Birthday

Right at this moment, I am staring out the dining room window, sipping coffee, jamming to JT's new album (because according to my husband, that's evidently just "how we roll") and watching my two year old chase his dog around the house. Mornings should start out like this more often and days should be more like yesterday. It was a good day.


Benjamin is officially two years old. Can you believe it? I can't. I remember March 29th, 2011, like it was truly yesterday and here I am reflecting about that day two entire years later. We celebrated in small ways yesterday. A "birthday boy" t shirt, a breakfast date with friends, a lunch picnic in our freshly mowed backyard and frozen yogurt for an after El Sombrero treat.


I don't know if I'm ready to tell people I have a two year old. Maybe I'm having some growing pains and realizing that my grandmother was right when she warned me that time doesn't wait for anybody. We've learned a lot about that over the last two years. Life is short. It's going to whiz by whether you're holding on or not. Micah and I have both had moments of "I may not make it home." Moments like that happen to a lot of people and you can do one of two things: Panic or Change. If you choose to panic, you'll miss out on life. You just will. If you choose to change, you best get your boots on and hold on tight. (I'm in Texas now; I can talk about boots.)


My point is, I know my babies will grow up quick. I just want to look back twenty years from now and feel like I didn't miss it.

It's a good day. Do something about it.

  1. The birth of your amazing little guy is an event that changed me (us) in a way that only God and a little something extra could do! And I am grateful that God allowed us to be with you as you welcomed your little bundle. Wish we could celebrate all the milestones and birthdays with you and yours, but so grateful for the times we've had and the ones to come! Love you, my dear!

  2. I just randomly found your blog tonight and your sons smile made me smile and cry all at once. He is so precious and full of joy. I have a 16 month old so I just love those little boys! The name of your blog caught my eye because I'm doing a 40 day gossip fast on my blog and that's what my mom used to say to me. Feel free to check it out sometime!
