Baby's first Christmas

This was our son's first Christmas as well as our first Christmas together as a family. He was spoiled by my husband and I as well as his Grandma with many toys he has yet to figure out how to play with lol. One of my favorites is a bilingual Universal remote, he is always trying to grab our tv remote out of our hands so this has been the perfect toy to entertain him! I can't wait until next year when I can explain to him about Santa and the birth of Jesus.

I also experienced my first pig roast. I was intimidated by the large pig spread on the counter, head still attached, but this had to have been the best meat I've had in a long time! I hope everyone's Christmas was as nice as ours!

Love you Forever

My husband and our family keep getting onto me about cutting our sons hair. The problem is, I just can’t bring myself to pull our the scissors and give him a trim!You see, our 7 month old son has random patches of hair scattered on his head with a few very very long sporadic strands that stick up in the air. My husband jokes around and says he is going to be a grown man with a few long hairs all the way down to his butt. For the longest time I could not figure out why I became so sad when the haircut topic came up, until today. I realized the reason I am procrastinating cutting his hair is because to me, a hair cut symbolizes him growing up, and I so desperately want him to stay my baby. I feel like my emotions are that of a crazy person every time he reaches a new milestone, I get all excited for him, but then soon get saddened that my little boy is growing up too fast. Perhaps I am thinking selfishly, but I want him to be able to snuggle on my lap with a pacifier for the rest of his life.

Maybe this explains why my all time favorite Children's book is Love You Forever by Robert Munsch. The photo you see here is one of my favorite from the book, the mother just climbed up a window at her son's home to rock him to sleep. If you have never read Love you Forever, get it. I promise it will become one of your favorite as well.

"I'll love you forever, I'll like you for always, As long as I'm living my baby you'll be."

First Cold

My son has his first cold. And like all other baby's "firsts" I find this one as cute as all the others. Don't get me wrong, I feel terrible for him that his little nose is running like a faucet, and luckily no fevers are present. But he seems just as happy as any other day, that is until I pull the syringe out. I'm making sure he gets all the kisses and cuddles he needs to feel better.

I'll be pulling out the Vicks humidifier tonight and hoping for a better tomorrow!

Reporting for Duty!

I’m young, I’m a mom, …and I have no idea what I’m doing! (Just Kidding, its not that bad…There are books on how to do this stuff.) In the past year my life has changed dramatically. My once immature and selfish world is transforming into a world of selflessness, responsibility, and is now filled with unconditional love. Being a young mom means you have lost many luxuries, but in return have found a more important meaning in life. Join me as I continue to adjust to my new path in life. I’m learning something new everyday, about life, love, family and motherhood..the best gift in the world.
