Noah turns 9

Have we talked about this already?  That my oldest baby turned 9 the other day.  Oh, we have?  Carry on then. 

Feeling Blue.

Well, would you looks that.  Two days shy of Thanksgiving and someone accidentally pulled the curtains off the wall.  

Just like to make everyone feel comfortable in our home.

We found this awesome futon bunk bed on Craig's List recently and just assembled it today as an early birthday present for Noah.  There is also a trundle bed underneath but we do not have a mattress for it yet.  

I found the boys snuggled together tonight playing their games.  

Tomorrow we have Noah's 9th friends birthday party.  It is also National Premie Awareness Day.  Huh.  Rock.  Star.  Boy.  Proud like fireworks bursting from my wide open chest with a great big choking sob just sitting right behind my awe struck smile.  How's that for some hyperbole?

Here we are all cozy on a back to school Tuesday following an extra long weekend.  William is fighting off a cough so we are snacking on some honey in the hopes that its immunity fighting properties will kick the shiz out of this cough and leave us alone.  

Other than at all is well on the home front.  

We are approaching a big season of celebration in our house.  Birthdays, thanksgiving, Christmas.  
Have some boys getting big over here.  For this I will do nothing other than celebrate.  And they still like to hang out with me and give me kisses at the bus stop in front of everyone like they just don't care and whatever if any other little kids think anything of it.  

Oh, and Noah got all sneaky the other day and posted to my Facebook update "My Mom is ossem."  He also scheduled some playground time for the two if us into my calendar .  So, there's that.  

A first time for everything

So, this is what's been going on around here over the past few days.  A fall on the playground, trip to the walk in for an x-ray, and a follow up trip the next day to the orthopedist for a cast.  What's new with you?

4 year old William

Me and my 8 year old boy.

Ahh!  I used to blog.  Well, imagine that.  Truth be told, I had mostly forgotten about this funny little place.  Up until tonight again for some reason.  I don't know, growing pain stuff, maybe.  Mine.  Anyway, I thought to stop back.  And what a treat to look at these old pictures!  I think I may just start stopping by here and jotting down some thoughts again, for myself, mostly.  And my fellas.  I like the idea of this being a record of sorts for my boys, of our life together.  Our fabulous, beautiful, colorful, sometimes crazy life.  I still love them like it takes my breath away.  Some things never change.
