Some days....

Some days I can't believe that you're not here with me.

Some days I miss you more than I thought was still possible.

Some days I find my mind still wanders to you.  I wonder who you'd look like, what you would be doing now.

Some days I wonder if you were meant to be.

Some days life seems normal...almost.

But every day, I miss you more.  Though I may not think of you as often, I am reminded of you every time I look in your brother's face.

I love you.  Happy 25 months sweet Addie.  You are always and forever in my heart.

2 months old!

Seriously?!  My baby boy is 2 months old?!  Man, where has the time gone...soon I'll be heading back to work and missing out on all the cute things he does every day.  Oh how I wish I could stay home, or at least cut my hours back.  One day maybe...

Josh made his first road trip in August.  We went to a Thompson family reunion in western Kentucky.  He did surprisingly well.  We broke the 11 hour trip into 2 days.  Thankfully he slept most of the time.  He also went camping for the first time over Labor Day weekend.  Looks like he's fitting in just fine.  He likes the outdoors just as much as we do.

He's been smiling reactively since about 4 weeks old.  Love his smile!  He's got his Daddy's one dimple (same cheek and everything) although he may end up having 2.  Its hard to tell with those chubby cheeks.

He's been "cooing" too, since about 6 or 7 weeks.  I have cooing in quotes because it's not the quintessential coo that everyone knows.  It sounds more like "oooooohhhhh" and he makes an "o" face (his lips form an "o").

He also kind of giggles.  I can't quite explain the sound but I love it.  He gets excited, legs kicking and everything, and makes this noise. 

He LOVES his play mat.  He usually spends an hour a day just kicking and batting at the stuff above his head.

Here's just a few pics of my sweet boy.  Ugh, I still can't believe he's mine sometimes!

Happy 2nd Birthday little butterfly

So, here it is...your second birthday.  How can it be 2 years already.  It seems like yesterday that I last saw your chubby little face.  There's so much I want to say, but I don't have the words...

I miss you.  I still wonder what you'd be like today; who would you look like, what would you like to do, what would you love to eat.  I'm missing out on so much with you.  Happy birthday baby girl.  You're never forgotten.
Also, wanted to send out a huge thank you to Sarita, who never fails to remember Addie's birthday.  Thank you so much the card was beautiful!
**I'm a little late posting this...had a very eventful week.  August 27th marked Addie's 2nd birthday.  Her candle stayed lit all day to mark her special day.  We miss you!
