Murphy's Law of Parenting

  • Baby's first tooth will show up on vacation

  • As soon as the camera turns on baby will stop smiling, rolling over ,walking, etc...

  • The second you put baby in an adorable outfit, that is the moment he will have a diaper explosion

  • The second you wear a new, dry-clean only outfit, that is the moment he will have a diaper/vomit explosion

  • When Daddy leaves that is the moment that baby will start to cut his molars

  • When you complain that baby doesn't sleep and cries a lot, he will be a perfect angel, sleeping and cooing, in front of anyone you complain to

  • He will be a perfect angel in dayhome interviews and then be cutting teeth & on his worst behaviour his first day (and get fired....twice)

  • His first steps will be at Grandma & Grandpa's - when Mom isn't around

  • The days that we can sleep in, he will wake up at 5:30 and when we need to get up, he won't wake up until 8:30

  • The one time that baby needs a bottle way earlier than normal is the one time we won't have a bottle

Happy Birthday Baby!

To my beloved son:

Happy First Birthday! I can’t believe my baby is one, my baby is not a baby anymore but a toddler. You are a beautiful, happy and enjoyable child. You make me smile every single day. You have changed so much in a year, it’s amazing the difference. When you were born and placed in my arms, you were so tiny and so breakable. But now, you are this solid, active little boy. You don’t stop moving. You love to crawl all over the house and pull yourself up on everything. You love to smile & giggle. You wave to us and your whole face lights up when you see Daddy come home from work. My whole being rejoices when you say “ma-ma” and I know you want me. You’re first steps were so exciting! There is a part of me that is sad now that you have officially reached toddlerhood because it means you are growing up on me, this year has flown by. But I am so excited to continue watching you grow up and further develop your personality. You are so silly and hilarious to watch. You know when you make us smile and you try so hard to make us laugh. You make silly sounds, you wave, you try to feed us and you have this full body shake that you do when you are really excited. There is nothing quiet, cautious or controlled about you. You are loud, fearless and a little spazzy. :) And that’s why I love you. I can’t wait for this next year as you learn to walk and talk and become a little man!
Happy Birthday Baby! I love you.

Your Mama

I’ll love you forever
I’ll like you for always
As long as I’m living
My baby you’ll be

So happy!

Two of my favorite people got married this weekend, it was such a beautiful wedding and it was just so wonderful to be a part of that day and witness this couple get married. I love weddings so much, it's so easy to get cynical about relationships these days with every second person you know getting divorced but it's great to see people still believing in marriage and believing tha they will make it. It makes me remember my wedding and remember how happy I was that day and it just makes me feel even more in love with my husband. He is my everything. He's my rock, my best friend, the one I laugh with, cry on, vent to and want to be with at the end of every day.
