A First

Dear Andrew,

You brought tears to my eyes today! (your mama is a little emotional, but you'll learn that, don't worry!)

You have a little play mat that you love to lay it. It has all kinds of fun, bright stuff hanging down for you to look at. Yesterday I noticed that you were playing special attention to a little spider that hangs down. When I put you back down there today, I saw you reaching for Mr. Spider. I put you closer to him and you reached out to grab a toy for the first time! You have been laying there for about 30 minutes now, batting at him, smiling, cooing and laughing at him.

You are making my heart SO VERY happy!

But I am questioning if you are going to be anything like me. You are terrified of your sweet, cute little dog named Scout that even says things like, "I love you, Andrew", but you're obsessed with a spider. Great! I hate bugs.

~ I've been taking down all of your email addresses. Will probably switch to private sometime tomorrow. If you just left your email address without letting me know who you are, and there's not even a blog link for me to click and get back to you, I probably won't be adding you. Sorry! ~

Eeek! Not going for a puppy but going for the spider? That's my idea of a nightmare! Hope that isn't any indication of what his preferences will be as he gets older! :) Sorry to confuse you earlier!

Maybe he will be able to kill all the buggies for you when he gets bigger! Or maybe you just hung out with me too much while you were pregnant ;)

You gotta admit, that's an adorable little spider there!
