Bath time!

EJ’s favorite part of the day is his bath. I think we may have a swimmer on our hands because he kicks, has already figured out how to float and loves to dunk himself. I can’t wait to start him in swimming lessons this spring. I guess he loves the water as much as his momma!

Every Mom needs a Happy Hour

Lately, I have found myself looking at all the many blogs out there centered around pregnancy, mothers and children. It really is quite fun to read the life and tribulations of others in our same shoes. I love how many women share their craziness and then there are the others who think they have actually received a medical degree because they have read every child rearing book out there and determined what is the best medical way to raise children. These women are crazy (I am sorry if you feel that I am offending you but I promise I am not calling anyone out). I have heard over and over the new age reasoning on why we should do certain things or abstain from certain things. And let me tell you if you do something on their No No list you are going to be damaging your child forever.

Calm down and listen to your instincts drop the books in the trash and don’t worry so much. Child rearing is static what works today in 10 yrs will be the worst thing you could ever do to your child and what is terrible parenting today will be amazing.
Every mom needs a happy hour, grab a glass of wine let dear old dad take the reins for a few hrs and do something that makes you sane again. And, I promise despite what your firmly believe Dad is not going to break or kill the baby. God gives us dads to do the things moms are afraid to do. Like make them stand at 4 months or let the dog kiss them.
A relaxed, revived women is a better wife and mother and really that is what all strive to be isn’t it?

The Holman Happenings

I love my bottle!

After weeks of trying EJ finally mastered hold his bottle yesterday. We had been working on it for a few weeks propping it up on his Boppy, yet another reason that is such an amazing gadget. Thanks mom for insisting I get it! But, yesterday he finally just held it all on his own. Of course today he wasnt really into holding it and kept dropping it and yelling but we are well on our way to being able to handle it all on our own! And I will be so glad, I love our quiet bottle time at night but sometime I need those 20 mins during the day when he can entertain himself to do household things. Wow what a cutie!

Rainy days…

Its been raining a ton lately in Atlanta, no worries the Holmans are fine we live on top of a very big hill. Sadly we spring a leak in one of the sky lights but we are very thankful that is all that has happened. So many people’s homes flooded so we really can’t complain too much . But the rain hasn’t inspired me to leave too much so EJ and I have been hanging at home the last week. Here are some recent shots of our adorable little man!!

Bradley & I

One of my oldest and greatest friends came into town this week to enjoy a great night with her husband. AND we got to watch Bradley who is exactly 5 weeks younger than EJ. It was so fun to enjoy a short visit and get our boys together.
