Baby to Boy

Thank you for all your kind emails as so many of you have been checking in on me. We're still here! My MBA program started up again, this fall. Between homework and a promotion at work, I'm barely treading water and fighting the urge to quit school - I'm too close to the finish line.

Blogging has taken a back to seat to my thesis and class work, but I'll come back.

Ty is exceptional. Just when I think my favorite month of him just passed, a new one comes along. I love the independent spirit that is emerging. He knows just want he wants and doesn't let boundaries hold him back (my kind of man). His ability to comprehend what we're saying without the ability to talk back, astounds me. I love the proudness in his eyes at locking his blocks together or hitting the golf ball with his club (Daddy's doing!) I love the sing-songy way he says "no-no-no-no-no" or "uh-oh" when something falls on the floor. I love that even though he knows many animal sounds, he insists they all say "moo" when he actually sees one in real life. I love that he can eat as many sliders as I can and that he has Arsenio Hall's "hoo, hoo, hoo" perfected - arm and all.

I'll leave you with a few impromptu pictures after Ty's first barber shop haircut, this weekend. It instantly took him from baby to boy...


Love this kid.

  13. Blogging has taken a backseat for me as well but I'm stopping in to see how y'all are doing! Sometimes I think of you and your family throughout my day (funny how that is with bloggers, right?! We never meet but somehow we remember one another and pray for one another in our day). Ty DOES look like such a big boy with his haircut!!!

  14. Keep going in school! You are a strong woman. I was the mom who commented awhile back about barbers. I hope you had a good experience and your son is beautiful! I pray the Lord adds to your family as that is your hearts desire. I don't blog and have terrible computer skills and little time to learn. I enjoy being able to comment anyway here (although I understand why some don't allow) thank you. God bless. You are an inspiration and a Godly example to me!
