The Forgotten Child

That is what I jokingly call Adrian, our nine month old son. He really isn't the forgotten child, he is too wild and crazy to even let us think about forgetting him! But none the less, sometimes I feel like we don't think of Adrian as much since Sammy was diagnosed with her brain tumor. So here is a blog all about Adrian!

Adrian is a pain in the ass in so many ways (I say that lovingly), but he is also just about the most lovable cute little thing you can imagine. He insists on sleeping in our bed with us and nurses throughout the night. When I tried to stop feeding him one night, he just stayed awake, didn't cry all night, just flat out refused to go back to sleep. We haven't tried that again. He has been rolling over both ways since he was 12 weeks old, and he started crawling when he was just barely seven months old, and today at nine months he has begun walking. He has been taking steps here and there, but now he has actually started taking 5+ steps at a time. The kid doesn't respond to "no" or he does by stopping what he is doing smiling at you and then continuing to cause trouble. I joke and say that if he was my first child, I don't know that I would have had another.

But like I said, although he can be a crazy child, he is also so lovable and cute. He is tiny, only in the 25th percentile, so to see him walk around is really quite amusing. He also is just getting all of his front teeth, and when he smiles he looks like a little jackolantern! He squeaks and grunts all the time and when we play music he dances. He is also such a little flirt; in the grocery store or doctors office, if he spots anyone he goo's and ga's and gives them big smiles until they pay attention to him! Such a big personality!

So, know you know a little more about my boy. He has been with us every step of the way through this process and although it has been hard on him and us at times, he has been such a little trooper and we are so blessed to have him in our lives!
