My oldest is going to be 18(!) in just a few short months. Some days that realization hits me like a brick and other days it doesn’t seem to phase me. Lately though I seem to be focusing on it more and more.
So what do I do? I just end up scrapping pages from when he was a little dude and it’s all very bittersweet.
I can’t quite remember what happened the day these pictures were taken – it was like 16 years ago…but, he’s always had the same personality. He is a super sweet kid with a huge heart. He can get hurt easily, but he’s just as quick to forgive and move on. It’s awesome and I wish I had that ability.
