Sometimes it amazes me how quickly time goes by.
I can remember being in the hospital the day Olivia was born.
every person I encountered that day
who was ever a parent gave these wise words:
"Enjoy every minute with her because they grow too fast."
At that point, I was thinking, "Sure, sure, of course."
Well, I can now officially say that even though I may have thought
I was enjoying every minute of her,
somehow, someway, 16 years have gone by in the blink of an eye.
I'm left, scratching my head, thinking,
"Why didn't anyone warn me this would happen?"
Ahh, but yes they did warn me.
And I don't think it matters one bit.
Time just moves too quickly regardless.
Happy 16th Birthday, Olivia!
You are a ray of bright sunshine in our lives
and we couldn't love you more!
And also, since you're kind of a genius,
can you figure out a way to slow time?
