First – In compiling a year’s worth of pictures and videos of a 2-year-old, it’s shocking how much nudity there is. Honestly, rating this “appropriate for all audiences,” is a bit of a stretch considering the amount of full frontal that was left on the editing room floor.
Second – Lindsay knows how I cringe when I hear parents say things like “where’s the pause button,” and “time is going too quickly,” but there is a certain nostalgic amnesia that overtakes a dad when he pours over a full year worth of pictures of his kid to make a video that the kid won’t appreciate for the next 30 years or so. As much as I joked and complained…I really liked Jake as a 2-year-old. Do I want time to slow down? No. Do I want time to speed up? Not really. Am I glad that I got to spend the last year with this little jerk? Absolutely.
Jake has made me not just a better father, but a better person, in the way only a first child can. I’m incredibly lucky that God had the foresight to put him in my life!
