I'll have it forever...

October 2009 was when I started blogging...
started by accident really...
I wanted to help my sister figure out how to do it.
 
Here I am, 4 years later, with so many memories recorded that I could just sit hear reading our lives with a box of Kleenex. 
If my friend Shelby was here...she'd supply the Kleenex.
 
Here we were,
Rocco was just a babe.
 
 
 
 
 
Now, he's the BIG brother.
Teaching the lil' guys everything he knows. 
He's always smiling, and constantly talking our ears off.
 
 
He's helpful & joyful.
 
So much I didn't know about him back then.


& Bo
 
 
I didn't know he would be the perfect combination of
STRENGTH & SWEETNESS.   
Instead of picking me flowers...
"Mom!!!  Come outside!  I picked you a tree!"
 
 
I didn't know that he'd be fussy about how his hair looked.
I didn't know how he would stick his chest out & stand up extra tall with twinkling eyes when he was proud of himself.
I just didn't know.
 
 
I knew Annie the best when I started blogging.
I know every inch of her heart...cause she's me.
But I didn't know she'd end up touching
people's hearts, reaching many in a magazine
& in just a few short years she'd have her own blog.
 
 
I didn't know what a little lady she'd be.
 
 
Back then...
I had NO IDEA I'd have 5 kids.
 
I'm still in shock.
 
& I didn't know how quickly time would fly.
 
 
Since their childhood is slipping away far faster
than this Mama's heart can handle I knew it was time
 to get some pictures by my favorite photographer, 
I knew she'd be able to capture their childhood. 
 
And she did :)


 
Thanks Jessie for giving me a little bit of their childhood...forever.
(Now I need that Kleenex again )

I read about Rocco's pumpkin in the last post! Too cute!
A couple of weeks ago, at BSF, I was in his class and we became friends! He is a very sweet little guy!We had the rubber band bracelets in the same colors and he said his sister made it for him. He gave it away that day to a little girl in class.
Warmly,
deb

Oh wow now I need my box of tissues.
I have loved you and your family since the first day I found you out here in this world of blogging.
It's amazing how fast all your sweet babies are growing up.
I can't believe that Annie had started her own blog. I am going there now. haha
Love ya
Maggie
