And all of a sudden...

He's a week shy of 7 months. Where did the time go? When Bub was first born, I knew exactly how many weeks/days old he was. In my sleep deprivation, the time could not pass fast enough. Now that things are more settled and predictable, time seems to be moving at the speed of light. My little Boo is becoming his own little person and growing up so fast.

Sometimes I'm baffled by the idea that God is not bound by time. No schedules, no routines, no gotta-be-here-by-this-time. Such a foreign concept since my life ran on bells as a teacher and nowadays, I have to keep a schedule for Boo.  I think we get glimpses of eternity. i sense it most when I want to cherish a moment forever. When I am holding the baby and he rests his head on my shoulder, feeling safe and content, I want to hold onto that moment, but memories, videos and photos only offer a glimpse and doun't fully capture the tangible and non-tangible details. It reminds me that this world is not our home. We were designed for another home where we are not bound by the limits of time. I can't wait to experience that freedom, but for now, I'll cherish each and every special moment I have with this guy.
