Summer is almost over and Roman’s birthday is drawing near. I’ve got mixed feelings about this! On one hand, I’m happy to be celebrating that big day with my boy. On the other hand, I’m emotional that my first born is almost a two-year old! How does this happen so fast? One day they are drooling, babbling babies and the next you’re planning for their second birthday. It’s bittersweet, really. He’s been quite the big kid these days, helping me around the house with his brother and doing more on his own each day. This toddler independence is pretty sweet and I’m thankful I get to share in these special moments of childhood. But why must they grow up so fast? I’m reminding myself to hold on tighter to these days, they will be gone before I know it. Oh summer, won’t you stay a little longer?
