Welcome Fall, Baby Dear....

Lately, I have been reminiscent of the early days of my pregannacy. I am remebering being pregnant at this time last year, and longing for that wonderful, magical feeling of holding a life inside of you, growing, nurturing your little pumpkin seed. I absolutely loved being pregnant! It was not like anything I can ever remember feeling, and really, is the most wonderful feeling in the world. I can think of nothing better, outside of holding your little one in your arms. My dear friend is pregnant, and I could not be happier for her, and her family. I must say my joy for her, is bringing back so many memories...I can't imagine never being able to experience that feeling, and I am so thankful that I will have the chance, again, someday to expereince it. I would be pregnant all the time, and have a whole brood of pumpkins if I could. My own little pumpkin patch! I would love to have baby after baby after baby. I can't begin to say how fufilling children are and how they fill your soul with such utter joy and love, you feel as though it will burst and rain down around you. The whole process from start to finish, I love every step.

Sweet baby dear, before you even were, I loved you, before I knew you, I loved you, before you fluttered, moved, kicked, hiccuped. Before you breathed your first breath of life, before you cried your first cry, before I could hold you, as I watched you across the room, I loved you. Before you were mine, I adored you, I worshiped you, I prayed for you, I thanked God for you, I knew I'd lay down my life for you, a million times over. As I held you, watched your tiny chest move up and down, felt your tiny heartbeat, held your tiny hand, I knew that You were mine, and as long as I lived there would never be anything as important as you, as perfect as you. I knew in those moments, you were mine, and I loved you.

Umm, this rubber ducky is mmm, good!
"What are you talking about?! I think my hair looks good like this!"
"Well, you know my name is Simon, and I like to do drawrrrings!"

"Rubber ducky likes it when I eat his bottom, he really does, he told me."

"And the duck stands alone..."

Avid Fan!

"Is that an interception??!!!""
"Whew that was a close one, better watch it Jay."

"I can't watch, I'm so nervous."

"C'mon Olson, pull it together!"

"Wait, what's that inside there? A puppy? How'd they do that? Huh? What? Is that game still on? I'm taking a Time-out, let me know who wins!"

Thanks, Uncle Troy and Aunt Angie for my Bears Cheerleading Uniform! As you can see, I bring the Bears luck! Plus, the Blue and the Orange look so good on me! So much more flattering tham Blue and Silver!!! Don't you think?!

Daddy Day-Yeah!

" I love my Daddy, I love my daddy, I love my daddy, Yeah!!!"

Daddy bought me a pair of jeans and a long sleeve white tee-we won't talk about where he got it. but, Mommy came home, and she said, "What happened to my little girl?"

I had some fun with Sweet Potatoes. And, I am liking them better this time around.

Daddy carried me around in the Baby Bijorn. I was trying to take a nap, I got a little fussy pants!

We should do this "Daddy Days" more often... or once a month would do just fine!
