Happy 20 and 47 months, kiddos!

My babies are growing up entirely too fast! Today, Lexie turned 20 months and Dylan turned 47 months. In just one short month, Dylan will be 4. I can't believe it. Even worse, my BABY will be 2 in 4 months!

Dylan is so grown up now. There's not much baby left in him anymore. The only time I catch a glimpse of "babyhood" is when he sleeps. Tonight, he fell asleep in my arms, and I had a flashback to his baby years. Until I stood up to take him to bed, and realized he's practically as tall as me!
He proudly wore his new batman pajamas tonight, complete with light up bat wings, a cape, and matching slippers. He flew around the house, announcing that he is not Dylan, he is BATMAN! I even found myself kissing his cheek, and saying, "Goodnight, Batman" as I put him into his bed. He tells me every day that he really wants to go to school. I just think to myself, "Not yet. Please. Not just yet." But I know that time is coming all too soon. When he was born, 4 years old seemed like it was decades away. Little did I know that it would pass quicker than I could even imagine. And here he is, facing his 4th birthday in one entirely short month.
He may be my big boy, but he will always be my baby.

Lexie has changed so much in the past month, but thanks to her (lack of) hair, she still looks like a baby. Just a really ginormous baby! She has quite a vocabulary, and doesn't hesitate to use it...even when we have no clue what she's saying. I mean, how were we supposed to know that "Wah Toe! Wah Toe!" is translated to Wet Toe?
I argue with her on a daily basis. Everything is a baby to my baby doll obsessed child. The carved pumpkin sitting on our counter for example. "Eeeet sa baby!" Lexie proclaims. "No, it's not," I say. "EEETS A BABY!" Me:" NO, it's a pumpkin." This will go on an on, so I just give up and walk away. Stubborn child. I wonder who she gets it from?
My daughter has a temper on her that you wouldn't believe. She loves to scream and let her feelings be known. She beats the crap out of her big brother and ends up in time out several times a day. I would be lying if I said I didn't love her feist.
I am head over heels in love with my daughter. She exudes so much adorableness that I can't even take it! It's like sugar overload!

I won't lie to you. I love my son just as much.

Time for another? ;) Not just yet. I need another year or two! Really, though, where does the time go?

On that note, Happy 20 months and 47 months to my beautiful babies! I can't believe how far we've come.


  1. I can't believe Dylan is about to be 4....or that Lexie is close to being 2! Everyone says it goes by quickly, but you don't understand just how quickly until you have your own. Love the pics and what you wrote about both of them...very sweet!

  2. Great entry. Time flies, huh? Wonderful writing.

  3. Wow!! Dylan can't be almost 4 yet??? They are both growing so fast...Cute pics!

  4. That is a cute boy you have there and he is growing up to be even cuter. Those are such adorable pictures. Wishing him a healthy and happy life.


I love hearing from you! Let's chat!!!
