you're too big, quit growing up!!

Today is Jacob's birthday and although it is exciting to have a big 6 year old in the family, I am a little sad. These kids just keep growing.

Last night we went to dinner at Cravings, were Austin was our wonderful server. On the way home Dave was talking to his mom and she asked if Austin was still in school. I butted in and said "he's a senior", although it came out proud it took everything I had to hold back the tears that were forming. When did Austin get all grown up. I can't even think about the fact that he leaves for his mission in barely over a year! I know I'm being emotional and he really is all grown up but this is HARD TO TAKE!

I just want to tell everyone what I was told a hundred times when I was young and quickly ignored because I didn't need any adult advice
"don't be so quick to grow up!"

Happy Birthday Jake (I found this picture yesterday and sure he's not even 2 in the picture - it is just me and Jake and I think we look pretty cute together!)

I think the oldest little Niece or Nephew in the family is always a benchmark for growth. I will always think Morgan is growing way too fast! Austin too, I don't even want to think about him leaving on a mission! Even though of course I will be excited for him, he just isn't old enough!

He is 6 today, holy cow!! Remember like yesterday when he was born! I was an aunt! I get to spend all afternoon with him! As for austin I plan to just treat him like he is my baby brother no matter how old he gets! I think that will work!
