  1. He is adorable.. both his baby picture and now as a 3 year old boy! My baby boy turned 11 in May.. how is that for sad? It’s amazing how quickly they grow and change… but it is great and wonderful to see them blossom into amazing people.. and we get to witness it all.

    • Courtney K. says:

      I agree. Watching him grow is the biggest blessing. I sit back and wonder sometimes what I did to deserve that opportunity. 🙂

  2. I love your blog girlie! And yes. Our kids grow up wayyyy too fast!! Your son is adorable!

  3. Courtney says:

    That’s exactly when I sit up and take notice of just how far Presley has come. She communicates so effectively for a 2 year old that it’s insane and scary.

    • Courtney K. says:

      It’s definitely scary. But it’s exciting at the same time to watch them learn to grasp concepts and thoughts. But, I’m sure he’ll reach that “I know more than mommy” mode soon enough and it won’t be so cute anymore.

  4. Anastasia says:

    What a cutie! I can’t believe how fast they grow.

  5. Jessica says:

    I’m right there with you with this “boy mom” stuff. I need to learn to like dirt and LOTS of noise. Great shots!

  6. From that cute gummy smile to that determined run…it’s amazing. Your description of his riding in thought says so much. I always wonder what little kids are thinking about when they’re quiet.

    • Courtney K. says:

      I wish I knew, sometimes! 🙂 He’s probably thinking that his mommy is a nutcase and he wishes she would stop shoving the camera in his face. Haha!

  7. Kimberly says:

    He’s so cute! It’s amazing how fast time goes by, isn’t it? I know it’s cliche, but seriously? So. Fast. I wish we could freeze time and keep them small and home with us all the time!

  8. Erin says:

    Awww he’s adorable! Smart too that he calls the dog over to clean up his mess! haha

    • Courtney K. says:

      Oh yeah! That’s a lesson I’m kind of glad he’s learned. It sure saves on the clean up time! 🙂 Ha!

  9. Wow….he was a CUUUUUUUUUUUTE baby! We all know he’s a darling little toddler, but I didn’t know him as a babe 🙂 But man it flies by huh??

    • Courtney K. says:

      Thank you! I was pretty partial to his little chubbiness as a baby. 🙂 I wrote about him a lot as a baby, but I think most of those posts have been lost in the archives. 🙂 And YES time flies too fast!
