Fishing The Day Away

When I was pregnant with Kai, I dreamed about all the fun things we would do together and all the memories we would make. I remember telling J.D. "I don't want him to grow up, but I'm so excited for all of his firsts. To make as many memories with him as we have with Kona." This weekend was one of those moments. Kai went on the boat for the first time, which is a huge milestone in the Roberts household. It makes me a little sad that another milestone is in the books. One of the moments I had been dreaming about has happened. I know there are many more moments to dream about and look forward to, but I have to admit I'm a little sad. Our snuggly baby is now old enough to sit on the boat and help his daddy ore. The days that seemed so far away are here. I want to hang on and cherish every moment I have with my boys, because I know it goes by too quickly. The babies I couldn't wait to hold and kiss and now fishing, begging to go in the boat and telling their daddy they want to be just like him when they grow up. As excited as I am for the next milestone, I pray that time will slow down, just a little bit.

    1. I'm glad I'm not the only one! I've really been struggling lately, with wanting them to stay little forever and excited to see who they grow up to be.
