Little Man

I posted this last tuesday but for some reason it didn't come through....grrr

Grayson had his 4 month check up today. He'll be 5 months on Friday, so I'm a little late, but right at 4 months we were doing all his eye stuff so I'm a little behind. He is doing great and is healthy, but when I call him my little man, he is just that. He's in the 10th percentile on weight, and the 3rd percentile on height, and his head is in the 50th percentile. So basically I have a short, skinny kid with a big ole noggin. Ha!

Today I remember. I remember the loss of our first pregnancy....the baby who's due date was today. I remember the loss of our second pregnancy....the bleeding started on this this same day. I remember the worst date ever when both these horrible things converged into one big sesspool of a day.

I also remember that, although the road that brought me here sucked hard core, I am so blessed because of my little man Gray.

I remember all the little ones that those close to me have lost, and shed some tears for them today as well.

I remember also to be thankful for a great friend who remembers with me, who feels my pain again with me each time this date rolls around, and never forgets.

And I could never forget to remember to be thankful for my fabulous mom who remembers without me having to remind...and shows up at work today with flowers, a blueberry cake donut and some dunkin donuts coffee. Seriously...you may think your mom rocks. But mine kicks her tail in every way. :-)

I will never forget to remember.

Watching The Game

I came home from lunch today and found my boys doing some male bonding watching the redskins game...


Grayson had his first sleepover with my parents last night. We scored some hockey tickets and went with Sunny and Grumps into DC for a night out. We were getting back late, so since my parents hit the hay early, it just made sense for the booger to spend the night. So I armed mom with some pumped boobie milk...and some formula just to be safe...then headed out.

This is now the longest stretch of me being away from him. Up to this point I've only left him for 4-5 hours tops. This one will be 14 hours or so. I have to say it feels weird. I couldn't sleep well last night, because I kept thinking he was still in next room and I should check on him....but then remembered he's not here. Don't get me wrong...the break is fabulous. But just weird. It's almost like I don't remember life without him. Amazing how quickly that happens.

Off now to get ready and go pick up my little man. I sure do miss that sweet smile of his!

Oh...and a side note, if you are ever heading into DC....Grumps is the man to drive you! We made it from the Verizon Center to my door in 20 minutes flat! He is the man!

Mmmm Mmmm Good

You think it's been a while since I cleaned out my cupboards? I just went through my shelves and found 38 cans that have expiration dates that have passed. Um...I hate to say this but I even found one that expired in 2006. yuck! My cupboards are now empty, but it sure feels good to rid of stuff. But now I need to go shopping!
