Friday thoughts

I swore that this time around I would remember the little things. Record things in the baby books, make more home videos, take the time to enjoy the baby stuff! But here I am again, wondering how in the world we fast-forwarded from the the first picture to the next. Where have the last five months gone. They seem like a blur of dr. visits, bottles, and diapers. But there has been more than that....Keaton has gained over 11 pounds and laughs out loud, Claire has smiled and almost rolled over, Kyndall has learned what seems to be every animal on earth and the sound that goes with it! All cool stuff but frankly it makes me a little sad. I looked at my kids today and realized that they will never be this way again. I need to be even more careful about enjoying each day. Jordan mentioned last night as we filled up the Tahoe with all the kids and headed to Bowling Green that one day the kids will all be able to drive themselves. It seems so far off and so close at the same time. So I guess the point of all this is to just remind myself to love all the little things......I need to slow down and be thankful for where I am at during this very moment in time.

Hope you all have a great Friday and take the time to enjoy some of the blessings that God has brought into your life.

It was 8-08-08 today. It might be fun to write down what your babies were all doing on a cool date like that. Just had that idea while I was reading your blog! Love you!
