Congrats to the winners! I'll be emailing you for your addresses shortly. And thanks to all for joining in and making my blog birthday celebration a lot of fun.
On Sunday, I got to celebrate a very special birthday -- my son turned two years old. How did two years slip by so fast? It seems like I brought him home from the hospital only a short time ago. At this rate, I'm going to wake up tomorrow and discover that he's gone off to school!
Celebrating Micah's two years reminded me again of how quickly life gets away from us. In the here and now it seems to take forever, and so we indulge the illusion of time--we put off this and that, we neglect things that shouldn't be neglected. Like the baby scrapbook I never made for Micah. I had the scrapbook. I had the mementos tucked loosely in the pages. I kept telling myself I'd take the camera chip my next trip to the store, that I'd make a day of it when I had printed photos to work with. But I kept forgetting the camera chip. I never set aside time for the scrapbook. And several computer issues later, most of the photos I have of Micah's first years are in private albums on Facebook.
Don't feel bad for me--I can still download them to a CD and print them. I still have the mementos (somewhere in one of my boxes) and can still make the scrapbook. But I'll never have as many pics as I did, and they won't have the same quality.
