I Declare


A few events have happened this week that have torn my emotions slam up.

We repainted the second floor of our house last week, so we took everything off of the boys' walls in their rooms, including this alphabet wall in Walker's room. 

Because we rearranged things, we took Walker's glider out of his room.  Like.... the glider that was in the nursery before Charlie was even born.  The glider that I sat in while I was pregnant with my first little baby, waiting so anxiously for him to get here.  

We also converted Charlie's crib into a toddler bed, and for some reason, it really hit me hard...as in, I snuck in his room in the middle of the night to hold his hand and give him kisses and cry.  

Sooo.....anyways....because of all these emotions, I took a trip down memory lane and found these sweet, older baby pictures.  But today, I'm going to be much better and enjoy the stage that they're in right now, because honestly, it's kinda fantastic.  I do love these babes of mine.

Excited to be co-hosting my dear friend, Cortne's, "I Declare" link up.  Make sure you pop on over to link up any type of post today!

Aww! When you mentioned changing Charlie's bed into a toddler bed, it made my tears water a bit. We've been thinking about doing that with Isabelle's bed, but I just can't bring myself to do it.

Aw I'm sure it has been an emotional week for your mama heart! Your boys are so precious!!

Oh man. I totally understand! I've been thinking about putting my youngest in a toddler bed but I'm afraid of what he would do to the room if he was free. He already ripped the curtains out of the wall in his brother's room. ahhhh.

They grow up SO fast! I get like that about my nieces and nephews and best friends' kids. I can't imagine what it will be like when they are my own kids!

It is so hard! We did the almost the exact same thing this weekend. I took out the glider from Parker's room. I picked it out when I was pregnant with Ava. I am giving it to a good friend as she is pregnant with a sweet boy and due in December. It will continue to make memories! I am having a hard time that Parker will be 2 tomorrow. It's like there is no way I can pretend he is a baby anymore.

it's so hard for me to look back on things sometimes. I reminisce and i feel like i am missing something from the past that i can't bring to the present. I know, it's silly but I can't help it!

So bittersweet! Give them a big cuddle, and hang in tight as they start to discover who they're meant to be!

Oh my goodness, they have the cutest squishy faces!! Each stage is amazing but it's always crazy to look back on the newborn stage. I mean after all, that's where it all began. So so sweet! You are such a beautiful mother! Your boys are very blessed!

I know what you mean. I have been seeing all these babies being born in blogland and thinking about when my kids were littler. Then, I think of all the positives of their current stages and I don't wish for those times, just remember them fondly. :)

Sarah @ The Not Quite Military Wife said...

I loved watching your boys grow up!

YUMMommy said...

Birthdays always bring out the emotional side of me with my kids. It's in those weeks leading up that I realize just how fast time is going by. It's both amazing and bittersweet watching our little ones at they grow. But I wouldn't trade these moments for anything.

Chelsea Mac said...

Oh the day of the toddler bed....I dread it! What a sweet sweet boy and such a sweet trip down memory lane. Those two just melt my heart!

Kristen said...

I am convinced that one of the secrets of life is to love the stage you are in!!! Such sweet pictures of those sweet sweet boys! :)

I declare that you have the cutest babies :) I can't even image how that would feel, you are the best mamma

Sam M said...

That is just so sweet.

rooth said...

It's been a real pleasure to watch them grow up - even just online. I feel like it was just yesterday that Walker was still scooting around on his bottom refusing to walk

B said...

so sweet how much you love your boys. they sure are lucky to have such a devoted mama!

Courtney B said...

These pictures kill me! So precious! Mia will be 7 months old tomorrow. It kind of makes me sad because... she's definitely not a tiny newborn anymore. My baby is growing and I LOVE that! But it seems like it goes wayyyyy. too. FAST. She's going to be running around and mouthing off before I know it, ha!

LEIGH said...

AWWW! It's amazing how fast they grow and how quickly time flies! I'm already shocked that baby girl is almost two weeks old...
