Too quickly, time goes by. I had Squeaker in October 2006. We had Big Guy in March 2011. It’s had to believe how long it’s been. Hard to believe that I have TWO talking and walking children now. Both just as stubborn as the other.
I ask you, though, how did Squeaker suddenly turn 6? I live in denial of his age. Of course, he’s in Kindergarten. But he talks like children much younger than him and fits into 4T clothing still. I’m allowed to see him at 4 still, right? But he’s not. He’s 6 years old. He’s 6 years old and actually watched Jumanji all the way through (except for blocking his ears during the thunder). He actually requested to watch it again. This is not something he would’ve sat down to watch even a year ago.
How has he grown so much in a year?
Well. How has he grown so much, period?
Of course, looking back at his pictures, the physical growth is minimal (remember, he still wears 4T clothing and some of his shirts at 3T if they don’t show his belly). But you can see the maturity in his face as it thins out and becomes less of a baby face and more of a BOY face.
I joke that I had him on Halloween so that he could continually scare the crap out of me. We’ve been through a lot with him. But the growth? The growth is amazing!
Check out his growth – from birthday to now!
How did my little boy get so big? Furthermore, why is the other one growing SO MUCH faster??
