It’s so lame to start all of our family posts like this but SERIOUSLY, where does the time go? I think about being 30 and I feel like my life has flown by so far. I can’t imagine how my parents feel when they look at me and remember my birth or me being small and here I am… 30! And although Charlotte has only been on this planet for 3 years it’s gone by so fast!! I remember her being born and now she carries on conversations with us and has her own little opinions! Anyway, all I’m trying to say to myself and to you is to soak it all up. This time we have goes by so quickly and everything is constantly changing. I’m trying desperately to be in the moment with my kids. To snuggle Riley as much as I can before those horrible days come when my kids are embarrassed to be be seen with me. To listen intently to Charlotte and jot down the cute things she says so that I never can forget them. Ahhhh, being a parent is such a mix of blessing and struggle but I wouldn’t trade it for a thing and Matt and I are so blessed to have people walking this journey with us.
