Tick. Tock.

And so the days go. One by one. Faster all the time. Yesterday Anna clapped for the first time. She’s getting better and better at crawling every day. She started saying, “Ma, ma” at the beginning of the week.

Lilla eagerly looks at me with pride as she shows me how she is writing, very legible, D’s now. She uses the word please without prompting. After weeks of repeatedly asking, she was baptized on Sunday.

Yesterday, my husband turned 35. I just thought, wow, how can we be half way to 70 already? I often still feel like a 20 year old. Shouldn’t I be sitting in a lecture somewhere finding out about Pavlov’s dog? Who the heck would give this little girl two kids, a husband and a house to take care of?

It’s just amazing how these years have gone. Our family has grown. We’ve lived in our second house for over 2 years now. It’s been two years since we’ve been to Hungary.

I’d just like to stop time for a minute. Maybe sip some lemonade as I lay in the hammock, enjoying my still small children and NOT watch the world go by!

How in the world has it been 2 years since you went to Hungary?? I remember reading about your trip on the blog! What in the world?

Time just goes by way too quickly.

I hope you are keeping journals. You express yourself so well.

The one good thing about your children getting older is grandkids! They are worth the aging. I promise.

Amy, I could use your help. I just opened a blogger account and want to add the third column so I can put the "five minutes" for coding. Will you please tell me how to do this? Thanks so much, gail

gail said...

I don't understand, Amy. Where do you get it and where to you put the code??? You are much more tech savvy than I am!

Hey Amy,
It's been a while (and a crazy summer) since I stopped by your blog, but I just wanted to say hi and tell you how beautiful your family is. I can't believe how big the baby is now! You are truly blessed, and I love reading about how you're enjoying the summer. I, too, am constantly on the lookout for the "pause" button for life! Let me know if you find it!
