proof

I have to admit, I've been having some denial.

Till now, I've refused to acknowledge that our firstborn is growing up, right before our eyes. Sort of the "I don't feel older, how can HE be older" thing.

He and I spent a portion of Saturday working on an assignment for his Communication Arts class. That's English class for you old-timers. He was to compose a picture timeline of his life, from birth to present day.

He enjoyed going through the pictures and I enjoyed the little trip down memory lane.

Please allow me to share some of my favorites with you.....

This is the first day that we brought him home.


He loves spaghetti. One of us was always on kitchen clean-up and one on kid clean-up afterwards. (taken just after his first birthday)


Here he is on his second birthday.


He is more than ready for Kindergarten, just 2 days before he turned 6!


By Christmas 2005, he's already NINE years old!


And here he is, starting 5th grade....


And then just 2 months ago, as he was looking forward to starting 7th grade and becoming a TEENAGER!


Needless to say, but you know me, I will anyway.....this project was humbling for me. Whether I admit it or not, he's growing up. It's exciting and scary at the same time, but I'm ready for whatever the future brings!

I hope.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY, FRIEND!

That was a fun timeline--I do agree, kids grow too fast. But it's fun to be along for the ride!
