This is proof that time is passing me by so quickly. I have known Nicolas (15) and Lucas (13) since they were a toddler and a baby. Every time I see them, they are always changing their looks. Why do they have to grow up so fast? Can’t they just stay little forever? As parents we are always excited to see our kids grow, from their first smile, first words, first steps, to graduating from high school, then college and then getting their very first job as a college graduate, and the list goes on. Somehow, deep inside each parent will wish that time can stand still and that their children still has their childhood innocence. Although this is impossible, parents will sometimes wonder where the time has gone. They will look back at old pictures and videos to remind them of how they used to be and wonder what the future will be like for them.
As for Nicolas and Lucas’ parents, Steve and Sylvia, there is no doubt in my mind that they are doing an excellent job as parents. I know for a fact that they are very pro active in their children’s lives. Whether they do something good or something that they don’t approve of, Steve and Sylvia will make sure that their children will be praised or disciplined. I know that these boys will be great adults with a promising future. So really, where has the time gone?
These pictures were taken as a Christmas surprise for Sylvia. I am able to post them because I got the text that she loved the pictures and it was her favorite present this Christmas. Sylvia, I’m glad you loved them because I loved taking their pictures, they were fun to photograph. I hope that these pictures have captured the boys’ unique personality as she sees them; and that she will one day look at them and wonder again, where has the time gone.
By the way, I snuck in a picture of the boys and their dad Steve.
