April is the birthday month for my babies. Not only are they three years apart, but two were born on the same day (my stepson and daughter, Simone) and Grant was born 5 days later. With all the hustle and bustle of the month, I had to make myself stop and reflect upon these Birthday milestones.
Five is a major milestone. Simone is no longer a toddler. Where did the time go?! I love how independent she is now and how she’s able to digest and use new information so quickly. Her vocabulary, in both English and Spanish, is expanding daily. I can’t believe some of the words she utters, and even more so, that she uses those words in the right context. We have such in-depth conversations now. Huge difference between 4 and 5 for this young lady. I love how her personality is developing. She is truly blossoming, just like all the April flowers.
Grant is reallllly a toddler now. Okay okay, he became a toddler at 1, but in my mind, he was still a baby up until, yep this morning. Where did my baby go? Sniff Sniff. And my big boy is such an alpha male!!! He walks into a room and commands attention, without saying a word. His inquisitive nature tickles me. I can’t wait to see what’s in store for my little man.
