Time has flown, and we've had fun!

This year, Pickle will be 4...F-O-U-R...FOUR!!! As you can tell, I'm just a teensy weensy tiny little bit shocked at this news. Seriously, I can't believe it. Honestly, it only feels like yesterday, I was nick-naming the little baby in my belly, and only this morning that I fell in love with his little face. How on EARTH is it possible that it's been 4 whole years?!?! 

I am still in love with his face, but it's not so little anymore, and HE'S not so little anymore...he's a full-fledged BOY. Running away from me every chance he gets, tackling his sister and making her cry, kissing her and soothing her when she is sad, conspiring with her to do something "forbidden", eating like he's never going to see food again, then refusing to eat the same foods he couldn't get enough of the day before. The list goes on, but really, you get the point...he is ALL BOY, and I am so proud of my little boy. 

I remember taking him to see The Wiggles LIVE when they came to San Diego in April of 2008.  He was so entranced by the show, and I spent most of the show in utter amazement of HIM. Don't get me wrong, I saw the show too, but I spent a large part watching his face light up, and watching the display of his emotions, as he watched the show, then, the disappointment as the show ended, and he watched the performers leave the stage, and NOT return!  The performance was great, and we enjoyed all of the dancing and singing, and watching The Wiggles drive around in their Big Red Car!  To be honest, I was sad to see the evening come to an end, as well.  It was our first "date" night since Rayna had been born, and it was such a great bonding moment for us.  

Even now, we still make time to do "date" nights, just Ryan and Mommy.  As a matter of fact, our next night out is well over-due.  I've been looking forward to taking him for lunch, then a movie, followed by an extra special trip to get some yummy frozen yogurt to bring home and share with Daddy and Rayna!

It's so sad how fast they grow. Time is flying by isn't it. He's such a sweet boy. I'm so glad you are able to have date nights with him.
