Years ago, while shopping I remember older moms greeting me; wanting to peek at the new baby in the carrier and to remember back to the same season when they had little ones.
Every conversation always seemed to end in the same way: "Enjoy it, they grow up too fast!" they would say. To which I would always reply, "I am!" with a smile. But often, as I would walk away I was also thinking, "Really? The time seems to be dragging! I can't wait to talk through things with this little one; play games; read books."
Our first little baby turned 12 this month.
We are still enjoying it.
Only difference: we understand exactly what those older moms were saying.
1. Hailey just turned one!
2. Lydia slightly off Maker's Diet for the celebration of Faith's 12th birthday. :)
3. Tom waiting in line for the bumper cars with his daughters that fulfilled the height requirement.
4. Hooray for Marine World!
