July 26, 2009

It's been over six months since I've blogged. There's not just one reason for that... There are many. Start with the fact that I can't seem to focus long enough to sit down and do anything that takes great thought, add the fact that I'm tired all the time and mix in a dash of being paralyzed from the overwhelming amount of things I want to say.

I promised myself I'd get in bed by 11:00 tonight, so I'm not going to write a lot. I just wanted to write SOMETHING to get the ball rolling again.

Garrett is blowing our minds on a regular basis. I actually hope I have some time in the next couple of days to read my blog and see how he blew our minds in the past, but I couldn't have known all that was coming. He's not even two-years-old, and yet he's this total person. He has such a big personality, he's very particular (which I hear is a typical Virgo trait), he's warm and funny and amazingly smart. I know every mom thinks this about their kids, but I'd like to think I'm being objective. He can be a real jerk when he's tired. (See? Objectivity!)

I genuinely don't know how to get everything out; all the things I want to convey about how being Garrett's mom has changed every aspect of my life. I'll try to think about it and write again in the next day or two. I don't want to take six months off again, so I'm going to give this another go. Baby steps. That's one of things Garrett has taught me. He's also taught me how to be silly, how to find wonder in a leaf, how to do great sound effects, and how to love even deeper than I thought was possible.

Now if he could only write this blog for me. He'll probably be able to in a few months. Okay, okay... A year! (See? Objectivity!)
