10 years ago this morning we welcomed our second son at 9:40 a.m. on
a Sunday morning, three weeks early after I had been on 18 weeks of
bed rest. I thought we were going to have a first time thumb sucker
but it turned out he wasn't. This 10 years has gone quick!
Such a happy boy.
He was a 'by the books' kind of baby.
He played, slept, ate. Played, slept, ate.
His big brother thought he was boring.
With hubs being an intern the year he was born we didn't mind boring and predictable at all!
His favorite first food was my lasagna.
Was spent being a snuggle boy with Moma, Nana's boy twice a week (while I worked) and
at a friends house once a week.
He was also in speech therapy once a week.
Ms. Melissa helped him learn how to talk in record fast speed!
He was her best student. ;)
His first movie was Finding Nemo.
What an exciting year!
He wore his Bible Man cape each day and night while loving on his baby
sister as often as he could get his hands on her.
(and spent a fair amount of time house hunting with me!)
A favorite toy this year was his A, B, C's on the fridge.
As we moved to a new town we decided to keep our oldest home
to home school his 4th grade year.
This proves to be a bonding year for the two of them as they are constant
companions. I bought a picture frame that sums it up perfectly; 'my buddy.'
His first trip to Disney was spent perfectly in the rain with lower than usual crowds and
his favorite ride was Goofy's Barnstormer.
Big brother, again! This time it's a brother.
He arrived just 6 weeks before school started his
He made his first friends this year and requested a first birthday party with friends.
A mighty fine young man that loves to tell jokes and make us laugh!
Baseball is his favorite activity by far!
The year his teeth fell out over and over again!
We kept him home for school this year (and the next) allowing for extra time
to do many activities including baseball,
swimming, hip-hop dance and pottery.
A part time home schooler this year;
In all of his free time he spends fishing with Papaw, his oldest brother and daddy.
Taking a year off from baseball he discovers soccer is fun but not quite as fun while he loves swim team!
He loves playing his video game time also with Stunt Man Ignition being his favorite.
A year of firsts.
First go-cart driving, first time to ski, first time in Colorado and Utah, first year to play football,
first time to do long division and
first time to try growing his hair out like his big brother. ;)
And now he is 10.
