The kids at our nephew's wedding last weekend.
They sure clean up nicely, I must say. This was one of those, "Hurry, let me get your picture. And smile this time!" photos right before we got on the elevator.
I look at these two and I can't believe my eyes. Where has the time gone? It sounds so cliche, but it's true. We spent some time up-north with family this past week. My great-nephew, who just turned 2, was there. I kept thinking back to when David was his age. I remember him standing on the kitchen chair up at the sink washing dishes. Now he doesn't need that chair anymore. And my great-niece, who is 5 months old, was also there. She was just learning to eat baby food and was full of smiles. Wasn't that Emily I was just holding and cuddling? Not any longer. A quick hug (and kiss on the cheek, if I'm lucky) before she runs out the door to spend time with her friends is about all I get.
Cherish your little ones, for the grow so quickly. It's bittersweet I tell you. *sniff *sniff
