What's On My Heart

I have been so tired lately that my blogging has been a little off and one of the things I am missing most is linking up with Casey on Friday's!!!! 

I have so much on my heart these days.    But most importantly, my little Aidan will be 4 on Tuesday.  My heart just sank even typing that.  4 years have flown by.  I know you hear all moms say this but I really do feel like I was pregnant just yesterday. 

Aidan has made me in to the person I have always wanted to be.  Sometimes I think to myself he is too good to be true. I have everything I want in my life. It scares me to death it all could be taken away.  In his four short years he has changed me so much.   My heart is so much bigger.  I am so proud that we are raising a polite, funny, handsome, happy little man.  He knows he is loved more than we could ever express.  We tell him at least 100 times a day.  Every other sentence is "We love you Aidan."

I always see moms with little babies and I want to say to them...Don't take a single moment for granted.  Take lots of pictures.  When your busy, and your little one is begging you to play or hold them, put down the laundry or the dishes and play.  The stuff can pile up, those moments will pass you by.   If once in a while your child wants to climb in your bed with you, let them.  In a couple of years they will want nothing to do with you, soak it all up.  

I am so glad Adam and I decided to wait to have a baby until Aidan was out of his baby years. We wanted to really enjoy him.  People tell us all the time they envy us that we have gotten this time with him.  It has been so special.  I worry I won't ever be able to love another human being as much as I love him.  God gave me the greatest gift in the world when we gave me Aidan.  He is so good.  I thank the Lord everyday for my boy. 

So this year he's four and I love him more and more everyday.  I wish he would slow down a little but at the same time I can't wait to see what God has planned for his little life.   Happy {Almost} Birthday My Sweet Aidan.

Happy birthday to your sweet boy. Yes it does go too fast. I have three boys. My youngest is 3 and I just want to freeze them all! On one hand it is a joy to watch them grow, but I am sure going to miss these days when they are young.

So I found you through Megan's blog (reading about the balloon launch you did for Cohen), and after reading more of your blogs, I'd like to follow you, however under your "follow" area, it isn't letting me do so :( I'm kinda sad about that, but plan on bookmarking your page, none the less...
