Carter is growing up way too fast. Every morning when I get him from his crib and bring him to the kitchen to eat breakfast, I set him on his chair and I stare into his big blue eyes. When did he get so big? When did his hair get so long? When did he figure out how to use a spoon? When did he start potty training? Since when does he know to snuggle me when i need it most? When did he start having tantrums? How did all this happen so fast?

So, here I am at the park just bawling my eyes out on a bench while Carter collects and redistributes rocks, goes up and down the slide, crawls through tunnels and walks in and out of play houses all by himself.  I can’t believe how fast time has gone, and I can’t help but think about what this little boy’s future holds.
