8 IS GREAT!

Today my oldest is 8.
Crap, he's 8!
Well, around 43oish he'll officially be 8!
4:23 I think. Have to double check on the time, but it was around 4 that they delivered him by c-section and quickly placed him on my chest.

Wow!
8!
I woke up seeing him voting, dating, HS, college, driving, drinking, and he's only just 8!
It's not because I am wishing the time away, it's more that time is doing that for me.
Moving along, no matter how many wishes to hold it back.
It just keeps moving.

He's happy and that's good.
He's a wonderful boy with a terrific mind-an engineering mind-so he- G-d Willing, will go far.

It's just hard to believe that in 2 years we'll have a son in double digits! We really need to start saving for his Bar Mitzvah!

Now, if you'll excuse me, I have some Lego gifts to wrap!

Enjoy your little ones while you can because time doesn't stop.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY LIL MAN! I'll NEVER FORGET THAT FIRST MOMENT WE SAW YOU!

Happy Belated Birthday to Jackson.
They sure do grow fast.
Grandkids grow even faster!!
My oldest is already 18 and it seems just like yesterday I turned into a grandma. :-)

Happy Late Birthday!!

My oldest just turned 13 and my youngest turned 9. It hurts in a way to see them getting older and yet it is wonderful to see them growing up.

It doesn't slow down, but they're always a blessing no matter what age.
