What happened to my baby?

Oh man, when did he grow up?!

We were hanging out in the garden the other day – literally, hanging out in the hammock, and I just had a moment realizing that this little boy is starting to turn into a big boy (scary, right?  All that responsibility that hits you even harder, when you think how much his future sense of self depends on what we put in now).

I often find myself staring at his face trying to imaging what he’ll look like when he is 15 (again, scary!  Facial hair and all that stuff – I just have to shut it off for now)  🙂  Makes me pick up the camera though and seize the moment while he is happy to pose.
Sam is a treasure.  He is my challenge and my joy.  And when he feels content and happy my heart is overwhelmed!
