pudgy cabbage patch hands

we may have a problem this winter on our hands...
have mercy.
tonight when i was singing to brennan before bed,
i all of a sudden got scared.
panic in my heart kind of scared.
i quickly grabbed his hand and my eyes raced to his knuckles.
his little cabbage patch dimples are still there.
i will cry the day they are gone.
and i vowed to myself right there by the side of his little toddler bed that i will look at them every night until they finally disappear.
i love those little pudgy cabbage patch hands of his.
"i'll love you forever...
my baby you'll be."

I know what you're going through! I'm glad Tyler still has a little chub left, but I remember when his smile was all cheeks and chins and now it's all teeth.

It's so funny when they suddenly become all bones and angles.

Yes don't blink. Lucas scares e with how much more of a boy he is becoming everyday. His dimple hands are long gone

That is such a sad thought! I dread the day when he no longer wants to cuddle! And those chubby cheeks perfect for kissing? What a sad day it will be indeed!

I sing that song to my kids every night before bed. I even added a spanish verse. Basically it is the same thing, just translated. The kids sing along with me. I will be missing that as well.
