Today was my daughters 3rd birthday. It’s crazy to look back over the last three years and think about all the experiences I have had watching her grow up to this point. For months when my wife was pregnant we were repeatedly told “time flies! Enjoy them while they’re young!” But I never understood what they meant. Fast forward to the first couple months of Phoenyxs life. I was exhausted, barely getting any sleep, and longed for the days our baby would sleep through the night. I was so used to getting up in the middle of the night I could walk through our house half asleep and hit the right buttons on the microwave to heat up milk with the lights off! Those days were hard. But, looking back... I kind of miss them. And it’s surreal to think my daughter is already turning 3. Just a few short years ago she was a tiny, helpless being completely reliant on my wife on I for all her needs. Now, she is walking, talking, making demands, and wants to do everything herself. It’s a very bittersweet moment to watch your child pass so quickly through the precious moments of their life. Just as you are settling into a phase, a new one starts a long with new behaviors and personality quirks. I wouldn’t trade being a Dad for anything in the world. It has been the best and most rewarding  adventure of my life! I just wish I could hit pause now and then to live in these moments longer. I’m scared to blink and find myself sending her off to college...
