Two Big Years: Orion’s Birthday

by verdemama on February 15, 2011

If you were hoping for a sentimental “dear child-of-mine” letter or a retrospective of the past two years, I’m afraid you’ll be sorely disappointed. It’s not really my style to sob all over the WWW, plus I feel like a lot of other mom bloggers have already been there and done that to death, so there’s no need for me to go there.

But I will say, nothing makes you more acutely aware of the passage of time than watching your child rack up birthdays. Suddenly I feel like I’m aging in fast forward, and although the last 30-some years went by at a reasonable clip, I foresee the next 30 rushing by me way too fast. Many of my friends are just starting their families, either having recently given birth or will be very soon, and to them, I say this: absorb every nanosecond of the time you spend with your child. Be present. Play. For every time I’m bored out of my mind playing with Matchbox cars for the ninty billionth day in a row, I catch a glimpse of the future, when he no longer has any interest in playing with toy cars, or playing with me for that matter.

Happy birthday, little buddy

I’m always right behind you

The past two years have been a blast…

…looking forward to many, many more.

**And just because. I don’t even know this dog, but I think he’s awesome. How could you not smile when you see this? (I bet this dog would love it if you voted for us on Click the icon below to vote!)
