They grow up so fast!

Since Caleb was born we have had more than a handful of people say to us… “Enjoy every minute because they grow up so fast!” And while we understand what they are saying, it has become a bit annoying too. I guess because the decision to have children was never something we felt we had to do, but instead a conscious decision—the comment assumes that we would get caught up in the details of having a baby and not be able to enjoy the moment…and we are really careful NOT to do that. Although having a baby has changed a lot of how we live…and totally changed how we look at life, we treasure every moment, every new thing he does, every new sound he makes, and every new face he makes. So it has become an inside joke between Craig and me, whenever Caleb executes a new skill and seems to advance into a new stage, we look at each other with raised eyebrows, a smirk, and say, “They grow up so fast!”
