Four years ago: visual proof that time flies by





As I've been working on the soccer movie, it dawned on me that I haven't taken any video of the kids since Jake was a baby. I have plenty of pictures (see above), but I haven't used this movie program since then. Four years makes a huge difference- the girls have changed so much. I almost forgot that Emily used to wear a body worn CI, w/ a little backpack carrier. Her headpiece attached to her head via a really long cord, and we were constantly losing her headpiece. It would get hung up on something, and then the magnet would stick to anything and everything. I really like the BTE better. And Delaney- at this point she was nowhere near qualifying for a Cochlear Implant. Little did we know that less than a year and 1/2 later she'd be getting one. She was just coming into her own with soccer (no longer turning cartwheels out on the field, but developing her love of the game). Anyway, forgive my little trip down memory lane. I think sometimes it's nice to take a step back and look at how much everyone has changed, and how quickly it happens. Although one look in the mirror should do the trick-LOL.

Don't tell me they grow up so fast! I'm in complete denial that my kiddos are going to grow up, lol. Although potty trained would be nice....

I wish I could :( My baby will be 4 in May, I cannot believe it. On the other hand, as the fourth, I am thrilled to be almost done w/ diapers (he only uses a pull-up at night.....and even then we're almost done). Now we're moving on to a new phase, but it's exciting also!

I know what you mean though. Enjoy your little ones!
