I'm Still Here

Friend, please don't mourn for me
I'm still here, though you don't see.
I'm right by your side each night and day
and within your heart I long to stay.

My body is gone but I'm always near.
I'm everything you feel, see or hear.
My spirit is free, but I'll never depart
as long as you keep me alive in your heart.

I'll never wander out of your sight-
I'm the brightest star on a summer night.
I'll never be beyond your reach-
I'm the warm moist sand when you're at the beach.

I'm the colorful leaves when fall comes around
and the pure white snow that blankets the ground.
I'm the beautiful flowers of which you're so fond,
The clear cool water in a quiet pond.

I'm the first bright blossom you'll see in the spring,
The first warm raindrop that April will bring.
I'm the first ray of light when the sun starts to shine,
and you'll see that the face in the moon is mine.

When you start thinking there's no one to love you,
you can talk to me through the Lord above you.
I'll whisper my answer through the leaves on the trees,
and you'll feel my presence in the soft summer breeze.

I'm the hot salty tears that flow when you weep
and the beautiful dreams that come while you sleep.
I'm the smile you see on a baby's face.
Just look for me, friend, I'm everyplace!

1 Fine Day....

1 year ago today, my beautiful Little Dude graced us with his presence. He broke my water at IHOP on April Fools Day and entered this world on Good Friday. His entrance was not only the most dramatic of all my children, but the scariest as well.

He is smart, funny, dramatic, shy, and such a ladies man. He knows how to get exactly what he wants and knows exactly how to throw one hell of a fit when he doesn't get it. He also knows how to get people's attention, but is so shy that when he gets their attention, he either cries or buries his face. He has been such a blessing to our family and is truly loved and adored.

For Little Dude's birthday we went to Disneyland. We spent his whole birthday weekend there and celebrated in the Happiest Place on Earth.

Ringmaster #11

Little Dude is 11 months old. He is sick today, so he has not gotten out of his pjs. At 11 months, he is crawling all over, standing up and moving along furniture, and getting into everything. He is such a smart little boy. He is still nursing, but definitly not exclusively. He loves all food, and will eat just about anything.

10 Little Fingers..10 Little Toes

Little Dude is 10 months old today! He is crawling now, and is able to get himself into a sit up position on his own. He is no longer eating baby food..he loves to eat what we eat! He loves to blow kisses and sign I love you. He is still signing for diaper change, more, and all done. But now when I ask him to say Mama..he signs for milk! lol Little Turkey. He is into everything and loves to play in the dog"s water. He still lights up when his siblings come into the room and is busy trying to keep up.
