This big bro is just around the age of my own boys when they became big brothers. It feels like just yesterday, we were knee deep in the stage of diaper changing and potty training (simultaneously– hands up for the 2 under 2 club!), but then today I quickly realized how it’s just a distant memory.

For the first time in 7 (yes, 7!!!) years, I had a quiet home with 3 little boys in school. I tried my best not to check the clock every 10 minutes to see how long until I could go scoop up my baby boy from his first day of preschool.

Each season has something precious about it, but regardless of what season you land in today, don’t you wish you could bottle up parts of it to keep forever? That’s what an image does– it can’t quite bottle the smells of new baby or the pattering of little feet, but it sure does help bring your mind and your heart right back to those moments.

These are the days, mama– hold tight (and take the photos).
