Sweet Memories

So with April just a few days away, I tend to get all sad and reminise about my kids being babies. Both of them have April birthdays, and I can' believe that Amber is going to be 12 next week, and Adam 16 the end of the month. Honestly, it doesn't seem possible. I know I'm not the only mother in the world who is watching her kids grow up before her eyes, but dang, it's happening fast. It doesn't seem that long ago they were snuggling with stuffed animals and taking mid-day naps. I guess that's what has sparked this sudden run of "baby" layouts I've done. I really haven't purposely picked out baby pictures to scrap, but looking at the last 4 layouts I have done, you would think I'm on a mission to recreate the past. I have thousands (really, THOUSANDS!) of pictures of my kids as babies -- I'm actually glad that subconsciously I've been reaching for some of those baby pictures to scrap. They make me smile. Here they are:
"Beach Bums" - gosh, they were so cute! Adam was (and wouldn't admit it now, but still is!) very protective of his baby sister.

"My Little Buddy" -- here's Adam waking up from a nap when he was about 1 1/2 years old. He was so sweet when he would wake up - not anymore! lol. Well, in his defense, life isn't as easy now as it was then. The only thing he had to worry about then was what would his afternoon snack be when he woke up. Now it's honors classes and homework and deciding what college he's interested in going to.

"It's Barney Time" -- ohhh my sweet baby girl! She LOVED watching Barney. Well, Adam did too, actually, but Amber could watch Barney all day long if I would let her. I just love this picture - especially with Barney hap-hazardly stuck underneath her. Too sweet!

"Napping with Simba" -- And last but certainly not least, my little buddy with his Simba. Simba was ALWAYS by Adam's side. Always. Simba went to the beach, to Mammaw's, to family reunions, out to eat, EVERYWHERE with Adam. I bet he watched The Lion King 50 times in one year. He loved that movie. And this is one of my favorite pictures. So sweet!

Such good memories here! I treasure these pages! I really do! And as proud as I am to see them growing into adulthood, I do miss these special moments.
