One {Finer Things Friday}

When I laid him down in his crib tonight, he was my baby.  “Nigh nigh,” he said.

When he wakes up in the morning, he’ll be one.  A whole year. 

Never mind that he’s been walking for six weeks already.  Never mind that he climbs, and hides, and signs (more, please) and talks “all done!”  Never mind that he is fiercely independent and incredibly ornery.

He’ll always be my baby.

What Finer Things are you celebrating this week?  Link up and let us know!

  1. I am celebrating being married to a man for over 30 years that protects and provides for me. It just keeps getting better and better…

  2. We have four children and our youngest just recently turned four..time goes by so fast.

    Your guy is certainly a cutie…Happy Birthday!

  3. Boy, have I become the sappy mom at the ripe old age of 21 😉 This post made me tear up! My little man’s first birthday is less than four months away. Where does the time go?! It seems like having children accelerates it to ridiculous speed.

    Happy birthday to your sweet baby boy. I used to roll my eyes when Mom would say I’d always be her baby. Now? I totally get it. 🙂

  4. My “baby” turns 8 soon. Someone told me the other day she’s beginning to have the willowy look of a young model. I wanted to smack them! She’ll always be a toddler, sitting in the middle of the groceries on the dining room table, sigh. I’ll have to show you that pic sometime! 😉

  5. Already?? My husband mentioned David turning 1 about a month ago and I started crying!! (And we still have almost four months!)

    I can’t believe your little guy is there already. Time goes so quickly. Give him a big squeeze from me!

  6. My Baby is 26 *sob* and 8 weeks away from having a baby of her own *giggle*…I CANNOT wait for the baby shenanigans to begin!!

  7. Thank you for hosting! They grow up so quickly:(

  8. I tell my youngest (who is 4 now) that he’ll always be my baby, to which he always asks, “Even when I’m as big as Daddy?” And I say, “Yes, even when you are as big as Daddy!”

  9. My first grand baby is 20 months old. Time marches… Her mom, my oldest is 27.
    Enjoy your little guy.

  10. Oh Amy! I feel your heart-fullness/heaviness.

    My baby started kindergarten last week. I feel like part of me is missing.

    • Um, I can’t even imagine, and yet… the next 5 years will go SO STINKIN’ FAST! There are benefits to your new normal, too, though, I’m sure. I dream about what all I’ll accomplish when I’m “home alone” and yet, I don’t want to be home alone. ha!

  11. He’s adorable! Enjoy every minute!!!

  12. I am celebrating the love and friendship my young children have towards one another. I knew when my second one came along that I would love them both, but I wasn’t prepared for the bond and love these two have for each other. Watching my tough 6 yr old boy, stop and play baby toys with his little sister is priceless.

  13. Thanks for hosting!


  1. […] is definitely a Finer Thing! Cancel […]

  3. […] We have an “island” here in Wausau. At least that’s what we call it. It’s right downtown, a small spot of land in the river accessible by a bridge. Years ago it was used in logging, back when they floated the logs down the river. Now there is a nice walking path and plenty of  bugs, sticks, and plants to interest little boys. The boys have been asking all summer to go….and we just haven’t gotten around to it. But this week we finally did. We walked the path, and then we fished off the bridge. It was a fun family outing. And it was a Finer Thing. […]
