I just re-discovered my LiveJournal with the last post of 2007. I can’t believe it’s still there, untouched and just like I left it 5 years ago. I remembered my password which surprises me since I can’t seem to remember anything without writing it down (oh old age, gotta love it)! It’s so amazing to look back on a whole other life that is entirely different than the one I live now, almost like a stranger peering into someone else’s life. I’m so thankful I documented it though and got a kick out of looking at the old pictures and stories I shared. My oldest was 4 and my youngest had just turned 2 when I stopped and now they are 10 and 7.
One of the stories I shared was when my oldest introduced his brother to a new friend at the park: “This is my friend, brother.”
Another was buying him his Halloween costume and him only wanting to be referred to as “Yaya T-Rex” (he couldn’t say his name, Isaiah). Then for the next 23 nights he thought it was Halloween!
I thanked Hyland Teething Tablets for being a godsend for Jaden’s teething and how I was thankful for when he started only waking up 1x during the night.
I also documented Jaden’s first hair cut and that Isaiah referred to his curls, “Jaden has girl hair!” I remember his hair cut, all his curls gone and how he know looked like a big boy.
Also, Isaiah liked to sing “Twinkle, Twinkle little star like a donut in the sky” just to crack himself up. Isaiah and I singing “He’s got the whole world in his hands”and other bible songs while Jaden danced and bobbed his head like a rockstar.
So tonight as Isaiah and I are reading the old posts, he looks at me and says: ”Thanks Mom, for writing all this stuff!” Makes me realize that I really do want to blog more like I had, documenting all the times we share and important stories to look back on. :-)
