Where did the time go?

It is already the 27th of July and it is already 13 yrs ago that I Kyle was born...**sniff**. I can remember the day like it was yesterday.I was all excited,and then I got him home and it wasn't quite like playing house.My doll wouldn't sleep when I put him in his crib, and all he wanted to do was eat.I felt like a human milk machine.None of my friends had kids yet, and they were all off to the beach and doing their thing while I was stuck in the house trying to figure out this child that came with no manual.I remember thinking......why did I do this? It didn't help that Dave went away to school shortly after, and I was stuck home with my doll,my doll that didn't sleep, and ate 24/7.Thankfully my parents made many visits and I went to there house all the time.

Here I couldn't wait until he slept through the night, until he ate solid food, until he walked.......and now I am wondering why that all went by so fast.Why am I know hoping that he will do well in school, chose his friends carefully, stay out of trouble, when just yesterday this didn't matter.All that mattered was getting him to go 4hrs between feedings,getting him to sleep through the night.Now I wonder if he is ever going to wake up.Looking back, those moments were precious and I didn't see it at the time or enjoy it like I should of.

I am so very proud of the boy he has become and I have high hopes for his future.

Here he is acting goofy with his cool aviator glasses that he found.I'm thankful that Evan sat on them and snapped off the leg. They were driving me crazy!Not sure whose hat he has on or why?I just love him to bits!I'm so glad that he was given to me:)
