With Dylan I worked as a temp. sitting at a desk and answered phones, easy-schmeezy. This time around I am on my feet all. day. long. and it wears me out! With Dylan I could come home and chill. This time around I'm entertaining Dylan, cooking dinner (yes, I cooked 1st time but with it only being the 2 of us, I could get by with sandwiches or cereal for dinner), grading, planning, etc. So this time around is just different. I haven't had time to read and prepare. But come Friday...it's time!
So pray that these next 3 days go by fast, because I am ready to have some good quality time with my 1st born and to prepare for my 2nd! CRAZY! I am going to have 2 kids!! As in plural. Children.
So, to my 2nd child. Don't ever think I don't love you as much because I didn't read every book, etc. But trust me (I'm a 2nd child myself), even before you are born, you are competing for time and energy from your parents. I kid. My parents did a great job making all of us feel special :) You are already my sweet Miles David and I can seriously hardly wait for you to be here!!! I wonder all the time what your unique little personality will be like. Will you be like your brother? or completely your own person? Lord knows he loves you already! He talks to you, kisses you, and asks TONS of questions about you, and does this strange little hug - I'll let your Uncle Lance show you one day what that is. The sonographer says you don't have much hair, but will you look anything like your older brother? (He's pretty cute so that is fine by me), but I know that you have good genes so whatever you look like you'll be handsome! I'll cry when you are born because I'm a crier, will you be like me, or more like your Dad who cries just not at the drop of a hat. Will you be Mr. Independent? I know I've always been and your Dad is, and Dylan is too, so likely you will be too, which will put your in time-out sometimes :), I love you Miles!
Now I'm just rambling and it's almost 11pm...late for me. Off to bed so I can be up in 2 hours, and then 2 hours after that, and then...you get the point.

I took a ton of pictures last year of Dylan playing in the sprinkler (Playing in the sprinklings) and I still love them, so the other night I got the camera out to capture once again the pure joy that he exudes while playing in water. See for yourself…
I know it is a week late but I definitely want to make sure to show my appreciation for my sweet Momma! I love you more than you know!! As I’ve grown up I am all the more appreciative of all the hard work she has always done for us! As a kid you don’t realize how hard it is to raise a family, work full-time, run to practices, cook dinner, clean house, the list goes on-and-on. Clearly, I now know how hard that all is, and so I’m soo appreciative of all the sacrifices she’s made for me over the years. Love you Momma Sue!
I also have a fantastic Mother-in-law who is always making sure we are taken care of! So I am super appreciative of her as well! For some reason at our lunch we didn’t take any pictures with all the Moms! But thank you Liz for all you do!
The reason I’m a Mom! I love this little boy more than words can express. Really, I’ve typed the words to express my love but they don’t seem enough. I love you Dylan Wayne and I can’t hardly wait to add another sweet little boy to our family.
