Happy Third Birthday Little Man!

When I was in high school, I remember either my sister or I {at this point I honestly can't remember which, as we both were involved in theater} being in the production of Fiddler on the Roof.  Just the other day, I came across one of the song's lyrics from the musical:

Is this the little girl I carried?  Is this the little boy at play?
I don't remember growing older.  When did they?

I know that Little Man is only three years old today.  But three years old.  When did that happen?

I feel like I've just barely blinked and three years have passed.  The number of times I've wiped a face, held a hand, soothed a cry, or given a kiss seem to be the same today as they were yesterday - as they have been forever.  I almost don't remember life before Little Man was born, but it's hard to imagine the tiny face we brought home from the hospital now almost looks like a real child's face instead of just a squishy baby.

As I was going over the photos of Little Man's second year, it's almost like the photos of the beginning of the year look like a totally different kid than the photos taken within the last month or two.  He truly is turning into a Little Man.

Just thinking back to that night Little Man was born three years ago - my life was forever changed to be so fantastically better, deeper, more meaningful.

Happy Birthday, little love of mine.

  1. "I don't remember growing older. When did they?" I am putting these lyrics in my quotes file right now! It's so true. I don't really feel older, and I sure don't feel like my kids are kid-kids and not babies. But somehow it's happening. And yet at the same time, like you, I can barely remember my life before them. It feels like I've been this way forever. So funny how that works. Happy birthday, Little Man!
