One, Two Three ........

My little guy the other day was totally grumpy, we had had a bad night so I wasn't really thinking much about it until he opened his little mouth and there it was number three. That is the third tooth was just beginning to poke through. All of a sudden a light dawned on my as I realised why the night had been so bad and the morning to for that matter. We should soon be counting to four and the grumpy baby continues and a forth budge is there showing another little white spot of the tooth ready to burst through.

I Finally Get It!!

As I watch my little guy flap his arms in excitement at the world around him or a funny face from Daddy, as I watch him wobble on his legs as he stands holding on to my hands, I finally get it! I finally understand that when my mummy talks to me she doesn't always see the 20 something women but that little girl that lay in her arms, that gave her a first smile all those years ago. Just like in 20 years time when my son walks through the door with a tattoo or something which makes me want to scream, or a girlfriend that is soon to be a part of the family, I won't see the young man I will see the little boy I held in my arms, got up with a nursed two - three times a night, a boy that flapped his arms when you smiled and bounced on my knee. As we all know that from now on until the end of time he will always be my little boy!

How did we do it???

As I watch my little guy cling for dear life on my hands as he wobbles about on his very unstable legs it makes me wonder how we ever manage to walk. When you start to think about the logistics of standing never mind walking I am amazed. Carrying all that weight on those two tiny things called feet and then on top of that you need to move without falling flat on your face. I find how all those muscles work and your brain sending all those signals to them as they quickly adjust amazing. God really did have to know what he was doing when he created man, or any other animal in fact. My little guy can now do a wobbly walk as you stand in front and hold his hands but anything else comes to a crashing end. We really do taking walking for granted forgetting how amazing it really is!!

Happy New Year!

The holidays are coming to an end and a new year has begun. My little guy has celebrated Christmas with his second tooth. So at the beginning of 2009 we have our two front teeth. OK not quite for Christmas but New Year at least. We also celebrated the holidays with a trip to the doctors for that wonder of wonders the NINE month appointment, I truly cannot believe my little boy is that old. We are pleased to say that he is still growing and has gained weight and also to keep in the family tradition has an extra large head.

All in all it has been a great Christmas and I cannot wait to see what 2009 has in store for the three of us!!
