When we’re young, time inches along. Events take forever to come about and the years pass by agonizingly slow.
The moment you have a child, though, time plays a cruel trick…it speeds up. It’s as though the world spins faster, causing the years to blend together. The toy trucks and swords your little boy used to play with give way to XBox’s and iPods. The little hand you used to hold now engulfs yours. And although he now exceeds your height, you can still feel the weight of him nestled in your arms. Trying to hold each moment in your heart is impossible.
I suppose that’s why we take pictures after all, isn’t it?
Happy Birthday, Drew. We are so proud to be your mom and dad.
