My 9-month reflection

Zachary is 9 months old today. Wow. How did that happen? I must have blinked. Dammit! I knew I shouldn't have blinked!! And what the hell happened to Alexandria?! She's 3 1/2!!

As much as it's frustrating, as much as it's exhausting, as much as you want to scream (and sometimes do), as much as you want to bang your head against the wall, it's all pretty awesome, too.

I had my "yup, this is pretty wonderful" moment today. I was sitting in the recliner with a sleeping Zach curled up on my chest, crooked in one arm. Alexandria crawled up, found a place nestled under my other arm and snuggled right in beside me while she watched a movie. That's a pretty cool feeling. I wish someone had been able to snap a picture of that perfect moment. I'm afraid to blink again.
