Where has time gone?

There once was a time when life just crept by in the Ham household but these days it is going so fast I find it hard to keep up! We are just 3 weeks away from the big move, and those weeks are sure to pass by quickly. My sweet, happy, precious baby boy is completely mobile... that kid can get from one side of the house to the next in a matter of minutes!!! I thought I had my hands full before, I am in big trouble now! As for Brookie Bear, well the "terrific" twos are in full swing and she has lost all sense of fear. She has found ways to climb on top of tables and counter tops, she knows what she wants and figures out a way to get it. We went to Katy Mills the other day for lunch with some friends, they have two little girls Megan, 3 and Ashley, 5. Brooke absolutely loved hanging out with the girls. After eating at Rainforest Cafe we made a lap around the mall, this was the part that almost had me in tears (and kicking myself for not having my camera). Brooke, Megan and Ashley were all holding hands walking through the mall. They were big girls leading the way. They could have cared less if we were behind them or not. Every time Brooke would get side tracked looking into a store the other girls would redirect her and they were on their way again. I know it won't be long before she will be asking me to drop her off at the mall and not need me at all. As crazy as life may seem sometimes, I wouldn't trade it for the world. I love to watch my babies grow and explore. I feel so blessed that I have such a great husband to provide for us and allow me to stay home with our kiddos. I would be devastated if I had to miss even one second of this. I know being a stay at home mom isn't for everyone but in my heart of hearts I know that this is one of those things God made me for. Well I have a million and one things to get done today, I hope you are enjoying your long weekend.

Oh yeah Rita, I got your message super late the other night, I am sorry your hair didn't turn out the way you wanted it to. That is the beauty of hair, you can always grow it back out and try again.

I completely understand you Kelli. I worked until we had Sam. Art was happy I was going to stay home with Sam. Watching him grow over the years and seeing all his firsts has been so exciting for me and him. Just wait till they run in from school and tell you about their day. I would do it all over again, I had some other friends and we were fortunate to be able to stay home with our kids. God certainly bless us with everything. Enjoy them time flys by.

Congrats on moving so soon. It seems like it was just yesterday that y'all were posting an empty plot of land saying this is where our house is going to be and now you are moving in 3 weeks. Time does fly.

It is great to stay home with the children while they are young if you can. I was able to stay home for about 3 years. I wished I could have stayed longer but I couldn't.

Good thing hair does grow back. It's not too bad though. I have been able to work with it.
