the years go fast, but the days go so slow.....


























What happened to the baby??? The first picture was taken last fall, just as Suzanna was learning to walk. I had gotten this cute little shirt off of eBay, now this year when putting it on her again it's getting just a tad short on the arms. Hmmmm....Sweet little Suzy please quit growing up so fast!!! Some days seem so very long when having 4 children, and when I look at these pictures I think how did we get here? How is our littlest member of our family already 2? Someone told me recently when having toddlers the years go fast, but the days go slow. Oh so true! For the first time in 8 years we have no children in diapers. That is just crazy! But just when you think you're going to start saving money, by not buying diapers....Your oldest has her first orthodontist appointment next week. Oh well, it was a nice thought.








Remember me, back on August 31 talking about our problem here at home??? Our office problem?? You can look here if you have no idea what all the drama is about. Well we're working on it. We are almost done, but the "painter" is holding me up. I won't name any names....But Donovan finally just finished the last coat of paint. "Someone" will not allow their wife to touch a paintbrush. Which really, is just fine by me. Anyways...Here's a sneak peak of the office and the furniture painting. I LOVE how it turned out!!!











Here is the quote of the day:

Yesterday while cuddling with William.

Me: "William, I love being home with you all day!"

William: "I love going to the babysitter."



Wow, I feel the love.

I love painted black furniture! (My foot is in my mouth if it's not black, but it looks black on my monitor.)

I know, the years go by so fast. It is so much fun to watch them grow & learn. Maybe if somebody wasn't so busy shopping & going to their favorite restaurant without their favorite sister they could get their office done! Not mentioning any names.....Carraba Queen.:o)

So cute! I love the way you said that, the years go so fast, the days go so slow! That is the perfect quote for most of my days! Love the furniture painted black!! can't wait to see it all done!

Stacey just wrote this quote (your title) in a comment she put on my blog. It really is so true. My youngest just turned 6 months - a milestone I never thought we would reach during his first 3-4 months of very loud, very frequent screaming. When you are in the middle of it, it feels like forever, but all of a sudden you wake up, and the years are passing by. Thanks for the reminder.

Kaiya has that same shirt from last year and she's been wearing it again this year with similar changes as Suzy had. :)

Wow, what a change in your baby that's not such a baby anymore! She's such a sweetie!
