Finally Able to Sit in Comfort

When Grady's parents babysat Owen last weekend, they broke one of our kitchen chairs - for those of you who don't know, our table and chairs SUCK! So today his mom phoned and described this table to me and asked me if we would like it? It's a thousand times better (and nicer) than the one we have now and did I mention we're living on ONE income these days, so purchasing a new table on our own isn't in the cards for the next two or three years! So compliments of Sandy and Suzie we have a whole new dining set! Can't wait to pick it up at the end of the month.

p.s. thats my mom in the green, grady's in the white!
And in the first picture, the chair is not lop-sided, its in my parents gravel driveway.....just to clear it up!

A year has come and gone

Our baby is a baby no more. Toddler-like really. I love it (and secretly hate it a little). He is so awesome, full of smiles and laughs. Walking around like crazy, "talking" like crazy, steam-rolling the cats, sleeping with a stuffed bear, going to daycare, brushing his teeth, climbing on the furniture...I really am happy, but a little sad too. These feelings make us both want another baby, but our plates are too full right now. We are enjoying every moment with Owen, I know I need to take it all in, because soon, he will be two, then three, then four, then sixteen, then twenty, then married, then moving away.....AHHH slow down Patricia......sniff, sniff. How do other mom's handle this? I just want to squeeze my boy all day long and never let go!
Some photos to reflect.....
