The new year is approaching and it is a little bittersweet for me. 2008 was such a wonderful year for us Stromski's! Eric got promoted to Tech Sargent and Garrett Elijah was born. Eric's promotion certainly helped change his career path for the better and allowed me to be able to stay at home with Garrett . And Garrett is just the highlight of my life. The one perfect thing I have ever done! He is getting so big now, especially with all his teeth and all the crawling around he does he is such a "big boy." It makes me a little sad that he is growing so fast. Last weekend I cleaned out his closet and packed up all of his clothes that he has outgrown. I found the outfit we brought him home from the hospital in and of course that brought me to tears. I have to say a part of me is really happy that he is such a mamma's boy. I know that he needs to be more independent, and we are definitely working on that, but I love that he crawls around after me and reached out for me when I walk by.
On another note, great news... I have only a few more physical therapy sessions and then I am free! Yea, back to my life. After 4 months of this I can't wait to start back up with my mom's groups or just sit and drink a whole cup of coffee an dnot have to get reasy and run out. Garrett is in some desperate need of some socialization too.
The new year will bring us some fun and exciting adventures. With God's help I can be up to the task! I am tired just thinking about it :)
