since when?

since when does my little toddler not look much like a toddler anymore? since when does riley know all about white meat and women's under garments? it's all happening so fast!

last week while i was getting dressed. riley walked right up to me and inspected the bra i was putting on.

ri: mom i like the dots on your overalls, they're so cute.

i just want to make it clear that it wasn't overalls she was talking about. i don't wear overalls.


on v-day when i was gone ALL day ian took the girls out from some fine dinning at wendy's.

ian: riley what do you want to eat?
ri: um i want chicken mcnuggets with all white meat.

i wonder sometimes if i really am going to miss cleaning off this little face every time i turn around, especially when my hands are cracked and bleeding from washing so many little fingers and cheeks all day every day.

even if i'm not loving all of the messy body parts i am completely head over heals in love with her brown eyes, the perfect shape, the perfect shade, with so much expression, i'm constantly sucked into staring at them.

it's been 18 months but i still can't believe my boy and i ended up with a small, blond haired, brown eyed baby, not so baby anymore.
