Today’s photo challenge is Fly. Rather than a photo of something flying in the air, I decided to go with a photo that represents time flying, as in “time flies when you are having fun.”
Here in the left picture are the three of us at the beach several years ago with our mouths open and having fun. Then in the right, last Mother’s Day, here we are again. It is amazing how much Ian has grown and changed in that short time.
Rather than a cute baby face, he has stretched out, grown a lot, and turned into a young man, a boy. My baby no longer looks like a baby. He looks like a boy who is in school. That seemed to happen really fast too. And, I was looking at his feet recently. They have grown so much over the years. Such tiny baby feet and now his foot is the size of my hand.
Where did the time go? This fall he will turn 7 years old and start 1st grade. Wow!!! That is just amazing as I can still remember the day we brought him home from the hospital. We have had so many fun times ever since.
We do our best to savor our time together and I plan to continue to do just that.
Happy Birthday to Beckie! Happy Birthday to you!!!
I also want to wish my wonderful sis-in-law Beckie a very Happy Birthday. She is celebrating her birthday today. I hope she has a great one and a wonderful weekend!
Last March I wrote a blog about her and her birthday. I realized that I wanted to say almost the same things to her and about her again as in this link. So I decided to repost that link. Hope you don’t mind Beckie! https://patticates247.wordpress.com/2013/03/07/happy-birthday-beckie/
This is one of my favorite pictures of the two of us. We were enjoying a lobster lunch together for her birthday celebration while at the beach. We’d just had a family portrait taken so we were in similar outfits. What a fun day.
I hope we can do that again sometime! It would be such fun. Love you Beck and hope to see you again very soon.
Have a great Friday and weekend! And don’t forget to spring your clock forward on Saturday night before bed, if you live in an area starting Daylight Saving Time this weekend.
