When the baby came home... a look back on Ziggy's year-and-a-half-birthday

Yesterday, my little guy turned 18-months-old. I don't usually go in for half-birthday demarcations, but for some reason this milestone made me go all poignant. Probably because Ziggy is possibly my last. But also because regardless of other babies he isn't a baby anymore, and I do like me a baby in the house. On the bright side? He can now play with all the 18-months+ toys! So bring on the celebrations!

It really does seem like just the other day we were coming home from the hospital (without a shred of Disney newborn marketing, my how times have changed).  I remember the day like it was yesterday:






And the conversations:
Magpie: Can we pet the baby now?
Mom: Sure, you can "pet" the baby.

Kay: Uh, Mom?
Mom: Yes, honey?
Kay: Um, why do you still look pregnant?

And Ziggy today?

Just another man on his cell phone running for the train, late for the office again...

How time just flies...
