And just like that..... A year is almost over

Oh hey! There you are! Long time no see! Damn. I suck. Life just went ahead and got crazy on me. I wish I had something good to tell you too. But I don't. Actually, that's not true.  THIS is amazing......

Talk about busy! This guy NEVER stops moving. If his body is still, his hands are all over everything. Tapping things with his play screwdriver or banging his drumstick on a cabinet. That saying "the definition of a boy is noise with dirt on it"...... Spot on! But he's also the sweetest little guy I've ever known. He loves to snuggle. He will crawl up in your lap and bury his face in your neck and wiggle and squirm until he passes out. Then he'll sleep like an angel. I love this kid. He keeps me on my toes. 

Somebody say toes? HA HA HA!!

He loves to play with his "gog's" (dog's) things. 

Nothing gets in his way!

Sometimes you just need a minute. 

Life is good. Life is great. My heart has never been so full and my hands have never been so tender. This little guy brings out the best in me. 

It's not always easy. It's not always fun. But it is always worth it. 

This little angel will be 1 in two weeks. Somebody pinch me. Where did the time go? He's spent the last 6 weeks zooming around at top speed on all fours until a week ago when he decided it was time to give it a try on two feet. And low and behold, we have a walker. It's not always his first choice of movement but he is using it more and more and can stay up for longer and longer. 

Adjusting back to full time work has been tough. I started a new job in September and I've been working long days. It's taking a toll on all of us. But hopefully I can pull back a little at work. My priorities are always my family. Nothing is more important than Kyle's happiness. Blogging is good for my soul. So hopefully I can find myself some time to make his more of a regular thing. I do miss you all!!


  1. Omg he's already going to be a year! Time does fly by so quickly. He's adorable!

  2. Raegan says "gog" for dog too! Can't believe it's already been a year! It goes by so fast!

  3. Walking and talking!! So exciting! Can't wait to see you guys. We miss you! Also, love those toes :D

  4. I can not believe he is already almost a year old!!! What date was he born?? Maybe my lil guy will make his arrival at the same time :) I remembered it was close but didn't remember the exact date. He just keeps getting cuter!

  5. He is absolutely adorable and I love all his hair!

  6. Heidi, I love this post, especially "It's not always easy. It's not always fun. But it is always worth it". So true!!!!

  7. He is just precious!! The time goes by so fast. They always say oh they grow up so fast and you know it will happen, but then you can't believe how fast it really is. He's such a cutie!

  8. Congrats on making it to the first year! Thanks for sharing the adorable pictures and updates.
