:( Feeling blue

I'm feeling the one's creeping up. I can't believe my itty bitty baby boy is almost one. It's touching me a little deeper than I expected. With Michael graduating and Gavin turning one~the baby years are fading. I am even more in touch because Michael was my baby...and now he's all grown up. Where did the time go.
Childbirth, babies and breastfeeding have been so special to me. Magical moments in my life. I'm sad to see them go. It's so black and white now that Jim's had the Vas. No more babies:(
Here are a few pics of last year's miraculous moment in our lifetime:

What a month we've been having!
This is a busy month with Michael's graduation, Gavin's first birthday, and Michael's birthday. We definately didn't need any unexpected crisis'~but as usual, we got one!
Jim was running errands last Monday and at a stoplight. A car plowed~never applied brakes while going 50~into him. He is okay, but car accidents cause havoc in regular day to day lives. Our car is repairable, but has almost 9000 in damage. It will be out next week. IT's just so hard to fit everything in when working and caring for a family.
I'm so thankful that Jim is okay and that noone else was in the car. Life is so fleeting and this could have been so bad. The other driver did not fare as well.
Moving on to Birthday's!

And we're off...

In so many ways! We are about to drive nine hours to Marfa, Texas. Michael is graduating and since he decided to skip town and finish high school in BFE~we're going all the way across Texas to watch him walk the stage. I can't believe he's graduating from High School.
We're embarking on a whole new chapter~College! Michael has been accepted toTexas Tech, is on the waiting list at A&M and will hopefully get an acceptance from UNT shortly. He's in a funk because he really doesn't want to graduate and I'm right there with him. It's so hard to think of him out on his own.
We're taking our first LOOOONNG car drive with a two and a half year old and an 11 month old. This will be a wild weekend! We are leaving in the middle of the night, so pray for sleeping babies. The ride home will be during the day, how many songs can I sing before I lose my mind...
