    I’m first!
    I do that with my older ones. Like ‘how did you get to be almost 11 years old? Where did those boobs come from?!’

    What’s paper?

    I don’t ask B how did he get to be so old. These days it’s:
    “Where did you learn to do the Sprinkler?”  and
    “The roger rabbit? What the hell have you been watching?”

    Because that is what makes me feel old (and the fact that the kid does them in the middle of the driveway by himself or the side of the football field. Just for the record - he has his daddys moves.

    I love baby noises. Gracie is coming up with new noises all the time.

    She is 8.5 months old and I feel like I just had her. I am ready for another.

    My favorite part in the morning is hearing her babble and coo when she first wakes up.

    I don’t know where the time goes, but it does especially go fast when you move.  Don’t I know it!

    Time gets shorter the more kids you have.  The past almost 6 years of my life have gone by faster than the other 31 even thought of. 
    Course that also means that each new day brings a cool new thing that the kid does.  Or sometimes a non cool new thing.  Like blowing snot bubbles.  (I hate that) Or coming home on the very first day of kindergarten and saying “Mrs F taught us how to read today, want me to show you?”

    It slows down. I swear Eli’s been in the tantrumy 2 year stage for what feels like 10 years. Can he be 5 already and in kindergarten, please?!

    My oldest is 19.  I swear he was 5 about two weeks ago. :(

    My Emersyn was a grunter too, when she was nursing.
    I miss when they were newborns - a LOT.  The smell of their soft pink skin after a bath, the fuzzy hair, their little tiny toes.  If I could just have a bunch of newborns then give them to someone else when they are 9 months to, uh, 5 years old, that would be sort of cool.  The toddler years wear me out.  But, really, now that two of them are older and mouthy, I’m deciding the toddler years aren’t so bad either some days.
    And, yeah, it seems to be flying by….I know I’ll blink and they’ll all be gone.
    And, um, yes, what is this paper you speak of?

    I remember when I was in high school and I was like, “gosh, life is just dragging and I want to grow up!” and my mom and dad and other relatives would be like, “don’t rush it, you have no idea how fast life goes!”  I never ever believed them!  I couldn’t understand that life could go faster for them than me at that moment in time. Now, I kinda of wish to go back just for day but I also look forward to the future.

    It totally goes by too fast.

    And then suddenly you hit 2 1/2, and everything slows W-A-Y down. I can’t believe I’ll be doing the newborn thing again soon - at the same time as the potty training/me-do-it/‘I can’t want to” stage!

    I remember those wonderful coos and gurgles…
