Watching Otto grow up more and more each day can be a bittersweet pill, for sure. I wish I had the power to freeze time just about every day. For Loretta too. This little lady is army crawling her way around town, sitting up, eating with so much gusto it's kind of funny. It seriously amazes me how quickly they learn new things, grow, change. It's awesome and amazing and I love it and I hate it, because stop it! Stop it already babies! Slow your rolls anyways. Sheesh.

One thing I'm loving so much about this nearly-4-years old (what?!) stage with Otto is that we are legitimately playing board games. Like he beats me at Uno ALL THE TIME and plays Candy Land and Chutes & Ladders and Crazy 8s with mad skillz. It's awesome. This is a boardgame'a'playin family so it's pretty thrilling to know the kid got that competitive thinker gene. Loretta likes to eat the cards ;)

I wish I could hold onto every day forever. Thank goodness for this blog. I find myself going back to older posts more and more and reliving some of the happiest little moments. Boggling at how quickly they've grown. Cooing at pictures of them as teenier versions of themselves. This really is my baby book. It may not have all the weights and measures, but it has all the things that have made raising these two amazing people so special.

Ok, now go look at a newborn giraffe (you know you can't stop either!) http://www.earthcam.com/usa/southcarolina/greenville/
