Hold me.

My child is a toddler.  I get that.  I mean, generally after a baby turns one, they're considered a toddler.  Also, the fact that she's almost walking classifies her as a toddler.  I'm not in denial.  

But last week, she was moved up to the toddler class at daycare.  That means new teachers, bigger babies, and a new- strict- schedule.  I'd sorta been dreading it, because it means my little girl is growing up.

After picking her up from her new classroom, I was buckling her in her carseat.  A little teary eyed -there was dust in the air, I wasn't emotional at all- I asked my little girl, "Did my little baby turn into a big girl?!"

She thought for a minute, then looked me in the eye, and said "no!"

Oh thank goodness...

Here are a few recent pictures of my baby, who is not a big girl:

Just on a walk with Nana & Pops.

Playing with the big kids on the bounce house.

Oh, as if you don't put your toddler in a box to contain her.
Yep, just a little bitty baby.

Hold me.

Problem is mine would climb out of the box. :)

All babies are cute, but Skeeter is just so expressive! I love all the pictures of her.

Awww! She's still such a little one, I say she's still a baby.

That said, I call my friend's 2 and a half year old son a baby, so what do I know? :)

I love that you put her in a box! I used to do that to my niece and nephew!

Right there with ya. I can't call Charlotte a toddler. I CAN'T. She's not walking yet (though she HAS taken steps!), so I feel justified in calling my non-toddling 1 year old a baby.

Too bad we don't live nearby. We could hold each other. Ha!

Good grief, she's pure sweetness! We are in the process of moving and I definitely contained Luke in a box. Throw some measuring cups in there and some packing bubbles = entertainment for at least thirty minutes!

This whole toddler thing is just killing me!! She still feels like my little baby until I see old pictures...wahh!! I'm right there with you, mama.

Love Skeeter in a box! :)

I can't believe she's so grown up! I mean, how small and not grown up at all she is...

Oh, I love that she told you no. So sweet! Seriously though, I need to meet that baby before she goes to prom.
