Who is this boy?



Who is this boy? I was looking at these photos from a photoshoot we did a couple weeks back. When I took the pictures he certainly was my 7 year old boy. But now, looking at these photos, it is like he is someone else. A boy older than he really is.He is confident, caring, funny, eager to learn, eager to please. He seems like a young man sometimes with the things he says or does. Though he loves to play with his friends, pretend and generally goof off so I know he is still a boy.

What happened to that little boy I brought home from the hospital so many years ago? The one I toted over and over again to the doctor? The little toddler learning to walk? That little boy of mine on his very first day of school? There is no stopping these kids from growing up, is there? And really, I wouldn't have it any other way. Each day is a journey, something new. I suppose tomorrow he will be filling out college admission forms....

Sweet pictures....they do grow up WAY too fast...I like the post of the baby watching his brother head off for the bus...our youngest still watches his big sister and brother head off on the bus--it's bittersweet! Come over and visit sometime.

Yes! It passes so quickly!! He's a darling little boy, and a handsome young lad! :*)---Another mom of 3 boys who grew up in the blink of an eye!-----

Great photos of a real charmer.
Yes they do grow so fast, so enjoy everyday. My 3 sons grew up so fast and now have babies of their own.
Savor the days.
God bless and have a nice weekend.

You sound like my mom. She always says it doesn't bother her that she's almost 50, but that makes me almost 30 and my sister 25. When we were wedding dress shopping last summer. The sales lady put the veil on my head and my mom lost it. She was flat out bawling. She said it reminded her of when they brought me home from the hospital the first time with the little pink cap. Don't know how she came to that but oh well. My wedding was a very emotional time for her.

She says no matter how old I get I'll always be her little girl. Just like your boys will always be your little boys.

I want my seven year old to be a baby again! Fortunately, my Peanut looks JUST like her big sister. It's the best of both worlds!
