Tick Tock

Tick Tock...the hands on the clock are moving fast, twisting round in circles, rapidly without ceasing they move round and round and round. The sun rises and lies back down....a rhythm that seems slow until i see pictures. I saw a baby picture yesterday ....did i hug him enough...did i hold him enough?....he's so big now. i want to reach for time, catch it in my hands and make it mine, make it rewind and hold him longer.
Tick Tock ....the clock doesnt stop....



Bennett tried on my rain shoes...all by himself...
Bennett has officially given up pacifier except for naps and night time...and now sleeps in a BIG BOY bed......im so proud of him...but part of my heart is sad to see the baby leave and the toddler take over. I would never go back....he is SO cute...growing so beautifully, but its a bittersweet thing. i know you mama's out there understand.

Ok, 2 things:
1. I LOVE it that you have rain boots. I haven't had any since I was like 5 but your are awesome.
2. The reason that you miss you baby bennett is because you need to have another Mann!The world needs more of y'alls genes!
