My boy is growing up so fast

Yesterday was Cole's kindergarten graduation. This picture was taken at the beginning of the school year. Oh how long ago this seems. My little man, the youngest, is growing up so fast. To see him in his shirt and tie, black dress pants and dress shoes.... oh how time flies. He was so proud of himself. I remember the day I brought him home from the hospital at a whopping 7 pounds 8 ounces!!! Today he almost weighs the same as his big sister and is almost as tall!!

Yes, my little man was so adorable, in fact ALL of the kindergarten graduates were so adorable.
If you wanted to see Cole you only had to look for the crowd of children around him. He loves the attention and is so charismatic. He is definetly the life of the party and he enjoys it.

They were all dressed so nice, but not afraid to run around and play or even get a time out. You can dress them up as little ladies and gentlemen but they are still only 5 and 6 years old and are not afraid to let it be known. In the very next moment all sitting together lined in a row, with the sweetest poses and best manners they are ready to recieve their diplomas. After a prayer about God making them son shouts out that he sees an ANT ( yes he loves to squish ants, thankfully he didn't then). That gave the parents all a little chuckle.

He is always making a joke or a funny face...Yes, even in a crowd. I cannot wait to get my pictures back. I was able to get one at just te right moment. The moment when he was getting his diploma. He had in one hand his diploma and in the other he had his black graduate hat...arms raised in the air above his head and shouts out YES!!!! This remined me of a scene in a teen movie when the kids are graduating highschool.

So now with my DD moving into grade 4 and my DS moving into grade 1 I feel pretty old. Not in a bad way because I am proud of all they have accomplished, and all they will accomplish in the future. I know there will be many more special moments in their future.......... all of which are sure to bring a few more tears of joy to this mothers eyes.


  1. One thing I've learned is that they grow up FAST! You just enjoy all the small moments as long as you can!

  2. Yeah I hear ya :)
    I mean really I know I will miss our snuggle times and all the little things when they are older.

  3. Though we all know very well that all newborns grow up normally,we are really astonished to see our own kids growing up, watching their developments and pranks. Your sentiments are beautifully expressed and very well too. The next suprise is when we see our grandchildren grow up, to know that our kids are their parents!!! Only those who experience this can derive utmost pleasure in watching these developments.
