I have journals for each of my kids and regrettably none of them are full. Jack's isn't even touched. Maybe this is the way I can journal for them. Something I am not awesome at. So, here is the trying to be better.
Let's begin with Jack. He is one! When did that happen? I think he went from skinny little baby bird to chubby smiler overnight. I was asking Dave when that happened. We don't know. He is absolutely perfect. He is sweet and kind. He is a fantastic eater. He loves his siblings. He loves to be held. All the time. Sort of not perfect there but perfect none the less. He bit me twice today - not perfect at all. But he showed a lot of remorse after each bite. We'll see if it continues. He may have to give up the juice, which will hurt me more than him I suppose. Let's see his transformation (warning - pictures!)
It about killed me when they put the IV in the head...
First day home, Joey has remained the doting brother.
This onesie was too big on him for a month or two...
I think this was the end of summer, his dad carries him in his Bjorn often.
First of many homespun haricuts.
First professional haircut. I actually think he looks like Cam from Modern Family. But only this one.
First sugar from mom, pretty sure this wasn't the first sugar from dad.
I have lost the blogging flow. Hopefully it returns. I have missed it. My thought processes have been continually interrupted for a good year now. I have decided that this might be the only way to journal for my kids. And keep in touch with family. Let's hope that for my kids' sake I can be consistent.
