Everybody is different, typical is boring.


This is what I tell myself when I walk into the kitchen, and find Alex licking the floor because the feel of the smooth linoleum on his tongue pleases him. Or when I hear him growling happily behind his dark closet doors that he himself has decided is the place he wants to play, and when I ask him to come out, he closes the door in my face.

Everyone is different, typical is boring.

Other two and a half year olds are starting to get into Thomas the tank engine, and bob the builder. Shouting to the roof tops "can we fix it, yes we can!"

Its ok, everyone is different and typical is boring.

I don't ponder too much on the what if, or what could have been had that damn CREBB protein made its way to the right place, and #16 chromosome was intact.
I love Alex, he has a great sense of humor, he is easy going, he is happy, is content. Loves music, loves the outdoors, loves books, loves to sing, and dance. Really, he isn't so different. He is our Alex, and we wouldn't change a thing!

8 Months!

Happy eight months in this world Max! We LOVE YOU!
Max is Eight months old! Still sleeping through the night! Starting to eat some solids and chunks! Army crawling anywhere Alex is, and sitting up all by himself. He is adorable and fun! We love this baby so much!

It has been just over a month that we came home from the PICU, and feared Alex had a broken vertebra and would need traction. Life can change in an instant......I'm so thankful ours stayed the same. Here's to one month of Unbroken vertebra's!

Not a cloud in the sky......

Monday nights we don't have anything on the calender...............No soccer practice, baseball practice, we can stay home, and without a cloud in the sky, we can hang out outside! Play in the sandbox....................



Play catch...........











Just be together........................
























Climb on top of one another.............










There you go, a picture of the perm......Thats all you get!

And look, no tight rolling........................................

Baby Blues

I'm sad.........Why you ask? Well, its not because my 6 year old would rather make silly faces on the soccer field, than score a goal.......... Its not because instead of running to get a pass, he would rather pretend to be a soldier marching on the battle field.....see him there in the middle........
Its not because he would rather smile at my camera than steal the ball..........



Its not because my Noah had his first big sleep over with five other boys giving me very little sleep on Saturday........













Or that this handsome little guy is almost 9!!

Its not even that Max is already stealing hearts with his adorable blue eyes.........









Or that he can be fussy sometimes......


Cause he is still cute.........










I have the baby blues because my baby is growing up. He looks so big, and he has started to get into the sitting position all on his own. He is a big boy now....My baby is gone.....Ive got the baby blues.....
