Easter has come and gone and let me tell you, it was a great one. This year is a year of first for our family. First Easter weekend in our new home and first Easter for our son, Jacob! With all of these first, I cant help but think of how bittersweet it is seeing my little man grow up and grow up way too fast.

Between the middle of the night wake up calls, to the constant changing of diapers, sickness from day care and making bottles,time seems to go by so slow. Blurry eyed, in the middle of the night and tired as heck, it’s easy to forget how precious these moments really are. I keep telling myself to hold him a little tighter, let him sleep on my shoulder a little longer, cherish each second just a little bit more because it really does just fly by like the blink of an eye. My little boy is growing up right in front of me.

I saw a quote that said, “ I constantly go between wanting you to be my baby forever and being excited about all the amazing things you’ll do in this life.” Boy, if this isn’t the truest of the true. Every day I wonder, what it will be like when my little boy starts talking? What will his personality be like? Who will he grow up to be? If he is anything like his daddy, he will be a social butterfly who can start a conversation with anyone.

All I know right now is that I want to really take in theses moments…the little smiles, giggles, bath times, 6 am wake up calls, and the snuggles. I know it doesn’t last forever. As with anything in life, time flies when you’re having fun.

Here are some photos from our Easter weekend, 2016:

I mean, REALLY?! I know I am biased but he really is just too cute for words. We had photos taken by an awesome photographer on Saturday. Check out Heather Creed Photography.

Jacob got to spend precious time with his Grammy and his Papa Tom, who visited us from South Carolina. He loved every second of it!

Jacob is his daddy’s mini me. I love seeing them side by side. We are so lucky to have Brian.

Family Time

I didn’t get to decorate AS much as I would have liked for Easter, but I did put up a few things. I keep telling Brian, ” Just wait till Christmas, it’s going to look like the North Pole up in here.”
