birthday season

I cannot believe it's already March.  The second, to be exact. 

In just a few short days (eight), my sweet "babies" will be celebrating their ninth birthday.  How in the world does the time go so quickly?  It still seems like just yesterday that they were born!

In a day after their ninth birthday (on the eleventh), my oldest son will be a teenager.  SHUT YOUR MOUTH.  That one blows my mind.  I don't feel like I'm old enough to have a teenager.  I still feel like it wasn't that long ago that I was a teenager!  I think I'm in denial. 

Last, but certainly not least, is my sweet Drew.  Just a short twenty-three days after Graham celebrates his birthday, Drew will celebrate his twelfth birthday. 

It's a crazy time of year around my house, but it's so much fun...and when it's over, I'm kind of glad that all their special days are so close to one another.  They always celebrate with their friends.  They have sleepovers.  They eat lots of cake.  Or brownies, like Graham requested last year.  Maybe it'll be a cookie cake.  Who knows?

Sigh.  I pray that I enjoy each stage of their life.  I want to be a good parent to them, and a friendly one.  I want to be a fun parent.  I pray that they (and their friends) see me that way. 

Happy Friday and love to all.

I can't believe the twins will be 9- babies can't grow up so fast!
