|Around 12 hours old...|
It's hard to believe that this much time has past. He's far from my baby anymore. He still loves to give hugs, but I rarely get snuggles anymore. He's too busy and on the go - and that's something to cherish in a different way - but I can't say I don't miss my baby boy. It really seems like yesterday that we were snuggling for the first time, he was asleep for the first time on my chest and I was staring at him in awe. Gone are those days, but the memories are cemented.
So on the eve of his third birthday - Ace's 36th month of life - when this mommy ceases to count in months, I just am happy to take a moment to relish in this time and in this upcoming year ahead. What will year four bring us? Only time will tell, but if it's anything like the last three years it's certain to be a joyous ride. Happy Birthday Eve, Bear!
