This has been a big weekend for us. I'm not usually one to get teary-eyed over milestones, but I confess I've been close to tears several times the past couple of days as it seems Benjamin is becoming such a little boy and is no longer my little baby. First off, he told me on Saturday that he needed to use the potty. Unfortunately I was unprepared and had not yet purchased a potty seat for our toilet, so he was too scared to actually use the big potty, but it was a milestone none the less. And the second milestone was that Benjamin moved to a toddler bed last night. It's really not a huge change. It's still a crib, just with one side removed, but for some reason he just looked so big getting into his bed by himself and acting like it was no big deal. He stayed in it all night did really well. And when he woke up this morning it seemed like he was talking even more clearly than before and acting so grown up. So this morning as I sat outside and looked at the toys all over the yard and listened to Benjamin making truck noises as he drove his truck up my leg, I was struck once again with how quickly life changes. Two years ago I didn't even know if God would ever allow me to be a mom, and today I'm thanking God for giving me the incredible privilege of being Benjamin's mommy. Life with a toddler is definitely crazy, but I wouldn't trade it for anything in the world!
