Say It Aint So

I have been a Mom for 10 years now. My sweet 1st born son turned 10 at 3:35 in the morning. YIKES!!! Where does the time go.

He arrived via C-Section, he did not want to come out it was warm and cozy in there. He still kinda operates that way, slow, easy going, wants to soak up what is going on around him. This is a sweet kid, people like him, me too. I trust him, he is honest and I know when he is with others he chooses cautiously and makes good choices. Lord please let this continue into those teen years.

This picture is way out of focus . . . Grandma called this morning to wish him a happy birthday he looks delighted. So sweet I had to share

Thanie made him a special birthday card . . . Of course I teared up, I think it was the 3rd time since last night.

The night before one of the kids birthday I like to go to bed and remember all that I can about the birth (excluding the pain). Such sweet memories of his arrival. Holding and smelling him for the first time. The love I feel for my kids is something I never knew until this kid was born. Thanks Zach

I love you Zachy

I don't know if you can see the radio on his shirt, the one he calls old fashioned. I didn't even realized it looked "old fashioned" I am getting old, possibly a reason for one of the times I cried.

It has been a joy and pleasure to be your momma for 10 years, looking forward to many more. I love you!!

Number 4 . . . I must go get a tissue now.

The Park

It was a beautiful day at the park. It really feels like spring in February. We enjoyed it.

This is my long time very good friend Steph, we met in Kindergarten. In fact way back in Junior High we had BFF necklaces, we each had half a heart and when you put them together they made a whole. Cheesy . . . I know. But really my life would not be the same without her.

This is her sweet baby boy

All this kids together.

Nathaniel and Grace (steph's girl) have spent tons of time together they often act like an old married couple. Check out how they look at each other, pretty cute!

Toddler Bed

Sleep continues to change around here. Naomi is sleeping in our room, we had little crib the size of a pack-n-play. A couple of weeks ago I noticed that she was touching on both ends (if she was totally stretched out) so I searched craig's list and got this cute little toddler bed. She likes it and even makes it in the morning. There is room for her and 2 Kia Lan dolls and her big ol' teddy. Hoping someday she will be O.K. with it in her own room but for now she is in Mom and Dad's room.

One more thing . . . we just gave up the bedtime bottle, everyone was ready.
