5 Years: A Snapshot

It's hard to believe that it has been 5 years since I had two newborn babies in my arms. I had to reminisce a bit and look through some old photos. And while I was at it, I thought I'd share a few:
One month old, and already full of personality.
The morning of their first birthday party, with their buddy Elmo.
Two years old, on a nature hike with Daddy.
Three years old, and wanting to do everything Daddy (and Mommy) does. Helping Daddy move some dirt here:
Four years old, and they each caught a fish (and got their first serious sunburn) on their very first fishing trip with Daddy.
Today, at barely five years old, at their church preschool graduation. Onward and upward!
It went so fast. Everyone tells you to enjoy the moments when your children are small. Everyone says the time flies by. And on some level you can understand that in your head when people say it. But to experience it as your children go from 0-5 in the blink of an eye makes you truly understand. And you become part of that group of "everyone," who wistfully tells someone else to enjoy their baby, because it really goes by fast. Even though they will know soon enough.
