As time goes by

Today I was really struck by a visual reminder of just how little Liam still is.....how far he has yet to go.

Matt took of his wedding ring last night and set it on the dresser while he went out to rotate the tires. I found it while Liam and  I were dusting this morning and so I handed it to him to hold for a bit. He loves pointing  out our "ings" to us daily, so I thought it would be fun to let him wear it for a bit.
What I didn't anticipate however was the gutteral emotional reaction that I would have to seeing the ring I placed on my husbands hand the day we took our vows so big upon my little sons thumb.
I teared up immediately looking at his small soft fingers so carefully rubbing his fathers ring. They are such a stark contrast to Matt's strong, big, weathered hands. 

I've been thinking all day about how quickly two years has passed. And how everyday I can see more and more of the man he's going to become. A man so very much like his daddy.

So brave. SO brave! Strong, compassionate, introspective, observant, outgoing, FUNNY!
I could, of course, go on and on :) 

How lucky I am to be entrusted with his care and keeping as his tale unfolds.
