In the Blink of an Eye

We just celebrated Jameson's fourth birthday. My little boy is not so little anymore. He's so smart. So charming. And such a good big brother. It's so rewarding, yet so sad, to watch your children grow up. Slow down. Please. Slow down.

Julie is much better at putting these things into words. My take is in photographs. Happy birthday, Jameson.

Awesome. And you used the song I was going to use for my next Murphy Clan video, so now I have to think up something new.

As I was watching that, I was thinking you should do the baby version of that picture a day thing that guy Noah did, and you sort've did that at the end.

But you should do a real project and take a pic a day of each of the kids. Talk about dramatic changes!

Thanks. I've been thinking about doing the picture a day thing, but I barely manage to brush my teeth everyday. Though, even if I had something like a 70% success rate, that would be a lot of pictures and a pretty cool video.

You should announce a Murphy theme for a video and have everyone send you the needed photos. I love the ones you've done so far, especially the grumpy set.

oh good lord you went and made me cry!
beautiful pictures.
wonderful sentiment.

James said...

As if the pictures didn't make me sad enough...

"Dad, thanks for making my movie. Did you make it so that when you and mom die I can watch it and remember all the stuff we did together?"

Jeez kid. You don't have to be so grown up.

Has he been reading the will again? You should really try "Goodnight Moon" first.
