This day feels sort of sentimental for me. In preparation for the open house, I looked through all the pictures we have taken of Boo, choosing some to put in a slide show and some to print and frame (one for each month of his life). There were about 2000 pictures of Boo in total. I narrowed the slide show down to 329. :) It was 11 minutes long. Nobody but Mama would want to sit and watch that, I suppose, but he is just too cute and I can't resist.
It is remarkable how much this little boy of ours has been through. He was so little - and so sick! Now he is a big boy, although he is still quite short for his age (still less than fifth percentile...). He is such a happy boy too. I have so much to learn from him! I am happy because he is happy, even though circumstances in his life sometimes make me sad. But he is happy (90% of the time - he is about 10% two-year-old at this point), and when he is happy, I have no choice! Isn't that a blessing?!?
I am so grateful for little Boo in my life. I couldn't possibly enumerate all ways and things he has taught me in the past two plus years (even during his pregnancy!), but having him here with S and I has been one of the greatest possible joys and learning experiences of my life.
