Do you ever just look at your children and wish you could freeze time? Just keep them as little as they are and never let them grow older?
Everyone always says to appreciate the time you have with your children because they grow up in the blink of an eye. Well I am appreciating the time with my children and I am here to say that they are still growing up – in the blink of an eye! I can’t believe I have a 6 year old, an almost 2.5 year old (didn’t we just celebrate Emily’s 2nd birthday like yesterday?!), and now another baby coming in a couple months.
Last night, we were all in the living room. The tv was on – Nate was watching some discovery channel show about electricity or some other over-my-head subject. Nathan was watching/playing with his new tornado-in-a-bottle toy that we had gave him for his birthday and just yesterday finally bought batteries for (poor kid had to wait a week to use it!) And I was getting Emily dressed for bed after her bath. As I sat there with my happy family, I realized once again just how blessed I am. And that these really are the best days of my life. I wanted to just freeze that moment in time and stay there always. I am so blessed and I am so thankful for my amazing husband and my two beautiful incredible children with soon to be one more!
