His voice is music to my ears!

Xander has been such a late bloomer, he only JUST started talking this summer at 4 years old. I can't tell you how I worried, w/ already having an autistic child...although he showed no other symptoms and seemed to understand and follow commands unlike my older son, it's impossible for a mother not to worry when something isn't quite right with their child. Now that he is starting to talk hearing him is music to this mama's ears. Today he proudly showed me his homework, and told me how you make a D, w/ a stick down then you go back up and you make a big fat belly! I said who taught you that, he said My cheacher (teacher) taught me that, that's what her said. It's so neat to hear him speak in sentences and sponanously tell me about his day (something Isaiah still rarely can do). I told him how great his homework looked, and what a good job he did, to which he replied THANKS MOM! and gave me a great big hug...With Tierra I really took having a conversation with her for granted, it's such a special thing to be able to do with your child, I really treasure it now.

Does anyone ever feel bored w/ life? In my line of work, I know how precious life is, and I know if can change in the blink of an eye, and I know not to take it for granted and not to waste a single day...but KNOWING all of that and applying all of that are two different things. I just feel so bored with life. Whenever anyone asks me what's new, I cringe...it just seems like nothing's ever new and nothing ever changes. I wake up take care of the kids and go to work. Seriously same crap different day. I feel so guilty I feel like life is passing me by. I don't know how to get out of this slump, how do I bring some excitement into my life? Any ideas???

Great News!!!!

FINALLY, some good news on my Grandma, she saw the oncologist today, and because they caught the cancer so early they are able to get away with just doing a lumpectomy. They dont believe she'll even need radiation or anything. Sounds like it will be a nice simple procedure and she'll be fine THANK YOU LORD!!!!!!
