Five Years Ago

Five years ago I officially became a mommy. Cole was definitely an answer to prayers and has added joy to our life ever since. He is definitely the right kid to pave the way for his other siblings. He leads, he teaches, he encourages, he takes care of AND of course he bosses, he manipulates, he takes advantage of his oldest status.

He amazes me every day. He makes me laugh every day. He makes me cry some days. He makes me tired most days. Occasionally he even has me questioning my sanity. After five years of days like these, I ask myself the cliche question, "Where has the time gone?" and then the terrifying thought comes, "How fast is the rest of the time going to go?"

So for today I will look at him and see the big boy he is and remember the tiny one he used to be. I will imagine him getting even smarter, even handsomer, even saucier, even more spiritual BUT I will try to live in the moment and be grateful for my now 5 Year Old.



HAPPY BIRTHDAY COLE! We love you!
