This is the face I got when I told my husband I wanted to go to Africa for 9 days. While he so wonderfully stayed here. With our boys. And went to work.
This is what he threatened me with if he said 'yes' if anything went wrong while I was gone (all the crazy stuff happens when the significant other leaves town. always. don't tell him that until my plane has taken off, though.)

Ok, this is the face that I love and that has totally supported my trip to the Village of Hope. He is A-MAZING. This is the face that has the kind of love that lets the primary caretaker of your two little babies go to another country for almost 2 weeks and does everything he can to make it happen for you.

This is the face of the 2 year old that is going to be a quite sad when he realizes he's not actually going on the big plane too.
This is the face of the 9 month old that will never remember that his mommy wasn't at his church baby dedication because she was visiting orphans in Ghana. Maybe if he does remember he'll know his mommy hates that part, but I dedicate him every day.
....he better not walk while I'm gone either.
My husband is quite awesome, and these boys will love having so much time with him. But, he might appreciate some of you checking in on him to make sure everyone is still sane come next week.

See...they have a blast together. They'll be just fine!

A much needed boost

I have two kids now, yes, but THIS was still a nice feeling of knowing we're not alone in this 'motherhood' thing!

9 Months

Simon turned 9 months on Wednesday. I say this every month, but I can't believe he is so old already! I love those teeth!
He is still super sweet, giggly, and smiley.
He could care less about his 'baby' toys, and only wants to play with Henson's stuff. So basically they both play with cars all day long. Being the second time around, though, I already know all the names of all the cool trucks, cars, and construction vehicles. Simon is so blessed.
Simon is also getting longer and leaner now that he's much more mobile. His stat %s have lessened slightly, but he's still really long. He's cruising and even trying to let go of things and take steps. I told Lucas he has to make him stop progressing while I'm in Ghana for 9 days so I don't miss it. We're awesome parents.
He loves, loves, loves water (bath time, of course), and anytime he hears water running in any area of the house he is after it as fast as possible. If he is denied, tears follow. One of the rare times that happens.

Finally, here is the 9 month comparison.
