This morning when I was greeting the kids as they got here, I was startled to see a new little boy in my midst (especially so, since I didn't know of any new kids coming to daycare).
After further inspection (that, and I recognized his mommy) I realized the little boy before me was Shmook.
He is officially NOT a baby anymore.
Little man started daycare as The Drooler. Although his personality is much the same (VERY observant, the kid doesn't miss a beat), he is no longer the little helpless baby he was 6 months ago.
