My inspiration for this record of my days:

“The biggest mistake I made [as a parent] is the one that most of us make. . . . I did not live in the moment enough. This is particularly clear now that the moment is gone, captured only in photographs. There is one picture of [my three children] sitting in the grass on a quilt in the shadow of the swing set on a summer day, ages six, four, and one. And I wish I could remember what we ate, and what we talked about, and how they sounded, and how they looked when they slept that night. I wish I had not been in such a hurry to get on to the next thing: dinner, bath, book, bed. I wish I had treasured the doing a little more and the getting it done a little less” -Anna Quindlen

A boy becomes a man


The Boy


The Little Man   sniff…sniff…


PS  If you can’t tell what qualifies him as a man now, it’s the haircut and a tooth!


  1. WOW he has gotten big so fast!!!! Last time I saw him
    he was being a snuggle bunny - I'm sure he still is but yes, the haircut did age him. haha

  2. He's sooooo cute! I could eat him right up! But then i wouldn't be able to look at him any more. That would be tragic! LOL! Becca

  3. Simon!!!!!! I totally love him!!!!!! Savannah
