Where does the time go?

For those of you keeping count, we have three nieces and one nephew. Our adorable nephew Ezra is three today! I can't believe how big he is getting, and so smart! I love talking to this cute boy, I can't imaging having greater conversations. My sister Allie and I were telling him how cute he is one time and he said in return, 'you tell me I'm so cute, but really I'm just a boy.' Kills me every time! I love modern technology that allows us to see him all the time through iChat and Facetime. This has been such a crazy year, I don't really know where the time has gone. It's so wonderful to get a chance to watch our nephew grow up and measure time based on his life, it helps me to simplify my life - if that makes sense. I hope that Ezra knows how much we love him, how much we miss him when we're not together and how much our lives have been enhanced because of him. We are so blessed as we watch our family grow and change. I look at Ezra and I can't wait to have kids and hope they are just like him!
Someday we will tell him stories of what a silly boy he was, we will always treasure the moments we get to be his Aunt Erin & Uncle Matt.
So, a happy third birthday to Ezra. We love you so much and can't wait to see you!

Oh Aunt Erin! Made me get a little teary. =) I read your post to Ezra and he did that scrunchy nose smile that he does. I asked if he knows how much you love him and he said, "yeeeeeeeaaaaaaaahhhh". HA!
Thank you for writing such a sweet birthday post. You will be such a wonderful mommy one day!
