Let's go swimming!

I hope everyone is having a wonderful holiday weekend! Can you believe it is Memorial Day ALREADY! We are off to Nani and Poppy's to go swimming. Ty's first BIG pool! He loves his baby pool and water table that we have set up on the back deck. Tyler LOVES water! He loves bathtime, so of course he is gonna love swimming, huh!!! I saw the cutest thing ever the other day. I came home and Tim had Tyler all dressed up in a Body Glove wetsuit. It was the cutest thing ever. He is growing so fast, I cannot keep up!

Have a wonderful day everyone!

Love to all,

Such a wonderful day...

The most amazing feeling is being a Mommy. I have such a wonderful little boy. I am so blessed to be his Mom. I wake up everyday with a smile on my face. He brings so much joy to my life. So much love that I cannot explain. The way he looks at me, the way he smiles, even the way he eats, drinks...The way he is so curious about everything around him. I love it when he wakes up in the morning and he is standing in his crib. He gets so excited he bounces up and down, smiles and squeals in delight. I could go on and on...

I think about what I was feeling a year ago. I had little over one month till my due date. I was on bedrest, uncomfortable, counting the minutes till I met our little boy. I would do it all over again. I am so grateful for his little life.

So Mother's day is happy for me. I am blessed. Thank you Tyler, for picking me to be your Mommy. For being the most amazing person I know. I promise to love you, guide you, protect you, and believe in you. I love you with all my heart and soul.

Timmy, thank you for being such a wonderful father, husband, and best friend. You made my 1st Mother's Day a day I will never forget. I will cherish this day forever. I love you!

Happy Mother's Day to all the Mommies I know! Love to all!


Happy First Mother's Day Candace!

Today is Mother's Day. I tried to make it a weekend long event since it is our first and Tyler and Candace are so special to me. I took off work Friday without Candace knowing and I let her sleep in a bit and Friday I gave her a card and certificate to go get a manicure and a pedicure while I took care of the baby. Saturday Ty and I hung out and went to the mall (after I slept in) and played around and were pals while Candace ran some errands and used the certificate and went to our niece's daughter's ballet recital. I carried him through White Marsh for over an hour and lemme tell you, my right arm is SORE!

Sunday I tried to let Candace sleep in since Ty woke up at 6am, and when she woke up a couple hours later she woke up to Flowers (Daisy Crisanthimums) and a Mother-Child white gold pendant and 20" adjustable necklace for it.

We then drove up to Jordan and Megan's for brunch (which was AWESOME) and swung by the cemetary to visit my mom on the way home. I'm off to get crabs in a bit to wrap up a very nice weekend with crabs, draft beer and the Sopranos.

Tyler has been walking non stop. He doesn't crawl anymore. If he falls, he stands right back up and starts walking again without needing anything to hold onto. When he picks stuff up he squats down and gets it, he doesn't need to drop to his knees or butt anymore. He has been rolling the ball back and forth with Daddy and has been playing hide and seek with us too.

I'll be posting some picts Monday, my computer has been down all weekend.

I love you Can! Thank you for being the best mommy in the world to our little angel!

Well, so much for the crawling

Tyler has started walking. He is finding that it is much faster to walk to a location than it is to crawl. He is going everywhere now, it's pretty awesome. He is still unsure about himself and sometimes will just stop in midstep and realize he isn't holding on in the middle of the room and be like "uh, how'd I get here?" But then he'll take a few more steps to get where he was going. He is also mimic'ing everything we do and every sound we make. Candace will sing a scale and he will sing it back in his own little way. It's pretty cool. He says quack quack quack when he sees a duck and says kittie and dog still. He also says stinky when he has a poopy diaper and will say piggy when he burps. The other day Candace didn't pay attention when he burped and he looked at her and waited for her to say piggie, but she didn't. Then all the sudden he looked over at her and said "piggie".

He loves the mommy and me class that Can takes him to every Thursday and he is learning a lot from it. Candace has been teaching him a TON of stuff. He can sign "fan" for the ceiling fan and knows mommy and daddy and eat/food.

He was just christened and was a dear. He didn't cry or anything when Father George put the holy water on his head, he started smiling and laughing and when everyone clapped when he was done, he started clapping with them. It was awesome.

Mommies day is this weekend. Should be a pretty special day!
