If you can believe it my boy is 18 months old.
what the crazy?!
How did he go from this:
Well, I'm a bit hormonal (i've got crazy stuff going on inside of me), but I really think its because he is my BABY and I worked so hard and so long to have a baby and now that time is GONE! It just up and zipped past us while we weren't sleeping and busy going to doctors appointments. So unfair!
I am bound and determined to keep remembering how fun he is to distract myself from being sad.
At 18 months Nash:

*nothing makes nash happier than going outside with his papa wight and looking at airplanes.
*he gets to meet his uncle joe for the first time EVER in just 12 days!! we've been working really hard and he now knows joes face and name. Hopefully he will "perform" at the airport.
*anything music makes him happy!! every night he asks for his music to be on (its piano music) and he absolutely loves the hot dog dance at the end of mickey mouse clubhouse.
*he loves his blocks, and has to have ALL of them out while playing.

I love you so much my Nash. Remember always, you were what I prayed and pleaded for. God gave me you. And for that, I will be forever grateful. You filled the cracks in my heart that I didn't even know existed. I cant wait to see what the future holds for you!
