Paradox. Or is it Pair-o-ducks?

How can The Sprout be so big?

And look so grown up in his Sunday Best?

And, at the same time,

be so small?

And, clearly, still a baby next to his brother?

And how can my first baby, The Boy Scout, look so big?

And be so grown up?

When he's still my little boy?

Lord, teach me to number my days aright.

The years are flying by, even if the days (and nights) seem endless sometimes.

I don't want to miss a moment.
