Favorite LINE:  MMMM Maybe.......NO!, or Sooo you love me or what mama?  Now that I think of it I think that was the line Nick used when he asked me to marry him.  LOL!  kidding... or am I??

On the morning of April 11th, four years ago, I cried myself all the way to the labor and delivery room.  It wasn't the pain.  Maybe the sleepless weeks leading up to this day were finally catching up, but mostly, it had something to do with my first born loosing the attention monopoly she'd been running for the past 2 years and not knowing how I was going to love another kid as much as I did my first.  If you haven't had kids you won't understand this.  If you have only one...uh uh..you wont' either.  Have two or more?....Can I get an AMEN!

So he comes out with the biggest eyes I've ever seen in my life.  Totally reminded me of a new baby orangoutan...(seriously click this link...have a laugh, it's pretty dead on....yes..almost that harry too!).  BUT...I indeed loved him as much as the first....ffeeww, what a relief!

I'm feeling sort of weepy tonight, again maybe because the sleepless nights, but it's hard to believe he is getting older so quickly.  He is such a joy in my life.  If he sees something funny, he always comes to find me and to tell me word for word what happened, imitating voices and faces... the whole 9 yards.  What I love most about him is he always forgives me for my GINORMOUSE weaknesses, and short comings as a mother.  Thank you for helping me a better person for the last four years of my life, one day I'll get the hang of it.  I LOVE YOU FOXXY!  HAPPY BIRTHDAY KIDDO!
