Despite my best efforts to enjoy each moment with an awareness of the preciousness of this blessing I have of being a mother, I find myself sometimes wondering where the time has gone and how it slipped by so sneakily in defiance of my diligence! Harrison is a constant teacher to me of what passion and joy look like as he illustrates these qualities in literally every minute whether he's listening intently to "Hey Jude", revving his engine to "drift" throughout our house, riding his scooter along the beach sidewalk, dancing wildly to "Thriller", or imitating every fall while watching the X games exclaiming, "mommy, you're Ken Block and I'm Travis Pastrana!!"
This year has been like every other since his birth...filled with the most wonderful moments and laughter and overwhelming love! Here are a few of my favorite moments caught on camera:
Pretending to be Paul McCartney
These moments actually pretty much sum up our lives right now. He is into music - Micheal Jackson is his recent obsession, rally cars, monster trucks, being silly, x games, preschool, peewee sports, being with his friends, and spending time with mommy and daddy. He especially loves mommy/son dates to the beach, trips to the library, when daddy gets home from school, eating grapefruit, putting stickers on his Book of Mormon reading chart and cuddling at night!
I am even more determined to savor every minute this year and not let them pass me by too fast! Happy Birthday Harrison, you are the joy of my life!
