Check out that Kid!

It's funny how things change. For the past several years when school started I would find myself feeling really sad at how quickly the years are speeding by and how fast my little guy is growing up.

But THIS year...things are different! I'm not sad at all, but excited and happy that James is so grown up!

James Day

He's just starting 1st grade and so happy to be back in school. On Tuesday he had an amazing day of first - first day of school in first grade, and he lost is first front tooth!

I'm hoping the other front tooth will fall out before the first one grows in so we can get a solid no-front-teeth-shot which I will frame beside this one:
A Classic Scrunch Smile

Yep, that's my grinning boy with only 4 or 5 teeth back in 2008 when he was 18 months old. It's all going by so fast, but I'm loving every minute of it!

Let's go quilt,



  1. You know its funny - I've never been one that was sad my daughter is growing up. I'm always been really happy to be on the journey and watch her learn and grow. Sometimes I look at old pictures and have a wistful nostalgia, but overall I look forward to her milestones. Even the ones that aren't so much fun. hahaha!

  2. Your kid is so lovely!
    Abrazos desde Costa Rica!
