  1. What a beautiful post, and what beautiful pictures. :) They do grow up a little too fast, don’t they?? I always have such mixed feelings while watching my babies grow up…on the one hand I’m so proud of everything that child is learning and accomplishing…but on the other hand I wish I could just find the “pause” button and hang onto their little-ness just a while longer. Or to be able to hit “rewind” and visit that phase once again. sigh…

    Happy Birthday, Scooters!! :)

  2. OH! And the pictures with him pulling his socks off really made me giggle – SO adorably funny! And am I the only one amazed at how stretchy socks are?? :D

  3. Brought back memories of adorable Scooters growing up…but then growing up is part of the plan. Glad you fully understand the great value of caring for a child.
