my arms while I rocked him to sleep. He always smelled so good and his hair was always so soft. Oooooh, I want another grandbaby!!! I am going to miss baby TJ!!!!

sigh.....they do grow up, don't they? Just like the kids! My oldest grandson will be SIX in February and my own baby is almost nine. Your TJ is sure a cutey-pie! You will enjoy his big boy years, too. I promise!

I am really enjoying your blog! You keep a beautiful house! I have 4 boys, the oldest is 8, and my hubby tells me this is it, no more babies, and my youngest is fast growing out of the cuddly stage! ~sigh~ I feel your pain!

Blessings!

I feel the same way, I wish they didnt grow up! I like that they can do things on their own, but I sure do miss snuggling and smelling fresh new babies. Thats why I want more. :)

I would love another grandchild too... not going to happen I fear.

He is very cute! I know how you feel about them getting older. My youngest is growing up too fast. It makes me want another baby - but at my age I think I need to hold out for the grandbabies now.
