Awhile ago, Jacob looked like this:

about a week old

Now he looks like this:

nearly 9 years

Every year around Jake’s birthday, I get a little freaked out by how much time has passed. I also sometimes can’t believe I have managed to get him to this point with no major terrifying incidents. (There’s still time, I know.)

Tomorrow Jake starts 4th grade. And then next week he turns 9.

Where is the time going?
