Spending time with the C. Family (H, M, big brother J & baby sister A) reminded me how quickly our babies grow up. I don't typically get weepy about these things when it comes to my kids ~ in fact I'm usually the opposite. I love each new stage. I love all the milestones. And I celebrate inside when they seem to grow before my eyes. But something about watching the C kids play made me miss those wonderful ages. I forgot how much I love when 3-year-old boys stop cold in their tracks to watch a truck roar past. I forgot how much I love when an 18-month-old enthusiastically repeats words. I forgot about the chubby cheeks on a toddler...oh my heart, the glorious chubby cheeks! And most of all, I forgot how much I love seeing the height/size difference between small children and their parents....just how little they look when they're in the arms or hanging onto the legs of a mom or dad. It just melts my heart. Those ages...those stages...they truly are gone in the blink of an eye. What a wonderful time in the life of this sweet family.
C's: Enjoy your sneak peek! Thank you for the fun afternoon!! :)
