But the biggest, most special, most wonderful (and surprising) blessing of 2009 was Knox Davis Northcutt! Born October 1st, 2009. He is healthy, beautiful, and the most chill baby in the world. Easy, peezy. And life would just not be the same without him. So that's my excuse for abandoning the blog for 2009. I was pregnant most of the year, working, and chasing after an ever-changing, extremely mobile toddler. Miles was just 14 months old when Knox was born, and let me tell you. I can sum up the entire year in one word - EXHAUSTING! All my free moments were usually spent with my feet propped up on the coffee table or soaking in a bubble bath.
Jeremy is still with Nobel and loves using his gift of woo. He's such a good dad. Miles absolutely adores him, and although Knox would smile at a robber taking the paci right out of his mouth, I know that he adores him too. That threesome is going to have their share of laughs in this lifetime, no doubt!
Miles turned 18 months old today and is our little Tazzy. Jeremy always said he wanted a boy who was into everything. Well, he's got it! Miles made a sign for his bedroom door that says, "Play Hard or Go Home!" Not really, but you'd think that was his motto. My parents and I joke that when Miles walks in a room he thinks to himself, "Seek and Destroy!" Oh, I'm sure it's just the toddler way, but he makes us laugh with his curiosity and that ornery little lift in his eyebrow as he tests the boundaries. An absolute joy though! Loves his "Daddy,""Mama," and "Bubba." 2010 is sure to be an adventure!
Here are a few more pics to catch you up!
