Lucas is 2 1/2 years old today and they were right. I was warned. Everyone that said it goes by fast. By it, of course, I mean childhood…. mine, yours and especially our children’s.
One minute it was just Todd and I and the next we became a family by bringing home our newborn son. Fast forward in lightening speed time, we began celebrating all of his amazing milestones and he soon turned one and then two and now attends preschool, sleeps in a twin bed, lives on macaroni ‘n cheese and has begun asking us all sorts of inquisitive questions about the world around him.
Right before our eyes Lucas has turned into a little person… a wonderful, thoughtful, strong-willed, energetic little person.
I constantly search for the pause button and desperately try my best to stay present so that I don’t miss a moment of his childhood.
I want to remember these days of sweet innocence and discovery forever.
A hundred hearts would be too few
To carry all my love for you.
