She's Growing Up

After Charlie got up from his nap, and before we had dinner,
I took the kids outside to get some fresh air. 

I pushed Charlie in his little car/bike/thingy
and Claire rode on her 'tooter scooter'
(which is a term coined from 'Wow Wow Wubbzy')

I watched her as she rode along and it just struck me how old she's getting.

She's turning 4 soon and all signs of a baby have disappeared.

I know I'm not supposed to get sentimental until her actual birthday
but my little pookey baby is no long a baby. 

... sigh ...

she really is becoming a Big Girl.

don't get me wrong - I love it

but I also miss this
(although, the fact that she's potty trained now is a pretty sweet deal)

She is so adorably cute! It's weird how some days it just hits you, "they're growing up". :( I always love your pictures of your little kiddies. They have such meaning in them. Congrats on your loving family R! :)

Claire is beautiful. The future holds so much for mother/daughter moments...good times and challenging times, but they are oh, so worth it. And I love the two bottom teeth pictures, the cutest!

I hear you... it really does go by way to fast. Just wait til your youngest is close to 4 (cue the tears) it is HARD!

She was the cutest little peanut ever when she was a baby Rachel and is just as sweet now but in an older kinda way. Makes us mamas a little sad sometimes!!

Love this post. I remember similar moments with my girls, realizing that the baby in them is gone. Good times to come, however. Four might just be my favorite age.
