Its been a bit chilly lately here in the south but thats what jackets are for! EJ and I spent a lovely afternoon on our front patio playing with his new favorite toy…. a FOOTBALL. Yes, is really is all boy! 

This is what we do all day….

Must I remind you little boy that you are only 7 months old. On the flip side we are so proud of you!

A letter to our son

It was a year ago yesterday that the world turned inside out and upside down. A year ago yesterday through watery eyes we saw a baby boy bouncing around an ultrasound screen. With tear stained cheeks and two hearts bursting with joy your dad and I felt the life we found in you. You were beautiful then already sporting your perfect profile, you flipped and floated showing us just how perfect all your parts were. Your heartbeat flawless, you were perfect.

Life began in that moment, everything was different but everything was better. I thought I loved you then, but then I got to know you and today I love you more. Your scratchy voice, your laughs out of nowhere, the smile you greet me with every morning… your such a happy child that daily reminds me of how thankful I am for you. You are your daddy’s son, with a turn of a head or squeal I suddenly see him across your face. I can not wait to see the man you grow to be, for you will always have our love and support and to us you will be perfect. Feb. 12 will forever be your day, I will never forget the day my life changed, the day you were named and the day I found out one of many reasons I love your daddy more than I can comprehend.

Your daddy and I can not even express the love we have for you. You steal our hearts everyday.

This Sunday, Craig and I had EJ christened at our church. Personally, I think he was the cutest little guy there but I am slightly partial. EJ however found his tongue that morning and stuck it out all day, including while the minister was holding him. It was rather funny and makes me wonder if he is trying to tell us at an early age his feelings on religion.

McFatty again.. FAIL

Enough said right?!?!
Can you believe this amazing pizza, full balsamic drizzle amazingness and all compliments of my very best friend. Yep, we have been friends FOREVER, since we had cute curls, thought boys were gross and like things like tutus and  bunnies. Needless to say many years later we are still great friends and if she is making awesome pizza well I’m gonna eat it.
But, I had many reasons to celebrate and as I admitted last week I’m an emotional eater. 
Happy= eat and drink
Sad= eat and drink
This week was happy! I had my annual girls weekend with my best friends from High School AND (drumroll please) Craig got a job. YAY, we are thankfully back to world of the employed. Phew we can buy diapers again right?!?! And those things don’t come cheap.
I am so glad my guilt of well I guess I should have tried breast feeding longer can go back to never never land cause yes I’ll admitted it… it totally grossed me out and I hated it. 2 months was more than enough for me and please don’t chastise me for it. I know, I know, I know… I’m selfish, I suck, I would be thinner… I couldn’t take it. Plus I was totally stressed out with life don’t ever move right after you have a baby,  my milk supply was well water.
But I feel like crude thanks to eating crap all weekend so this week its detox. Yes no sugar, no carbs, no junk. But happily I didn’t gain any weight just didn’t lose any.  Next week will be better and someone better hold me to it!
