In Daylights, In Sunsets, In Midnights, In Cups of Coffee

This time last year Steve and I were on our belated honeymoon, soaking up the sun in Cali and then heading on down the Mexican Riviera on a massive cruise ship. It was a wonderful trip and I will always look back on our time away with the fondest of memories.
Two years ago today, we had just embarked on the journey of raising a puppy. We had had Rolo for a few weeks and he was making a mockery of our carpet, peeing and pooping on it all day long. I remember being so sleep deprived, as he whined to go pee every two hours during the night. Steve pretended not to hear, so I was the poor fool who had to pick up the puppy and toss him into the night air to do his business on our lawn. I was working and finishing up school, so I was extra exhausted.
This time next year, Steve and I will be parents. How crazy is that?! The time, how it flies. Before we know it we'll be having our bums wiped by a care aid in a nursing home.
Life is weird.

Robin and I often joke about moving into an retirement center when we are really old and going down to the mal room together to eat jello with a whip cream on top, and how we will hold eachothers wrinkly hands and play with our wrinkles! Nice visual hey? Hehe!

It really is INSANE how quickly the years go by. I think they only go by quicker and quicker as we get older, especially once kids come along. It feels like yesterday that I was cheering Abby on, encouraging her to roll over! That was a year ago this month ... NUTS.
