Willi Vanilli or in other words, this one's for you, Natalie...for soon you will be a mother...

found this cute little pic of my 15 year old boy.

Every time I look at it, I nearly choke. Where have the last 15 years gone?

Really, I'm going to turn around and Will is going to be scooting around on the floor, or flailing his arms and legs because he's so SO ACTIVE and such a spaz....right?

Well, this is for all of you with itty bitty ones...soak it up for me today. I miss my yiddle guy. He's still here...just a little bit taller, and that sweet baby smell IS GONE. (lemme tell YOU)...but thankfully, he's still just as smiley, trusting, kind, open and awesome...for that, I'm praising God tonight...I have 5 of the best kids around.

I love you, Will, Ethan, Melanie, Levi and Molly. I am not really worthy of being your mother...but for some reason, He sees me as worthy. I will never understand that....

This title is weird. I know. but my sister in law, Natalie, and her hubby, Nick (see Sept 2009) are expecting their first little bundle...and that always makes me nostalgic. new life. nothing like it. a gift to be cherished most certainly...

Good night everybody...

So, I'm wet-eyed and sporting a lump in my throat right now (was it coincidence that "Landslide" was playing when I was reading your post?) Thank you for the reminder. I need that. XO

Amy, you crack me up! Every baby needs to be in a bucket at some point in their lives, right? :)
Heather, it was kinda funny that Landslide was on, huh? I knew you'd heed the advice given...I wish someone had told me to cherish those days more than I did. awww, you are such a sweetie pie. hug those little boys for me, k? before you know it, they will be 15 and 13...nuff said. sniff sniff...love ya girls.

As always, your pix always make me smile. And, the fact that you have somehow managed to keep this blog sight going. You might be able to multi-task, but I am a bit overwhelmed right now...Soooo, I could always help out with the expenses. teehee...hope that you are doing well and enjoying this lovely winter.
