I was just responding to a message a friend had send me about how quickly the first year goes by for kids. Contemplating my response, I realized that it honestly doesn't seem to slow down. Some days are long but the years just keep slipping by. I still vividly remember the big boys being a year old and toddling around. I have enjoyed every stage so far with the kids but I am in awe of how quickly they keep flying by. As we have more kids, I think that the years keep passing through the stages for each of them even quicker. I think it might just be that you realize the second, third or fourth time through a stage that it is just that, a stage. A stage that will soon be over so you might as well jump into the moment and enjoy because you can't have a do-over. So today, a normal everyday type of day, I realized just how many times my heart melts with little ones around as I just enjoy the moments. I am lucky in that every day, I am able to enjoy little moments that honestly are priceless.
Here are just a few pictures from today that make me smile and make my heart feel just happy to see my little ones.
