Happy Birthday Judah!
The sunshine of my life, Judah turned 1 today. I can hardly believe a whole year has passed since he was born. If I had a quarter for every time someone told me to "enjoy this time" with my kids, Steve and I would be able to go to Hawaii next week. The other day, an older lady at Trader Joes told me enjoy my boys, so I told her that I was trying. Really and truly, I try every day to enjoy them. It can be very challenging though, with all of life's demands, days that are so hot you want to scream if sticky hands pull on you and when they scream and fight and run around while you have a napping baby, it's hard to remember to "enjoy this time." But days like today, when it's 80 degrees at night and we stay up late laying on the trampoline...Watching Judah devour a cake, listening to Jason tell us he doesn't want to go to college because he'd rather stay home with us, watching Silas reenact out his entire day in gag reel format, makes it all worth it.
P.S. Happy Birthday to Ryder Ray Barbara who now shares the same birthday as Judah!
