This is a retread from when The Baby was just two (2/27/09) Today he is sick in bed, for Christmas-how terrible is that? Poor little dude. So, I thought I’d remind everyone how this little person changed our life-because not much has changed, he is older now, but he is still the light in our world.
There was no drama surrounding the birth of Baby G. My mom had passed away two years prior. The Husband had a job he loved. My new business was pretty stable and we were finally not moving. We thought this was our chance to experience normal newborn baby stuff.
G. had other plans. He brought his own drama. There was nothing terrible, just a lot of little things that continuously had us running. He’s had more doctor appointments, surgeries, ER visits and prescriptions than both our other kids combined. He also took colic to a whole new level. We got our first full night of sleep the day after his second birthday and so far it’s been an isolated incident.
Thank God G is cute. I know I’m his mom, and you’ve heard this before, but this kid is really cute. He talks like a 5 year old, and has been since he was about 16 months. He quotes lines from movies, sings songs word for word and dances like no other two year old around. He has the bluest eyes you’ve ever seen. People stop us when we’re out to marvel at him. I say all of this not to brag, but to point out that there is a plan for everything. Early on, G the person was not so cute to his parents, who were totally sleep deprived, broke from medical bills and just generally cranky. So he was made cute to attract other people who would remind his parents how lucky they really are.
