I drove away teary. I could blame pregnancy hormones for being so sappy. But really, it was more the realization that my little baby is a little boy. It doesn't seem so long ago he was like The Lad, throwing elbows in utero and annoying me with hiccups, and now he's chasing and being chased across a playground.
The Lad will be here in just a little more than a month. I spent tonight unrolling a diaper cake from the shower our friends were kind enough to throw us this weekend. It's hard to believe, looking at The Boy, that those tiny diapers won't be too small. And yet, with The Boy changing in front of me every day, I know just how fast The Lad is going to go from that wee little thing I can't imagine to the sturdy little fellow I can't wait to get to know.
