these are my memories...
these are in no order....just random as I remembered them and wrote them down!
These are my memories of you baby....Some days the thought that there will be no more makes me wish I was with you...but then I remember your love of life and I see you all around me in every thing that use to make you happy!
you were my smallest baby...you were so tiny I had nothing to fit you and I had to send dad shopping to get you clothes so you had something to wear home from the hospital!
You used to curl up with your feet under your chin to sleep like a little ball....it used to amaze me how flexible you were....but then you always amazed me with every thing you said and did!
you were the most demanding child of the four of you....but only as far as needing to see me as long as I was in sight you were happy!
you were the first and only one to have a walker...I need some way to prop you up so I could get things done so I bought you one and put a pillow in front of you and behind you so you didn't have room to move you were only 2 months old and if I left you there you would just go off to sleep!
you only ever wanted me!...when you were sick or up set I was the only one for you!
you use to sleep down stairs with the dogs as soon as you could move you had to be down stairs
when you were 3 I had to take you to the doctor to be check out because you ate so much dog food you wouldn't eat any normal food (doctor told me if human food went through the restriction that dog food went through then half of it wouldn't be on the shelves)
the first time you got sick was when you were 8 mths old you ended up having about a hundred thousand dollars worth of test in the next 4 yrs for the doctors to tell me they had no idea what was wrong with you!
you spent almost every day on the nebulizer and never once complained...or slowed down!
you had so may blood test that the nurse was more worried than you about them and you were always so well behaved and never caused any problems.
our first major injury with you was on Easter Sunday 2003 we lived 109 kms from town at Hornet bank station and you opened up above your eye jumping on the trampoline with your cousin ( even though the rule was one at a time) this ended up with 4 stitches and a very nice scar that you loved
second and third major injuries happened with in 10 days of each other we had just moved to Bayrick 93 kms from Augathella you were playing spider man on the bunk beds and fell and broke both bones in your right fore arm ( this was when I discovered that I could do all the blood in the world but not broken bones) you never even cried we strapped you arm to a frozen water bottle and left for town expecting the ambulance to meet us some where in between but dad made it to town before it left the third was your burned hand all thank to a hot pizza and the broken arm
things you loved and wouldn't have been the same kid with out them
you loved your motor bike...a 90 cc Polaris scrambler (still lives under our house no one will every ride it like Alex did)
you loved your horse...he was a funny little Shetland pony named CoCo Pop that loved dog food as much as Alex did
you love Jack the jack Russell he was you mate and done only what you told him...but not the rest of us
you loved swimming in the troughs as dad cleaned them you would slid from one end to the other and make us drag you back up
you used to love to tell every one that you made every thing...we would go through a gate and you would say "I made that gate"....or "I made that Pivot" you used to do it because It would peeve Michael and you love to annoy him
You loved Akara and were inseparable ...all I would hear all day was "come on bubba" or "are you right bubba"
you loved Garry Weldon our Jackaroo at Bayrick and love to go in the truck with him or on the motor bike
you loved to chase the sheep on you motor bike
you loved dinosaur's cars and playdough
you loved to go roo shooting and pig chasing...but were petrified of the dead pigs and wouldn't ever have your picture taken with them unless we made you
you loved to pull faces
you loved to give Kiss and cuddles and would just curl up on the lounge with who ever was there
you always told me you loved me and I never needed to ask!
you scribbled on every wall in your bedroom at Hornet Bank with crayon and then tried to tell me it was Michael (Michael was at school)
you were so stubborn that you would go to sleep at the table with out eating your dinner if you didn't like it
you were with me when I fractured my eye socked starting the pump and cried all the way back to the dozer! you cried more than me!
you used to do donuts on your motor bike out the front of the house and it looked like a dust storm was coming
you hated shoes and never wore them....one day you went driving with dad and the jeep broke down on the Sky and Rainmore boundary and dad had to carry you all the way home because you didn't have shoes! dad learned his lesson that day...not so sure you did
you love all animals and spent all day down in the nursery with the poddies...we always had goats lambs and calves then there was the chooks and ducks
you loved school....that was a real shock to all of us we didn't think you would sit still long enough for it but you did!
you cut Akara's hair with Maddison one day
you droped chewing gum out of your mouth one day when you were leaning over the seat in the pajero and it ended up in Akara's hair and I had to cut it out
you tried to throw your chewing gum out of the window with the window socks on and got it all stuck to the window ( that was when we decided no more chewing gum )
you where throwing rocks into the air at the bus stop one morning and one hit the pajero window and smashed it (probably the only time in your life I was really cross with you)
you called KFC tag a c because you couldn't remember what it was called so we all called it that
you riped the window tint off the Pajaro window and blamed Michael
you got into everyone of Mama and poppies care one week end and turned on all the lights and window wipers ( they had a lot of cars on the farm)
you would hide in the dog kennels and share there food with them because we bought a drum for the dog food and you couldn't get it any more
if you named a poddy it was yours according to you...even thought I had to feed them
you were scared of the baby camels and screamed when it tried to get in the car with us...
Frank the cat only came to you
you had four girl friends in grade one
you were the only boy invited to a birthday party and chickened out when we got there and wanted to come home
you used to drag you school bag buy the straps instead of carrying it and broke the strap ( that was one of our jobs to do the day we lost you)
you loved Poppies pool....it was a trough that was on a hill so Alex had a shallow end...but he spent all his time in the deep end
Even when you where sick you smiled!
