Don't Blink

Since when did this little baby boy.....






















































































become this big kid?









































And this little baby girl....












































































































become this big girl?









































And this big tough Marine...



















become this Daddy?
































































And this dreamer girl...




























become this crazy momma?






























































And these four people...
































































































































become us?



I was here the whole time, yet somehow I never saw it coming.
Do any of us ever really see it coming?

Makes me almost afraid to ever blink my eyes again.
They grow so fast. We grow so fast.

It's easy to now see it all as one big circle and one (that I pray) we're only halfway around because it's the ride of a lifetime.

GREAT post!!!! Have you heard the Kenny Chesney song, "don't blink"? It was playing in my head while I read and looked at your amazing photos.
