And Just Like That...

In the blink of an eye...between sleepless nights and sleeping through the night our itty bitty baby girl.....
has been with us for 6 months already!
Just like that!!!  Life with 2 children...heck life in general has been whizzing by at breakneck speeds.  From working, to play dates, from cleaning to running life the days just blow right by!  There are days when I can't wait for bedtime to arrive and days like today that I find myself pumping the breaks just begging time to slow down!  And as if God knew exactly what I needed, we were blessed with a beautiful Spring day.  Driving home from school on the way to get the girls I knew exactly how we were going to spend it...at my favorite place...at our special place...the only place that I know of that is able to stop the hands of time...the beach!

 The perk of living on Cape Cod is that one is never more than a few minutes away.  With a packed bag of toys we were off.!
This about sums up how we all felt about being there!
We laughed...we danced...Aubrey ate sand...and touched it for the first time...Em explained the "beach rules" to her...we dared the waves...we collected scallop shells and mermaid's fingernails...and I took an obscene amount of pictures....
It was a day breathed by God...filling our love buckets until they were overflowing!  There was no phone, no distractions...just us and the beach and it was perfect!!!  Just what I needed to keep me from getting chocked up about how quickly time is flying by...the brakes worked this time and I am forever grateful!

  7. She's so gorgeous -- my daughter (Audrey!) turns 6 months this Saturday, and she's my first. Hard to see time fly but but they sure do get more fun by the day, huh?
