We're Less Than One Month Away!

Sigh!  I'm late posting a picture of the little man...again.  Unfortunately his monthly birth date landed right after a Chemo treatment and then the poor guy picked up a bug from somewhere :o(  He sounds horrible but at least his spirits are still good.

DH and I 'settled' for this picture -

Junior looks so grown up!  He looks like a miniature man :o)  I can't believe we're in the final countdown to his one year birthday.  Thank God I'm still here to see it.

Speaking of birthdays...DH and I are planning the big day!  We've decided to have an open house so that people can come without feeling they have to and I don't have to send out invitations and leave someone out by mistake.  Sounds like a good plan right?  LOL!  I'll let you know how it turns out.  It's too bad you all didn't live closer because you could come and celebrate with us!  I think we'll have a decent crowd.  DH and I picked up Junior's present last week and I think he's going to like it...

Junior now has eight teeth and is SO close to walking it's not even funny.  He took his first solo steps the other day but I was in the other room and missed the whole thing :o(  DH keeps saying he's going to trash the house and I think I have to agree with him.  Junior is definitely all boy and loves to play hard.  He roughhouses with Daddy all the time and all you hear is fits of giggles :o)

I've never seen a child his age so involved with books though!  He just LOVES them and wants you to read each one to him again and again and again AND again.  He follows each page and has now gotten into turning the pages by himself.  His favorite is called Baby, BOO! and if he could talk, I'm sure he'd have the whole thing memorized by now.  I know we all do ;o)  LOL!  Let's just hope he continues to love books as he grows older!

Stay tuned - I have an update about myself :o)

Oh Junior is so handsome! He reminds me of our Jacob who is now 18. He was a real blondie too. He loved, loved books too so young. Guess what? He still does!! And he is real smart. Guarantee Junior will be too.
I was praying numerous times for you today Cathey. And here you are! I will be waiting for your update.♥♥

Anne said...

Ooooh! Give him a squeeze for me please! He's just too cute for words with those dimples!! I'm so glad he is loving books and can turn the page on his own. He will be an early reader that's for sure!! Let him "write" notes to you cause scribbling is so important in emergent writing as well :D

Hugs!

WendyCarole said...

he is getting so big. Can't believe he is nearly a year old it's gone so quickly
:)

Katie said...

Oh, I notice your state has changed to relieved...I hope that means there is some good news to come!

Frances said...

What fun to be planning such a happy event. He is so sweet looking.

Prayers for continued healing.

Carol said...

I can't believe your little man will turn one in less than a month! Where has this year gone? He really has changed into a little man--I think it is the longer hair. I'm so thankful that you are reading him books and that he is loving them so much... You just can't start too early with books :) (Of course, as a librarian, I'm just a teeny bit biased!!)...

Looking forward to your news--I hope and pray it is good...

dixiesamplar said...

A year already??!! Oh my...time sure does fly by, doesn't it? He is so precious and a very handsome young man.

Jeanne said...

Oh my I can't believe almost a whole year has passed and Junior is almost one already! I love seeing his photos each month, what a joy he must be in your life.

Hoping your treatment is going as best as possible...keeping the wishes going upwards for your continued recovery!
