nearing 4 months old!

We can't believe our baby is almost 4 months old. It doesn't sound that old, but we are seeing changes in him that remind us that he won't be small forever. Thinking about it brings tears to mama's eyes! He had his first giggle yesterday after hearing the words, "scratch scratch". When on the changing table, he likes to play with his toes now. He's babbling (or spitting while making noise?) more than ever. He'll batting the ball before we know it!

Here's the growing Nickel family. Count 'em: 15 of us!

Happy Mother's Day all you mamas! Now I see how wonderful being a mom is. I wouldn't trade it for the world!
