I must admit that I am not good at all keeping up with this blog. The months have seemed to fly by since I posted about the birth of our son, Chaz. He is now 9 months old. I do not know where the time went. Although I have tried to savor every moment of his precious life, it seems to go flying past me. I look at his newborn pictures and wish I had stamped the image of him at that age in my mind more than I did. I mean, I was paying attention! He is just growing way to fast.
I enjoy being a stay at home mom. I love taking care of my son. I would not have it any other way. The one thing that is the hardest is being here alone a lot since we only have one car. I try not to think about it, but there are times that it gets the better of me. I guess there are some times that I just wish I had some interaction with other people.
At this stage in the life of Chaz, he is trying to cut teeth. He slobbers, chews and fusses at times, and still no teeth! He rolls around all over the floor and will push himself forward with his feet. Crawling is coming soon, I'm sure. He says "dada" (much to the delight of his father). He said "Mama" a few times when he was younger. I think it was just a trick though! He has not said it since.
I look at my son and I am so thankful for him. God knew just what I needed at this point in my life. I did not know I needed him until God gave us him. Isn't it funny how we seem to have our lives all planned out and then realize that we are not the ones that should do the planning? It is up to us to follow the plan [that God gives us].
