With the blink of an eye

3 DAYS! 3 DAYS.. in just 3 short days I will have a 3 year old!! I must have lost track of time somehow because it happened all too fast. I remember the moment we met. The moment my whole burst open with some many emotions. The moment I looked at him and realized the baby I was given was not the baby I expected, and the nano second later when I realized it didnt matter because he was mine. My gift. My little piece of heaven on earth. My miracle. In that moment when I realized my life would never be the same. That "normal" would forever be gone, quietly replaced by chaos! I was now a mom of two. Looking back it seems like this time around it went twice as fast!!

I mean how did this little baby:

Become this big boy:

3 years has often felt like only 3 months. In 3 days  my two year old tristan will forever be gone. In 3 days and 1 week that 3 year will start preschool! And in what feels like a blink of an eye its all happening.

A moment frozen in time

Evelyn and her teacher
My sweet little evelyn finished kindergarten this week. It was such a bittersweet experience,I am so proud of her and the little lady that she is becoming. Her teacher recommended her gifted math and reading. On the other hand I wish I could keep her little forever : ). This past year has gone by too fast. Tristan will be two in August, I tend to forget sometimes due to the delays he has like, that he is at the age he is. He has recently within the past month started pulling him self up to a standing position. He has also started saying " Thank you" and he counts to three. Its amazing watching him grow and discover what he can do, and he gets so excited when he learns something new.As a mom you really have to cherish every moment you have with you kids because with a blink the moments are gone.
I definitly enjoy watching them grow up and become these fantasic little people,and look forward to the adventures to come, but at the same time I just wished the days lasted a little longer. Theres moments when you can feel their independence taking place, and them letting go a little more. So I just make sure when Im in the moments to always be thankful, take lots of pictures, and let the hugs last a little longer!
