And He's Off!


It doesn't seem like long ago that this guy came into my life.


Such a sweet little guy.


A BIG bundle of adorable.


Oh, wait. That's just a creep with a skeezy moustache.

A big boy with an even bigger vocabulary, who never ceases to amaze me.
(He's about 15 months old in this video)

My baby started kindergarten today.

He was confident, excited, and ready to go. Far more ready to go than I was to let him go. I have to come to terms with the fact that there's now another lady in his life- at least for 35 hours a week.

I know he's going to rock kindergarten. He told me they worked on their shapes today- coloring them. The kid's known his shapes for years. Heck, he quietly debated whether an oyster cracker was an octogon or a hexagon right around age 4...and came to the right conclusion. (I know he's not a super-genius or anything, but a mom's gotta brag once in a while, doesn't she?)

My baby started kindergarten today. He's growing up.

What a milestone. I clearly and poignanatly remember each of my three girls' first day of kindergarten. Sob! And Willy is such a normal size now!

What an exciting day. However, that picture of Dave looks like he should be an extra on an episode of The Sopranos.

I cannot believe that Will started school today...wow does time fly! So glad that you did not include a picture of Dave with his "beard."

Okay. I have tears in my eyes. It is so hard to believe. Glad he's doing well. Coloring shapes.....come on now. How are you holding up? I'm so not ready.
