What a difference a Year Makes!

It was almost 80 Degrees here today and there wasn't a cloud in the sky! Far cry from Monday's weather. Ryder and I took advantage of the warmth and hit the park this afternoon. Two parks to be exact, because the Park that has a little slide has no swings and the park with swings only has big slides that are overcrowded with "Big Kids" who pay no attention to the little ones as they plow right over them...sorry for the rant! While Ryder was swinging I started thinking that this was about the time last year I took him to the park for the first time. I took a picture of him with my phone a year ago (almost) and I took one of him with the same phone today. All I can say is GEEEZ, they grow so fast and what a huge difference a Year makes!

80 degrees! Wow - we don't get that until May or June here - It's crazy how they get big isn't it. Complete strangers have been telling me not to blink lately.

I couldn't agree more - the time seems to FLY by. But each stage is so much fun that I forget how much I loved when they were tiny!

A big difference.... its such a reminder how precious life is. To stop and enjoy it. Only 12 months ago he was that small and will never be again, ever!!!
