Getting BIG

Joshua is 4.5 months and getting so big (literally.) I went through his closet and rearranged his clothes…again. I feel like it was just a few days ago when I was putting hangers on his newborn outfits and storing away the 6+ months clothes in baskets. Well, my newborn is gone. *Sigh.* So I bagged up all the newborn up to 3 month outfits and put them out in storage. (Just in case the next baby is a boy we gotta hang on to all these brand new, only been worn a couple of times outfits.) I then hung up all the 3-6 month outfits. It is kind of fun because Joshua basically got a new wardrobe today! A whole new set of adorable clothes that I get to dress him up in. I don’t care what anyone says, boy clothes are just as cute as girl clothes when they are miniture size for baby birds. 🙂

We also reached a milestone today. Joshua rolled over. All the way. From his back to his belly. All by himself. This morning after some cuddling I laid Joshua down on the floor and just like that he rolled over. It was a good thing I was looking or I would have missed it, it was that fast. I couldn’t help my excitement which got Joshua laughing and kicking his feet really fast just because I was so excited. I ran into the bedroom and told Nathan, who was still sleeping but I didn’t think twice about waking him up because I was that excited.

It was a good day.

And since I’m writing about today I have to mention that 7 years ago today I told Nathan I was ready to commit to him. It is a long story but the gist of it is that I made Nathan work pretty hard for my heart. Finally, after quite awhile of hanging out as friends he told me that either I commit to being his girlfriend exclusively or we were done hanging out. Well, at first I hesitated and then immediately regretted my decision so the next day, on June 22, 2005, I went to his house and asked him if I could change my answer.

7 years later here we are happily married with a mortgage, a fur child, and the most precious little boy who is a combination of the two of us. (Oh, and a bass boat. Nathan wouldn’t want me to forget to mention we have a bass boat!)
