It's the day before Everett's second birthday. Last year I was a little reminiscent, but this year I'm just so excited about who he has become and the relationship that we have that I can't help but smile from ear to ear. At 5:30 this evening I will be thinking about the fact that I was at my house all alone ... my husband was at the Wisconsin River with the dogs and a month before my due date, my water broke. At 10:39 tomorrow morning, as we're just getting done with Toddler Time at Monona Grove Nursery School, I'll be thinking about seeing his squished little face and tons of dark brown hair on the top of his head for the first time. After not easily getting pregnant and a devastating loss ... believe me ... I don't take being a mom lightly, and I most certainly treasure every single day. We're having a Thomas the Train birthday party for him on Saturday and this already crazy kid is going to go ballistic when he realizes that he's surrounded by that cheeky, little, blue engine. My baby is TWO ... and I love everything about that.
