Where Did the Time Go?

I have been really bad at taking pictures lately, and I want to get back into the habit of taking a lot of pictures again. At one point of last year, I made sure I took the camera out at least once a day, but I kinda got out of that habit and I want to try and do better.

Anyway, the other day Dustin and Thomas were playing on our bed, and I thought it would be a great opportunity to take some pictures, and while I was looking through them I couldn't help but remember the pictures I took almost 2 years ago and how similar they were. And now comparing them, I can't believe how young Thomas was, and wondering where has the time gone?
It's going so fast, and I feel every year is getting faster faster, and I hear each child goes faster, so I really need to remember that I need to appreciate everyday because before I know it, I will be an empty nester! Too many times I wish for something ahead, for example, the last few weeks I've kept saying how I want this baby to get here, but the last few days I have been thinking to enjoy this moment right now. This will be the last few days/weeks that I have with just Thomas, where I can spend most if not all my attention to him, and that's going to change soon, and I will never have that again. I always call him my buddy, but soon I will have 2 buddies, which I'm very excited about, but till now I just want to enjoy this time and not try to rush through my life. 

So here is Thomas at 4 months.

And here is Thomas at 2!

Aww! Those are such cute pictures! Thomas is so grown up. It's crazy how time flies, it makes me kind of sad. Enjoy the coming days and weeks!
