I have been feeling down for the last few days. It has to do with my upcoming trip to New Orleans with Caleb and the fact that I will be leavign my little boy with my mom for three days. I haven't went more than 8 hours without seeing him, and even then, when it is time to leave I am all giddy thinking about the big smile I will recieve when I walk through the door. His seperation anxiety is really high right now, he actually screamed when I left this morning. I hate seeing him upset, and know that I need time to myself, but I really feel quilty about it all.

I will be missing his ten month birthday, not that its really all that signifigant, but I am upset about it nonetheless.


I am hoping to have a really great time. I know that Caelb is really looking forward to it. We have to pack tonight b/c we will be leaving right after work tomorrow. :-D I promise pics galore when I get back!!!

Dear sweet boy,

I cannot tell you how amazed I am with you. You constantly surprise me. You have begun to say bye-bye. It is so sweet to hear those words as I am walking out the door. You got your FOURTH hair cut, and I have to say you look so dashing. I think for your first birthday I am going to bring you to a real barber.

Some thing that we have learned over the past few months are patty cake (you do the best "throw it in the pan" ever!), peek-a-boo, and you have even started cruising around the furniture.

We dedicated you to the Lord last month, and really is was very bittersweet for me. I know that you are from me and your Daddy, but honestly, you belong to the Lord who created you in my womb. you are so sweet and sat so patiently in Pastor David's arms while he prayed over you. Daddy and I am so proud of you.

Your 9 month check up went really well. You are 17lbs 14 ozs and 26 1/2 inches long. So, you are still on the small side even though you eat like a pig. I am constantly thinking of new things that you can eat. Some of the newest that you like are over cooked noodles, leafy spinach, and baby cheetos.

You are so handsome and sweet, and we couldnt have asked for a better baby! I love you!!!



P.S. Pics to come soon!
