Today, I am officially the mom of a 3 year old. How is this even possible? It seems like yesterday that after 22 hours of labor and a c-section, Justin and I finally got to meet our little prince. I've blinked and somehow Raylan is 3 years old today. Where does the time go?
Time flies by so quickly, but it seems like it passes more quickly when you have children. I'm excited to see Raylan grow older and accomplish many things. However, I would be lying if I said I wasn't sad too. It hurts my heart to know that he is growing up so fast. With each passing day, he becomes more independent and needs me less and less. In the last year, he broke himself from the paci and became potty trained. He has learned so many things and has became quite the intelligent little man. I dread the day that I have to send him to preschool because I feel like I can no longer protect him from the world and from his food allergies like I have. It really is an overwhelming feeling for me. Although I don't want to see him grow up so fast, I am thankful that God has blessed me with this precious little boy. In the last 3 years, Justin and I have had the most joy in our lives all because of Raylan. Raylan has taught us what love truly is. He is the most intelligent, energetic, fun-loving and strong-willed child that I have ever seen. He loves going to church, he loves Story Time, Handy Manny and he sure loves his hot wheels. He is the best thing that has ever been ours. I am so thankful that God chose to bless us with Raylan. We are so blessed to be his parents and we could not ask for more. Happy 3rd Birthday Raylan! Mommy and Daddy love you to the moon and back!
