Wow. I don't write much anymore! Exactly one year from the last post: "Mommyness." Danny--he's our little boy--is sick. So, I saw a good deal more of last night than I particularly care to.

Things I've discovered: William Shatner is a very good author. Snot CAN continue to run ALL DAY! Post-partum depression is more recognizable for the victim when it's over. Friends are difficult to keep up with. Baby fever doesn't stop after you've had one. I hoped for a different "change." A new house doesn't come with the required repairmen... and "new" doesn't mean "perfect." It's even harder to lose baby weight. Your own child's laughing is the most contagious. Growing in the Lord is more painful and enjoyable than anything else. The same job can offer new crises every week.

Our Little Buddy will be 1 on June 1st. A year really can fly by. I've learned so much more than I can ever hope to write down. He's taught me so much about life and living. I try to enjoy the littler things. I try to take time to see everything from a different perspective. It's humbling to realize that another human being relies on you for everything from feeding to changing to teaching and playing. And it makes me feel important to know that Dan looks to ME for knowledge...at least for now. I finally know everything, but find that it feels a lot like nothing...
