Today is LM's birthday. I cannot, CANNOT believe he is one already.
not sure where they time went. It seems like just yesterday that we
were headed to the hospital to have him. I'm not sure where the tiny,
sleepy, breakable little baby that they let us take home went. He is a
mover mover mover today...only stopping for snuggles and to bring me a
book to read to him.
I cried a lot today. It's so hard
to accept that he's been around so long....and I know how time will fly
from here. The idea that he's not really a "baby" anymore (plus a baby
on the way) just crushed me. I want him little and tiny forever. Plus--I
hated leaving him to go to work today (luckily, I forgot the
formula and had to make a special trip back to daycare on my morning
break). Stupid leap year...if not for you, his birthday would've been
Speaking of yesterday--we had a big party.
Thirty of our closest relatives packed the house...and I do mean
closest--there were another 20 of my aunts/uncles/cousins who are
probably pissed at me for not inviting them. Boo hoo...a house can only
hold so much and they never visit. Anyway. LM had a good time once he
got over being shy. He was still recovering from his first high fever
bout on Friday so he was a bit lethargic and uninterested in food.
tried his first cupcake. He thought it was odd (he hadn't had any sugar
yet) and enjoyed playing in it more. However, he did get enough of the
red frosting to break out in a rash all over his back/stomach and head
from the red food dye (according to Dr. Brother-in Law). Let's hope he's
right so that it's not something contagious and wrong at the same time
since red dye is in EVERYTHING yummy :-)
pictures shortly...they're all living happily together on several
cameras, cell phones and various other electronic devices.
can't believe it.....one year. He crawls, laughs, tells me "all done"
(amongst his other 6 words) and adores any kind of ball. He isn't weaned
off the bottle and is so-so with table food. He still wakes me up most
nights and struggles to go down to sleep unless I'm in the room.
BUT--he's smart as a whip and lights up when he sees us....and I still
can't believe he's mine to keep. Let alone been mine for a year.
