Walmart list

So today marked a milestone event in my walmart list. For the last 2 1/2 years every time I go to Walmart for big grocery buying, I go to the baby section. 2 years ago it was to get formula...diapers..pacis...gas name it we got it...lately its been just I went there out of habit and looked around and realized I didn't need anything from that section anymore. How strange it felt. How nice my wallet sad my heart felt. We wish those times away and then when they arrive we stand in a walmart section wondering where our "baby" went. I cannot remember the last can of formula I bought only that I waited for the day thinking it would be such a happy day because we would be saving money & now I pass the formula and miss those late night bottles and sweet baby sounds as he took it. He will no longer need diapers. The potty training is going great. We still use pull ups for night time...but I will no longer be buying those big pampers is so weird. I know you hear people say it all the time...but it really does go by in the blink of an eye. One day they will stop spitting up & you won't have to "shout" everything they wear. One day they will give up the bottle and you no longer rock them to sleep as they drink. One day they tee-tee in the potty and the next they are wearing big boy underwear. I look forward to all the big boy things we get to do now...but I also miss those little baby days.
I don't know if God's plan will allow us to have another baby...I hope so...but if not..I have sure cherished these days and these milestones.
If you have a little one...don't wish it'll be over and you'll miss it...even buying the diapers.
