Bring Back my Baby!

At this very time of day two years ago, I was between the sheets, wearing something flimsy and backless, with my husband beside me. But that's not as fun as it sounds, because they were hospital sheets, and the "flimsy" and "backless" I speak of was one of those paper-thin hospital gowns that could barely wrap around my huge pregnant ass. That's right: I was in labor. (A few hours later, I would peck out this post on my iPhone. Now that's dedicated blogging, y'all.)

Today is my littlest baby boy's second birthday. Two years have gone by WAY too fast, haven't they? I mean, some of you have been around since I was pregnant with him. Doesn't seem like two years ago, does it? Our Coby has turned into a heart-meltingly sweet, jaw-droppingly daredevil-ish little man - who can hold his own against his big brothers and charm anyone with his big brown eyes and impish grin.

I made him a special video for his birthday, and I shed a few tears as I looked through photos of my baby who isn't so babyish any more.

Thanks for being a part of these two wonderful years, everyone. And to Coby? Stop growing up so fast.



  1. Happy Birthday, Coby!!!!!

  2. What a great video! Happy Birthday to your 'lil dude. I just have one do you keep your kitchen counters so clean & clear? Wow.

    aww, that was so sweet! Love all the pics of him with your sweet old dog!! *tear* OMG, I almost had a heart attack when you said it was time to have another baby, thought maybe you had a little announcement~! phew!

  4. ahhhh, so, sweet! He is so special, and I have been around before that little school age boy was just a "wish" - I have loved seeing all these moments! You have a beautiful family!

    And I say YES, you have your figure back, go for that new baby!

  5. I have been reading you since In the Wire! I think Colin was like 2, maybe not even that old yet. I can't believe how big Coby is. He's just growing more and more handsome each day. Thank you for sharing him with all of us.

  6. I would have dropped to the floor if there was a positive pregnancy test at the end of the video, lol!

    Happiest Birthday to that little man!

  7. Awww.....what a sweet video! It does seem like he's grown up really fast....probably because he has two big brothers teaching him everything they know! Give him a birthday hug from his Mimi!

  8. Awww, happy, happy birthday to your little sweetie. It goes by too fast, doesn't it?

  9. he is so cute!! I wish I could keep mine as babies too!


  10. The video won't load for me. Boo. But I was around when you were pregnant with him and no it does NOT seem like two years have passed. He is supposed to be that little infant cuddled up in your lap as you blog still.

  11. Happy Birthday Coby!!!!!

    And even though there was a "just kidding" at the end of that video, I think deep down, you weren't 100% kidding... LOL!
