So people have been asking me "are you going to start a blog?" I thought to myself...when will I have time??? With a 10 week old, a dog whom doesn't get enough attention, and a husband who has lots of projects going on, when can I sit down a blog?? Well, since I'm off on Mondays, I'll make that day my blogging day (we'll see how long that lasts).
JM has been smiling for about 2 weeks now. He actually wakes up smiling, even if he was just crying, I go in his room and he stops crying to smile as if he's saying "Good Mornin' Mom & Dad!!" He's been sleeping through the night, at least 7 hours straight...lets hope he keeps this habit up :) The last 10.5 weeks have flown by, JM is outgrowing clothes, sitting up in his Bumpo chair (Thanks M.E.), and carrying on baby talk conversations with us.
Everyone kept telling J and I that your life is about to change. Well duh, we're having a baby of course its going to change, right?? Well I have realized that they were all right, but the change has been more than I ever could have imagined. Its not just a loss of sleep, or feeding James every 3 hours...its an emotional change. We are now a Mommy and Daddy!!! On Mother's Day I called my mom to tell her happy moms day and my dad told me Happy Mothers Day...Wow we both felt old, but it was in a cool way. It was a holiday we always celebrated for my mom but today I was also celebrated. We went to Carabas for lunch at 2:30 and there was a 30 minute wait!!! I guess everyone else thought they'd wait until 2:30 also to eat lunch. It was yummy! JM slept through the whole thing, which was fine by us. I also got a sweet card from J that he and JM signed (J put the pen in JM' hand and wrote his name). Oh, my other gift was 9 hours of straight sleep from JM!! That's right he slept 9 hours straight!!!!
Here are a few pics of JM:
The Bumpo chair rocks!!
Relaxing and watching the Firemen on TV
We went to Panoply Arts Festival and heard the Fiddlers competition...JM really liked squirming around to the music!!
Yesterday I made the most delicious Monkey Bread with a mix from Williams Sonoma (I only bought it cause it was half off). It took a lot longer than expected...mainly cause the directions were in paragraph form and took up the whole backside of the box!!! Come on, I know that I should use oven mitts (yes, it actually said to use oven mitts)!!!
