It is so wonderful to get to be a parent and watch the little ones grow. Having three kids under six years is a daily reminder of how fast they develop. There really isn’t that much time between the three year old and the 5 year old, and it seems like just yesterday when the five year old was only two months old. As they get older they are starting to develop their own little lives with their friends as their circles expand past the one we as parents offer them. Things like Eli and Isabel going out to dinner with their friends families, or maybe the neighbor kid showing up at the house before they get out of bed, or Eil having a friend over for a his first sleepover; each monumental little steps as they develop their own sense of purpose and individuality. I sit back in awe and try to remember to do my best to soak it in because soon it will be a distant picture or a memory that seems like a blog post from so long ago.
