They grow so fast...

It's Joey's first birthday and I started to cry a little when I lifted him out of his crib this morning.  He was six weeks premature and seemed so fragile and frail when he was born and had to lay in the isolette for days.  I wasn't even allowed to really hold him.  

I look at him now and he's so strong and tough.  He has to be, with Andy beating him up all the time.  He's walking now-- only a few steps at a time but he does it.  He's an eating machine and I've never seen him turn anything down.  He babbles and is just so happy and smiley all the time.  He's an absolute angel. 

I am so impressed with his development and his health and his growth.  He's doing things sooner than Andy did and right on target for his actual age, not his adjusted age.  He hasn't been sick all the time the way Andy was because he's never been in daycare. I think he's had a cold, once. 

He's just such a wonderful baby, inquisitive and happy.  

I can't believe he's one.

It's been good, but the financial strain is difficult for everyone so it's time for me to find a new job. It makes me sad, but I know it's in the best interests of the kids in the long run.
