How Can It Be?

 [CAUTION: POST ABOUT CHILDREN AHEAD]

Yesterday I reserved the site and ordered the invitations for my sons' third birthday party.  (The party will be at a local railroad park that they love, and there will be not just one, but TWO bounce houses.  Probably more than we need, but I got a deal.)

How can it be that, in only two short months, the boys will be THREE YEARS OLD?

This time three years ago, I was moaning about how miserable my pregnancy had been (that post is here).  I recall feeling great mentally and emotionally--thrilled to "finally" be pregnant and to have avoided complications thus far--and feeling simply awful physically.

It's true what they say about having children: the days are long, but the years are short.

Just because I haven't shared photos of my sons here in a while. . . here are a few recent shots of them from our trip to the pumpkin patch last month.

  1. I hear you.

    In 3 weeks, my twins turn 7. SEVEN. It's insane. How are they that old? How am *I* that old? Where did all those years go?

    The party sounds awesome though!

  3. Gorgeous boys - it's funny, their smiles remind me of my son's - something about the shape they make with their mouths. That saying about having children is spot on!
