One. 

Henry is one.  One full year old. 

I told him he’s been outside of my belly for all of the days. 

I can’t believe it. I can’t believe how much joy he brings us each day.  His actual birthday was low key as we were getting a new couch that day and it was super hot and humid. But, we did sing to him and let him try a cup cake. He was hilarious as he picked at it with his finger tip.  

    
    
 My mom brought it over and it had blue icing. So he was very blue. 

The pictures where he is looking confused is when we were singing to him. His face was hilarious. 
We are having a party for him on Sunday. It should be a fun time. I always stress about having enough food so we will probably have way too much because my parents are the same way. Lol! 
A few more pictures of my big boy!

Heart Bursting 

I find that my heart nearly bursts at the seams so often with Henry. 

Like, this morning when my husband got up with Henry and I walked by the bedroom and he was giving Henry a bottle and they were just sitting there in the dark looking at each other. 

Or the rare moments when Henry just wants to sit on my lap and chill. 

 

Or, any time my baby girl Ava interacts with Henry and or Craig. 

   

  

  

 

Or when I see Henry’s face when he sees his grandparents. 

Or when Henry takes a time out in the middle of playing for a smooch. 
Parenthood sure is tiring and a humongous life change. But, I am adjusting and loving every minute. 

Well, almost every minute…all but the whining. 😉

11 months old 

Man, Henry is 11 months old. I told him that soon he will have been around for “all of the days.”  

Life with Henry is just as it is described by moms everywhere- exhausting and rewarding. He is most definitely the best thing I’ve ever created. 

He loves to make people laugh like his mom. And he likes to take in new situations slowly, like his dad. He loves to make “mmmmm” sounds when he eats like his gramma. And everything weird he does, I say is inherited from my brother. 😆
I am absolutely crazy for my boy, and I could stare at him endlessly.

Summer Vacation 

Summer vacation has finally arrived. Hooray. 

I am loving spending the days with my baby boy.  He is so hilarious and more fun with each passing day. Also, I did sleep training, so he is finally sleeping through the night! That is huge. 

Nap time is still sketchy. But, I am going to work on that next. 

Which leads me to the nap time conundrum. When H goes down for a nap it could be 30 minutes or it could be an hour and a half. You just never know. And as soon as he goes down I am faced with the decision. Do I run around like crazy eating, cleaning, working out, and doing laundry or do I sit here and drink my coffee and watch the Today show? 
I suppose that I should do the first thing, but I am going to ease into summer. 

So, for today, coffee wins. 😊
Here are a few pics of my bug…
   
       

Hope to blog more regularly this summer! I miss it.

Summer…almost. 

Well, just a few more days and I will be on summer break! I can’t even believe it. I want to have a really fun summer with my bug! I can’t wait to take him to the zoo, and the pool! 

I can’t believe he is 10 months old. He is pulling himself up every where. It’s so fun to watch. At first it was so hard for him and now he does it every where and any where with such ease. I love watching him trying to figure out how to get down or where he is going to go up next. 

To be honest, I spend a lot of time just staring at him. 

In awe. 

And gratitude. 

I know I say it a lot. But, it’s so true. 

#attitudeofgratitude
He is the best thing ever.

❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️

Messy messy house 

ugh. I don’t know how people do it. 

My house is a freakin’ mess. Like really bad. 

Garbage cans are overflowing. 

Tables are stacked with mail. 

Foyer is overflowing with mail and newspapers and magazines. 

Beds are unmade. 

Laundry is every where. Clean and dirty. 

My room looks like a bomb went off. 
Ugh. 
Hope to get some cleaning done this weekend. 

Henry and I love selfies.   

Have a good weekend everybody.

Sleep Training

I know that I will have to sleep train my bug this summer. I’ve put it off until I was ready. And I am exhausted. And ready. 

But some nights after he falls asleep on me, I pull him up close so he is breathing on my neck and I hold him close and tears of gratitude just stream down my face. 
Tonight is one of those nights.
