There's a monster at the end of this post...

Nolan's weight check went great! He finally made it on to the weight chart. He is in the 7th percentile. Tuesday, he weighed 7 lbs, 4 ounces and was 19 7/8" long. He is growing so fast!

Nolan got a new cousin on Caleb's birthday. His new cousin was born by c-section October 10. He weighed 9 lbs, 9 ounces and was 22" long. It was strange to see a newborn who is big enough to eat my 1-month-old.

Every year my family has a pumpkin carving contest. All the grown-ups carve pumpkins and all the kids show off their Halloween costumes. We skipped the contest last year - something about a preemie in the hospital. This year, the contest was back. We carved the best pumpkin, but we didn't win. We demanded a recount. We'll win next year. Anyway, we dressed Nolan up in his costume. (It is VERY hard to find a costume for a 7 lb baby.) Can you guess what his is?? Give up? He's a monster!

He's even making his monster face!

He had a long day.

Tomorrow's the big day

Tomorrow would have been Caleb's first birthday.

I don't know what to say. I miss him.

I wish he was here to meet his little brother. I wish he was crawling all over the house. I wish I could see him chasing the cats. I wish I was getting the house ready for our friends and family to come over for his first birthday party. But, I'm not. He taught me so much. He made me the person I am today.

Caleb touched so many lifes. His work on earth was done. I wish it wasn't. I wish he could be here forever. I wish he was still here.

I hope they have birthday cake in Heaven. Caleb deserves to stick his head in some good sugary cake.

(While I'm typing this I'm listening Nolan sleep-farting over the baby moniter. Anyone want to change his diaper?)

Speaking of the gasman - Nolan has a weight check tomorrow. He is getting big. He has outgrown some of his up to 5lb clothes!
