Time flies

I've been looking through old photos, amazed by how much my children have grown. So, here's a load of precious memories I'm going to share with you. (They're in reverse order, so my children get "younger" as you scroll down.)

Nolyn, Keagan, and Merikalyn (I believe this was our Christmas photo last year)

Me (October 2007)

Sweet Merikalyn with Keagan (who was not even a day old in this photo)

A handsome Nolyn

CRAZY Daddy!

A sweet uncle (Ryan, my husband's brother)

Me, Brandon, Nolyn, and Merikalyn at my nephew's game (Brandon's nephew, really)

Playing "horsey" with Merikalyn when I stopped by after working a shift at the restaurant.

A chubby 2-year-old Merikalyn

His expression is so hilarious!

"Hello? Hello? This is not a phone, it's a cat!" :)

Oh how I miss that baby-fine hair. *Sigh* He's so big now. He was just about one and a half in this photo.

I believe this was Christmas 2005

I woke her up from a nap just before we were about to leave for dinner with Brandon's boss.... and she had found some markers, colored all over herself (even in her nostrils) before falling asleep on top of the markers!

Time flies, my friend. I was looking at photos of a bloggy friend's newborn baby- her first, and I couldn't help but think, "Wow.... wasn't it just yesterday I was cuddling my sweet little girl? My firstborn?"

Time does fly by so quickly, Mandy. Children DO grow very fast! It seems like only yesterday that your parents came out to El Paso, TX/Anthony, NM for the holidays and stayed a few nights with us. You were just a little baby and you were so darling. You had a curl on top of your head, like the Gerber baby. One day you will be so glad for the memories you are recording in your blog. I loved these pictures . . . some of them just made me laugh and laugh, especially the last one with Merikalyn and the marker! I also like the one with Brandon and the catfish. I enjoy your blog so much.
