They're awesome. Forget Folger's, the best way to wake up is to have a 3 year little guy snuggled up against you. My son wakes me up every morning by climbing into bed with me. Not DH, he wants Mom. DD, OTOH, plunks herself between DH and me.
But they grow. And oh, so quickly. I'm looking at a picture on our wall...I'm holding DD who is about 2 months old. And now, she is lean and tall and entering second grade shortly. She has grown another inch...49 inches and 49 pounds at the peds office last week.
And DS is now in pre-school. I can't believe it. Babyhood is in the rear view mirror, never to return.
Egads, I'm getting old. :)
