What has Jay been up to?

I realized last night that I haven't posted much about Jay lately. It's not because we love him any less with the arrival of Dani Bean, I swear my love for that kid multiplies on a daily basis. I thought nine years ago that I could never love him more than I did when he was born. But everyday it gets bigger and better, folks!

Jay has had a pretty uneventful summer. He has been adjusting nicely to being a big brother. I took some pictures of the kids the other day and when I showed them to Micah he said you can just see in Jay's smile how much he loves Little Miss Bean.

Jay has also discovered that a cat named Lemmy might just be the best friend a kid could ever have.

Jay has had a major growth spurt this summer. I swear I put a shirt in the too little box every other day of the week. He's outgrowing clothes faster than I can buy new ones. We no longer shop in the toddler department, which makes me sad. My baby is growing up and he's just not my little baby anymore. I can't believe that in a few short months, my baby will be a decade old!

And next week, he's going to start fourth grade!! Oh my, how the time has flown. I've always heard that times goes faster the older you get and after this summer home with my kids, I believe that's true.

This amazing boy makes me happy every day! It's still hard to believe that a baby the doctors said wouldn't make it through the first night of his life is our tumbling bumbling, wickedly funny 9 year old.
