We knew it was coming but I didn't think it would arrive so quickly! Although it is an amazing site to see your first born run into the big world with eyes wide open, it is quite humbling to realize that they don't need you completely anymore.
As I type this Uriyah is meeting new friends and learning new things and that is what is keeping me together. I was so proud of myself as the bus slowly pulled away from the curb this morning.

Nate & I have done a great job getting our baby boy to this point if I do say so myself and now we are anxiously awaiting the send off of Aaliyah in 2012 :-)
