The Wild & Wacky Faces of My Babies

Tomorrow my boy Wyndham turns 3 years old. I’m planning a serious Hot Wheels and Fort themed birthday party for the weekend, cake with family tomorrow night…all while wading through feelings of pride, joy and this slight melancholy ache.

He’s officially turning into a little boy, talking in full sentences, making (clever) jokes and tackling the potty. I’ve found myself day-dreaming of he and his sister’s newborn weeks and baby stages. All of the silly faces made, all of the milestones achieved. My babies might be growing up, but these pictures? I’ll always have them to enjoy.

Here are 24 guaranteed to make you smile too…

    Is there anything better than knit animal hats on babies (and children)? Nope, didn’t think so.

    Poor, unfortunate Sophie met her demise many a time with Abby.

    Giving Me What For

    Hand on hip and all!
