{loved you from the start}

When we had our little cupcake party with neighbors I made a slide show of the 3 birthday boys. I have so much love in my heart for these children. They are growing & learning & becoming so much of who we hope them to be. Looking at the old pictures of Tre are particularly HARD! He is growing so fast. I am afraid to let time slip past us. I want him in arms reach always. 

(some fun tunes on this. tear jerkers for mommas.)

Somedays can be so incredibly loud and crazy. & I get crazy myself. I feel like an absolute crazy woman when I am trying to get dinner/baths/homework done all at the same time. I forget to smile sometimes. I forget to brush my fingers through their blonde hair as i pass by them to sharpen a pencil or turn on the oven.  I forget to remember that this season of my life is fleeting. Its short. Much too short.  
I think because Cooper looks so much like Tre, its such a stark reminder that the children grow up so quickly. Tre used to be 1 and smiley & warm in my arms. How did almost 9 years race past me? 9 years left till he leaves for his mission. 9 years left to tuck him in, to check on him at night, to send him off to school with a prayer, to make his breakfast, to pack his lunches... My heart aches for Baby Tre. Motherhood can be very hard on the heart in that way.

This is a great reminder to me to enjoy today. I'm stuck in a grumbling rut lately, full of lost shoes and messes... I need to do better at remembering to enjoy it all. Thanks, once again, for your amazing example.
