A Big Day for Our Boys

Wednesday was a monumental day for our family...Asher turned 11 months old (sniff), and Tristan officially had three more days of being three (sniff, sniff). I just absolutely cannot believe it. How did my babies get so big?! I am loving every stage and just wishing I could freeze time a little, but I can't. My boys are growing up. Here are some pictures of my boys, celebrating their big day...

Here is Asher having some fun on the coffee table at work.
Look at that sweet smile!!! He makes my heart melt!
Here's my big boy...three more days being three! Look at his sweet smile. He, too, melts my heart! He is just growing up too fast! To me, three is the last year of being a baby. At age four, they aren't babies anymore (sniff, sniff, SNIFF). I will say, though, he will ALWAYS BE MY BABY!!!I love this picture. I was trying to get Tristan to smile, and he always says, "What kind of smile do you want?" So I told him, "I want the kind of smile a boy would give his mommy who was going to have a dinosaur party for him." This is what I got:
He actually became a dinosaur. Not exactly what I had in mind, but precious all the same. He is my little dinosaur!
Lately, I've been telling him that he's getting so big and that it makes me kind of sad. So now, anytime I tell him I'm feeling sad, he tells me, "Mommy, I'm not going to grow up and leave you!"
If only he knew. One day, another woman will capture his heart.
For now, I am going to soak in the blessings of being his #1 lady.
I love you, Tristan! I love you, Ash Be-Dash!
Tomorrow is Tristan's last day of being three. I'm sure it's going to be a tough day for me!

Annie - I can't believe Tristan is going to be four. I love the dinosaur picture. He's going to love that one when he gets older.

Annie Coleman! This is my second time trying to post this, so if it comes up twice, I'm sorry. Can you tell I'm somewhat new to this?
Donna told me about your blog and it's adorable and your family is beautiful! I'm just starting a blog, so add me to your list: I have so many things to learn from you! I'd love to catch up, but this is pretty close. Your boys are adorable and happy birthday to your big man! I hear you about the kids growing up. It's a heart wrencher. We have 2 boys, too: Owen- 2 1/2 and Harris- 5 months.
I would love to hear from you soon. Hi to Channing, too!
Love and hugs,
Hillary Hart (Dunham)
