When did that happen?

When did my sweet baby boy get big enough to almost fill the entire length of my bed? It seems like he was just a sweet pudgy toddler -- and now he is a BOY! A boy who likes to cuddle at night but is losing interest in any daytime affection. A boy with a generous amount of hair across his upper lip that will one day turn into a MUSTACHE! (Ok that might be a few years off but he is part Italian so it could be by second grade.) It scares me this passing of time. Time, which used to pass normally, seems to go into hyper speed when children arrive. I see it more in J than M though I know one day I will be lamenting over her too.

Killer sharks and stingrays ... Beware!

I realize that the ocean belongs to the critters that inhabit it. We humans are the ones invading their domain. But when I am swimming in the ocean, I like to pretend there is nothing swimming alongside me.

And then I saw this ... (don't let his small stature fool you, he could rip off a pinky or baby toe) ...

And he brought along his sidekick Stan the Stingray ...

We spent the better part of two weeks traveling -- once for business to Michigan and then to Myrtle Beach for fun. I love the beach and the ocean. There's something magical about it. What I don't love is coming home after the beach. Too much to do before we hit the road again next week (another business trip -- we need to find a new house in Michigan ASAP).
