Happy Birthday to me!

Sydney turns 3 & Sean rolls over


Big day around felt like my life moved in fast forward all in one day.  My little girl is growing up - even now as I type this blog she is putting on lip gloss that she got for her birthday!  Sean decided today that he would roll over both ways and start moving forward.  Life is so fast...I want to freeze it - right now...this day...just let them stay like this.  It was a good day - one of the best days I have had in quite sometime.  Raising these kids is so rewarding - everyday is an adventure and some days, I don't want to repeat.   But today, I would repeat a hundred times to see the smiles and laughter of both of my kids experiencing something for the first time. Life does come full circle.  The last few months, I don't want to live over again and then I have a day like today...

"Family life is full of major and minor crises -- the ups and downs of health, success and failure in career, marriage, and divorce -- and all kinds of characters. It is tied to places and events and histories. With all of these felt details, life etches itself into memory and personality. It's difficult to imagine anything more nourishing to the soul." - Thomas Moore
