Terrific Tuesday

Terrific Tuesday

Since I missed Marvelous In My Monday this week (it was a bit of a crazy Monday) I’m just going to create Terrific Tuesday instead!  So, as usual, this is my Terrific Tuesday…

photo 2 (27) photo 3 (21)My goodness I love these babies and they are growing SO fast!!  My Mia is 7 weeks old today and I have already had to pack her newborn outfits and put them away (she’s too long!) and my Rylnn is 3 1/2 going on 12 as I watch him grasping more and more concepts and ideas that I would’ve never dreamed possible at his age.

After watching a video recently (It Starts At Home) Gary Thomas mentioned that this time or period in a young parent’s life is made up of “long days, short years.”  While this may be some deep philosophical saying that’s been around for years, I’ve never heard it before, but it sure hit home to me as absolute truth.  I am so tired at the end of most days, it’s all I can do to scrape out a mile on the treadmill or a quick circuit workout before I shower and fall into bed, but then I wake up one morning and realize how tall my baby boy is (When did that happen?) or that my baby girl has already been smiling for weeks (Are you kidding me, I just had her!).  Long days, short years…I am learning that it’s hard and it’s exhausting, but I’m trying to cherish each and every moment I have during each phase of their lives :)
