A week of firsts …

Whoever said, “Mommy’s aren’t allowed to get sick” didn’t ever have the virus that just went through our house.  Anyway, I missed you blogland! We have now recovered and I am back in action.

And N, our brave and dear five year old learned to ride her bike without training wheels. Only a few spills, but she took to the feeling very quickly. She zoomed past me and said, “Mommy … can you believe it?”

Mommy thought :: please stay young a little longer.

My sweet three year old learned to pump his legs while swinging. It sort of made me cry when I heard him say, “Mommy … this feels amazing!”

Mommy thought :: please don’t grow up too fast.

And lastly, our six-month old son of smiles is able to sit up completely unassisted. He smiles with such pride and achievement as if to say, “Mommy … I’m such a big boy.”

Mommy thought :: I don’t want to blink.

Thank you Lord for my dear children. Please help me treasure and cherish every moment with our dear ones.

    I love this post… I know how you feel all too well! I watched Gav go out to the pitcher mound walking so confident and tall. All of a sudden it hit me that he is not really a “little boy” anymore ~ it made me really sad! I am so proud micah can PUMP, we are still working on that at our house. :)

    I’m a mom of 4 daughters, almost grown. Your post brought back memories of their growing up years, because after all, it really wasn’t that long ago. Just a word of encouragement to you – many people told me to cherish the moments when they were young because they grow up so fast. And yes, this is very true.
    However, the middle school years, teenage years and now I’m beginning the adult years, are all very good and so much a blessing as well. I’ve even acquired a son as my eldest is now married – so many fun times together! There are many good moments in all these stages. So just wanted to give you something to look forward to as I’m looking forward to the years of cuddling babies again in the years to come as a grandma.

      Thank you so much for your encouragement. I love that you enjoy your grown children so much. It is hard to imagine my life 15 years from now, but I pray that I too will have a similar story as you. your words were touching. Thanks again.
