2 AND 4

Hello Everyone! Our kids keep getting bigger, I'm reminded of this every day as I see so many pictures posted of your beautiful children brand new and cuddled up in their swaddles. I think back to just a couple years ago being in the hospital getting to know my newborn babies. We stared at their little features for hours on end, cried with joy, and sat breathless taking in all the little coos and cries that squeaked out of their mouths like music. Being able to fit our babies entirely in our arms without flailing legs, gently rocking them to sleep as we gaze deeply into their eyes. "What will they be like?" We ask ourselves. You don't realize in that moment but you already know them, so much of their personality is right there from birth. People tell you during that time that it goes by so quickly and you should soak it up as much as you can, but in-between sleepless nights, endless diaper changes, and general worry it's hard not to take those fleeting moments for granted. You turn around and find that you are no longer bouncing a baby around in your arms, and instead your chasing them around the house.

Our children are now 2 and 4 years old. We take so much pleasure in playing games with them, teaching them, and just goofing off and laughing together- but they certainly aren't babies anymore. At night we picture them tiny and wrap our arms around them and take in deep breaths. We hold their hands while they sleep and sit still trying to make those moments last forever.

We are so blessed for these little lives we've made. Not that you need it from us, but we just wanted to send out a little reminder- keep up the good work, enjoy your little ones, write down everything, take pictures, they are growing right before your eyes.

Love you all!

The Woolfs.
