The nerve.

This is what I find every morning when I go get Ace out of bed. Ace pulls himself into standing position and yells at me until I come and get him.

And this is what Jackson is doing every Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday. Ready to head out the door to get to school. He is eager to go every morning.
And this is one of Ace's favorite activities. Standing up, holding onto a box; pushing it so he can walk a little.

WHO DO THEY THINK THEY ARE? Could they please stop with all the growing? Jackson amazes me everyday with how much he is growing. He is so smart and talkative. His understanding of certain things just floors me. And Ace... Ace is turning from a baby to a toddler before my very eyes. He is crawling anywhere and everywhere. I have had to baby-proof the entire house. (And he still seems to find something he shouldn't have!)

Of course I am happy my boys are meeting all the appropriate milestones because it means they are here and healthy. But I can't seem to get a grasp on how fast it all goes by. I am so thankful that Jesus has entrusted me with their sweet little lives. This season of my life will be over so quickly. I know sometimes I get bogged down in the everyday stuff. The wiping of body parts, always being the human tissue, the times where all I say is "NO", the days that feel like all I get accomplished is cleaning the kitchen. But in between those mundane moments is the miraculous. The beautiful moments surround me. Like snuggles with my sweethearts, Jackson picking a flower out of the yard to give to me, and watching Ace develop a skill that he has worked so hard at. I love this life. But please, could time just slow down a little?

I love the first pic of Ace! Totally looks like a professional shot. They are definitely two cuties!
