Eh what the heck. First few days of fall, the weather is crisp, and the wee-one was playing outside this morning, some of these were park pictures, some were just back yard pictures, or what's left of it. Our new douche-bag neighbor chopped down a ton of 'his' trees, which were over 40 feet tall. As you can imagine they were so tall and lush they naturally shaded our yard, garage, and drive-way so I'd grown fond and very accustomed to them. But they are his trees to chop down as he likes, though they were not hurting anyone. Not like they took 50 yrs to grow or anything, so let's just destroy them for NO good reason. Now we need black-out curtains, YEAH! Oh and tinted windows on my new car. ;-) BUT I digress, here's some pictures in my VERY sunny yard now, which highlights my neighbors hideous house and yard and his NINE work vehicles which he parks there, of my cute kid playing on a crisp fall morning ;-)

And this year is no different!  It was THREE year ago today (sad that I know this) that a little cell began to divide and divide and divide over and over and over...after years of infertility a miracle came to life! Seven months later, that miracle we named William would be welcomed to the world (a tad bit early!) after a very tumultreous pregnancy. 

Now that little cell that came into being three years ago today is 28 months old, wreacking havoc, and sadly has a late-summer cold at the moment. So this mom is dealing with snot and sneezes and other bodily "ewwws" at the moment. He's Thomas The Train obssesed, loves Toy Story 3, Shrek, and Rio, and also loves his flash cards and online ABC learning programs. He still enjoys going to Gymboree weekly and playing with my iPhone!

He's a very picky eater who's practically a "Wheatatarian" as that's his staple! He does enjoy most meats but only eats meat maybe two days a week. Sadly we discovered a few months back he's lactose intolerant so we spend a FORTUNE on lactose free milk. He recently decided that he now LOVES pizza (maybe because he just learned that word this week? LOL) so I think we'll have to either make it cheese free or buy vegan, and he now loves ice cream, lactose free is $6 a pint of course! ;-) He loves bread and of course all bread contains MILK so he has to eat Kosher bread and bagels only, and he won't touch a veggie or a fruit :-(

He loves dogs and cats, giving kisses and hugs, running and jumping, helping Mommy unload the dishwasher and load the dryer (thank God! LOL) and splashing in the tub with his Thomas toys. 

He's now just shy of 36 inches and around 30-31 lbs, too heavy for this Mamma to carry! His eyes are mostly green with just a few golden specks, and still sports long blond hair. His feet grew TWO sizes in a month this summer but he still fits in some 18 month clothes, mostly 24 month and swims in 2T!

Here's some more recent pictures of our little miracle preemie!

Apr. 23rd, 2012 @ 08:43 am William's 2nd birthday!
Where the party at: United States, Ohio, Miamisburg
How I'm feeling: chipperchipper
Little angel turned two on March 27, 2012. Hard to believe 2 yrs have flown by. I baked a strawberry and lemon cake and made 'sea foam' green colored butter-cream frosting along with marshmallow fondant cut outs to adorn the cake with. The party was Easter themed. I'd never worked with fondant before so I'm shocked the cake turned out so well.

He got a cedar swing set from grandpa and a train table from "Mimi" and from us. All of his friends had a great time on the swings and slide and racing trains around the table. On his actual birthday we went to the Columbus Zoo and hauled him around in a wagon, which I think he liked more than anything else. ;-)

 Two years ago, a miracle occurred. A cell began to divide over and over and over and over and over again. Today that cell is wreaking havoc all over my house.

Why I put jegging on my son is a mystery! Nearly 16 months old, he's finally walking!

 I think I can say with almost absolute certainty, that on this day, July 22, 2011, at the ripe age of 15 months, 3 weeks, and 4 days old, that William is officially...a BI-PED! :-)
