Slipping away

Quint and I spent a while looking at old pictures today.  Old as in, when he was a baby.  Two and a half years have flown by (and taken their sweet time, hello terrible 2’s…) 

He sat on my lap and we talked about each picture, what he was doing at that time, and how old he was.  We even came across pictures from his first Christmas with us.  And while he was ooh-ing and aww-ing at himself, and completely distracted by the pictures of him opening presents – I was feeling a little misty.  I was moved with nostalgia.

He has changed so much from that little guy…

My oh my…that little man of mine…

And two years from now, I’ll be looking at these pictures and wondering where the time went…and how much he has changed from this little guy to the way he will be then.

I’m going to really miss these early years…so fleeting and fast.  They are precious few and short.

Enjoy every stage! Even the teenage years are fun!!! Can't believe I send my oldest off to college in 3 semesters! :)

I read somewhere the other day "the days are long but the years are short" and that is so true when you are a mommy!

You will miss the little guy Quint is now, but you'll also enjoy the bigger kid he'll be who can go and see and do and talk about more things with you.

Merry Christmas! xoxo
