So .. 17 years ago.. I get this call.. Melissa its time.. Tell her I am not getting out of bed its too early!!!
No seriously.. Lets go!! WHAT!!! ARE YOU KIDDING ME!! EEEKKKK!!!!
Schyler was born at 8:20 or something like that, He weighed 6lbs and 8 ozs and had a head full of hair. He was the ugliest baby ever.. Sorry its true, but My life would NEVER be the same. I love him more than words can ever say. He is by all accounts my first born son. People ask .. What do you mean you have a 17 year old.. ok I don't have a 17 year old but when your best friend comes to you and says I'm having a baby and can't stay at home. She moved in.. I graduated early.. We planned baby showers..We were soo excited he was coming. I really had no idea the impact he would really have. I couldn't see past the next couple of months much less 17 years down the road.
Schyler has always been our family. There really is no other way to explain it. It did at time take explaining say when he was 2 and he called me meme. ( short for mommy) and Dora MaMA and my Dad , Dad. That always got as few weird glances. We even bought him a shirt at one time that said my mommies love me, now being older and a small bit wiser I realize boy I bet that could have been taken the wrong way.
Schyler the poor kid went everywhere with us. He was cruising Kemp when he was less than a year old. He made more laps around malls than I care to admit. ( sometimes past certain spots just to show him off) Yes, we were that bad. We loved him and we were so proud of him.
Then.. Can you believe this ... The little shit Grew and do you know what. The older he got the more we fell in love with him. Little turkey!!! I have to say He was the coolest kid ever. He was going on Harley rides at 5. He had his first motorcycle when he was 8. He just was a cool kid. He very very rarely got in trouble and when he did get in trouble it wasn't something bad.It was things like him thinking he was a puppy and not staying out of the dog door. It was like drying the fish off because they were cold. Yep he did that, We had goldfish that were like 10 years old, schyler somehow got them out of the tank and dried them off. Or better yet, LyDora and I had a final at the same time one semester. It wasn't going to take either one of us a long time and we couldn't take Schyler into the final so, We took him to a fraternity house that we were little sisters to. Thinking hooper ( lydoras big brother and Scott would watch him) .. We showed up later and they had taught him to say " I love big hooters".. Yep we were on the ball. Its amazing the kid turned out as good as he did. He really is a great kid. He is a super Star soccer player , A jr. At Lake Dallas and is starting to look at collages. What happened, Why is it I can remember the day he was born like it was yesterday. I expect to go pick him up and us go play at the park!
Ok I could go on and on but pictures are called for so Enjoy the Slide show .

I LOVE YOU!!
