Don't Blink

I heard a country song the other day called "Don't Blink" (sorry, don't know who it's by) but it talks about an old man that turned 100 and his age-old advice was don't blink because even 100 years flies by fast.

I feel like I've blinked and my Baby Nathan has really grown! He has been in our family now for six months...half a year!

Josh has a doll named Baby Paul and I've occassionally taken pictures of Nathan and Paul together. Here is Nathan posing with Paul in April (newborn), June (2 months), August (4 months), and October (6 months).

Nathan and Paul could pass for twins in the begining (I used to freak when I'd see Paul face-down on the floor, mistaking him for the real baby) and now Nathan could eat Paul for breakfast. Where has the time gone? I'm trying not to blink!

I cannot wait to see Nathan (and Jacob & Joshua & you, of course-We'll miss Willie) in person! Scott always asks, "How big do you think Nathan is now?" We're counting down the days until we can see how big he is for ourselves. That doll has come in handy for more than one purpose:)

I love the slide show! It's great. I totally know how you feel. My #3 will be 1 next month! It goes so dang fast. (And I think that song is by Kenny Chesney.)

I love your pictures with the doll, what a good idea! (Plus it's fun to see a boy with a doll, it's so cute!) Time does fly. Bridger turns one on Thursday and I'm still trying to figure out where the time went.

Nat, this is so cool! I have a friend that takes a picture of her kids every month with the same stuffed animal for the the first year and then again at 18 months, and then each birthday. Such a fun way to see how they grow! I totally should have done that, but I guess I blinked and I have three kids and my baby is almost 9 months! Oops! Anyway, that Nathan is darling! And I agree with Katie- I love that your boys have a baby doll!
