I haven’t posted about MINE in a while and as I looked back through my favorites from the fall/winter I was struck by just how grown up they are getting. It seems like just a blink in time…how can they be this big already? This is going way to fast. Waahh…sniff, sniff 😥
In all honesty, every age has been wonderful and I love this age too! Their personalities are blossoming – they are so funny and interested in so many different things. My favorite times are when we sit and talk forever about anything and everything and nothing at all…or get to laughing so hard we can’t speak and our cheeks hurt. These are good days.
And, no, my kids do not normally walk down paths holding hands. They only did it to satisfy me (and because they were starving). Yes, I did threaten to stay there as long as it took…even if that meant they never ate again. But, something about holding hands made them laugh and that was well worth stooping to threats to achieve. And, yes, my son’s shoe laces are lime green…you have to pick your battles 🙂
And just to prove my point about how fast this whole “growing up” thing is happening, just look at this:
And, that just wasn’t that long ago….again, with the “sniff, sniff”.
Here is one in front of our tree this year.
We are truly blessed ♥
