Just Pause.

February 3, 2012

Lately I have been feeling so thankful for our little guy. He has just been such a delight to be around & I have many moments throughout the day where I just pause & take a mental snapshot to try to remember him just as he is… right. this. second. I remember Susie telling me around when Ollie was 3 months old that she really enjoyed when Caden was 3-4 months and also when he was 7-8 months old. Oddly enough, I’ve found that to be exactly the case with Ollie as well.

I’m already thinking about what to do for his first birthday party… it’s less than five months away. Can you believe how fast time has gone? The other day we were all sitting at the table eating dinner together — feeding him his dinner of purees in between bites of my own dinner. While he squeezed Sophie & threw her off the table again, and again, and again. I remember when he couldn’t even grab Sophie with his hands. He couldn’t sit up in a chair. All he did was sleep all day long. How in the world did he grow up so fast??

The days are long but the years are short — trying to savor the golden moments of every day.
