It's hard to believe that another new year is upon us already. As I changed Cullen's first diaper of the new year, I realized that he is experiencing his third calendar year. He's not quite fourteen months old, but he's been around for 2009, 2010, and now 2011. Wow.
He sure seems like a little boy these days. He's wearing little boy shoes. He has a little boy haircut. He runs like a little boy. He laughs like a little boy. Watching him grow makes me think about how much I want another baby. It also makes me think about how much I want to just enjoy Cullen forever. We'll see how that one turns out.
New Year's was low key and perfect. We invited the neighbors over, we set off some fireworks, and we enjoyed a nice dinner at home. I loved spending that time with my little family. It reminds me how blessed we really are.
This week, we're preparing for our next big road trip. We'll be leaving on Thursday morning for Birmingham to say our final goodbyes to my grandmother. My heart is breaking with the idea of it. I wish we didn't have to make this trip, and I wish she wasn't gone. Luckily, I'll always have memories.
