Snow and Neal Updates

So, it is suppose to start snowing tomorrow night through Sat night. They at first said that it wouldn't be a lot. Then they said we will get about 4 to 7 inches. Now they are saying 5 to 8 inches. Only tomorrow will tell what will happen.

For the past week or two Neal has been sick. Just a cold though. Has the runny nose, so so sleepy, and boy has he been cranky. In the  midst of all of this he got another tooth. We are now at 7 total. I'm sure in a few days he will have 8 because he has been getting them two at a time. He has been getting a bit more brave and is starting to let go of the furniture while standing. He does pretty good sometimes and others not so great. We are working with him and I almost can't wait for him to start walking.

R.I.P Brandon Grimm

Last night at about 1am there was a really back car accident just up the road from my house. 3 people were involved, 2 males and 1 female. One person was ejected from the vehicle (one of the males), the female was pinned between the car and a tree. She was the one who called 911. The other male was trapped in the car. Brandon was D.O.A (aka Dead on Arrival). The female, who was his girlfriend, and the other male was rushed by helicopter to MCV in Richmond, VA. Although I did not personally know these three, it makes me very sad. I went to school with all three of them. Brandon graduated in 08, his girlfriend in 09, and the other male in 08. I graduated in 07. I remember seeing Brandon in the halls and in Wal-Mart where I use to work. I'm sending prayers to his family. His uncle is a fireman for our fire department. My prayers are also going out to the females and the other males families. One is doing ok while the other is in critical care. I left the other two names out because I did not feel it would be best considering what state they are in right now. I was up when this happened and I listened to all of the transmission that came across the scanner for this accident. It really has me upset.

It's Been awhile

I can't remember the last time I was on here.. I can't remember if it was before or after Christmas. lol. Well Neal is 9 months old now. A few things have happened in the past week or so. Neal has been saying mama. Not often but he still says it. The other day he was on his knees pushing a diaper box across the living room. It was too cute and I wish I could have gotten a picture but by the time I had thought of it he had already stopped playing with the box. ALSO! I am so proud of my little man. He is turning into a toddler. lol He is very quickly leaving behind that baby stage. Yesterday, Jan. 8, 2010, He stood on his own without holding onto something! I was blown away lol. I knew it was coming but I didn't know when. I was so happy to see him do this on his own. I hope to work on it some more to where he will be doing this for long periods of time. Well.. I think thats all I am going to update for the moment. I will try to update more often. Have a good week everyone!
