Life on Fast Forward

Let us play a little game of catch up...

On June 1 this year we welcomed another little boy in to our family. He checked in at 9lbs, our biggest baby, with a head of strawberry blond fuzz, another surprise after his size. His two older brothers completely adore him, even now, just one day shy of 12 weeks later. He has been such a joy; an easy baby who sleeps *better* (but still not great) than either of his two brothers, and just fits in to the routine like he was always a part of it. Everyone says the third baby just has to do that, and they are right. And I will say that the transition from one to two kids was far more difficult than the transition from two to three. I don't know why but it just is.

Life was a bit of a blur this summer, obviously. My ChatterBug started first grade this week, Bear starts his last year of preschool next Monday (sniff!), and I know that in just a few blinks of an eye we'll be closing out the year with a 7 month old, a 5 year old and a 7 year old. This is crazy, crazy talk.

I don't feel old. But every time I look up and reflect out, everything around me is changing and growing up, and that means I am too. Of course, the grey hairs don't help the denial either. But let's not go there just yet. I don't want to live life on fast forward. Maybe I need to look up more often so I'm not so surprised by the seemingly sudden changes? I don't know. But for now I just want to enjoy these beautiful, amazing children Hubs and I made.
