I Don't Want To Miss A Thing

I don't wanna close my eyes
I don't wanna fall asleep
'Cause I'd miss you, baby
And I don't wanna miss a thing
'Cause even when I dream of you
The sweetest dream would never do
I'd still miss you, baby
And I don't wanna miss a thing

- Aerosmith, "I Don't Want To Miss A Thing"

When Annalise was first born, I used to listen to this song all the time. It pretty much summed up how I felt being a new father. Now, with Isabella in the hospital, I'm reminded of the song again and sadly it's under vastly different circumstances.

My New Year's Resolution is to not take any moments for granted, because you just don't know how much time you ultimately have. I don't know how many times the kids have "nagged" me to look at something and I was too "busy" with something else to pay attention. Looking back, what I was doing probably wasn't that important. Just today, I was playing around with Nathaniel and tickling him and he was laughing up a storm - and I sat back and reflected and was enveloped in the moment and I smiled. The other day, when Isabella was home and we were listening to some music, I picked her up and we began dancing. Again, I soaked in that moment and cherished it, and wished it would never end.

On behalf of our family, we wish everyone a healthy and happy New Year. We thank everyone for your continued support.
