How Cute!

One Year (and a little bit!)

So, a while back, Rebecca took TJ's one year pics. Ok, he was actually a few months older than a year because it took that long for us to work out our schedules, but whatever! I put pretty much all of the pics on Facebook, but here are a few of my favs!

So, I could have put pretty much all of the 77 pics I got up, but I stopped myself. I showed restraint. I didn't want you to get bored. I understand not everyone has the same affinity for TJ that I do! LOL!

What the Crap?

Ok, so I put a new post on here, but for some reason it showed up a few posts down. Check it out. Its called This is Me. I'm really hating my computer right now.

So, I finally figured out pics for one of the blogs I've been working on and when I went to put the picture in, THE WHOLE BLOG ERASED ITSELF FOR NO GOOD REASON! I am SO frustrated! I guess that just means you'll have to wait a little longer.

How Do I Love Thee...

In honor of my honey's birthday, here is a list of (some of ) the reasons I would be lost without him.

1. TJ adores you. More than me usually, and while that sometimes makes me jealous, I really couldn't be happier that he has such a great relationship with his Daddy.

2. You take the time to explain things about cars and sports to me, even when I don't care.

3. You make me laugh. Even when I'm so mad I want to kick you, you make me laugh (making me want to kick you more!)

4. You put up with my craziness. Need I say more.

5. You let me dream.

6. You dream with me.

7. You help make my dreams a reality.

8. You have no problem talking to anybody. It truly amazes me.

9. You work so hard so that I can stay home and be with TJ.

10. You hold me when I cry, even when you don't understand why I'm crying.

11. You make me feel pretty.

12. You are so patient with me.

13. You don't understand me, but you try to.

14. You took me to see Mama Mia.

15. You let me be me.

16. You give me space to breathe.

17. You took me golfing.

18. You always want to help me be better.

19. You worry about the same things I do, usually.

20. Most importantly, you loved me when I was sure I wasn't worth loving.

I love you James! Happy Birthday!
And just because I can't be that mushy, here is one of my favorite pics of him, taken while camping this summer. And yes, he is wearing mom's flower bathing cap!

Still Breathing...Sort Of.

Just a really quick post to say I'm still alive. Crazy busy right now, but I'll post more on that later. I have a few posts typed up, I just need to find some pictures to put with them and I'm having a hard time with that right now. My brain just isn't functioning properly these days. Oh well, what can you do.
