where oh where did my baby go?

Here is a photo of my sweet baby boy just a few days after we brought him home from the hospital. I can close my eyes and remember that brand new baby scent and imagine his soft newborn skin. It feels like it was only yesterday.

It seems like it happened overnight, but he is so much more of a little boy now than a little baby.

He takes every opportunity to climb on anything and everything.

....and he wants to do it all by himself.

He loves to play with balls. He found this dirt and random dog slobber covered one in the grass at the park. Good thing I am not a germafobe. I am sure I am making a few of you moms cringe right now. I did sanitize his hands though once we got into the car.

He did let me help him out going down the slide. I love my little baby boy!
