>Look at me! Two blog posts in one week! Now that doesn’t happen around here very often. Today is a special day though, it’s my baby boy’s 1 &1/2 year old birthday. What’s that you say? That’s not even a real birthday? Ok, maybe it’s not, but it’s still such an amazing thing to be a part of. Not only is he a year and a half, but I have been a mom for a year and a half. That’s pretty special if you ask me. To have this wonderful life that relies completely on you and seeing them grow in front of your eyes each day….wow! How awesome is that?! I’ve been sitting here today, trying to picture him at 18 years old and what kind of man he has become. I quickly snap back to reality because I realize how wonderful of a boy he is now–at 18 months old.


*Yeah, that’s the look I get–like, “Mom, seriously?? Another picture??” And I just have to say, “Yeah, my Kellen-bug, just a couple hundred more pics before we’re done.”

>Another month gone by….

>Gosh, I just can’t seem to get in the hang of blogging. I try, but it seems something always takes precedent. Maybe that should be my New Year’s Resolution??

We’ve been struggling around here some. Keith’s grandmother has passed this month and we are just working on getting back into a “normal” routine. You never know how people are going to react to death and it’s been rough. All we can do is love the ones in your life and tell them that everyday. Sounds simple enough, right?

Kellen will be 18 months! this Friday and has started a new daycare this week. He brought home his first “artwork” today and I just bawled. Who would have ever imagined that a few lines scribbled on construction paper would turn me to mush!

Halloween is coming soon and I can’t wait to get Kellen dressed up. Plus, I’m curious to see if he’ll stay in his costume. He has a mind of his own and I don’t see him wanting to be in a costume, but I’m hoping for a few pictures at least.
