Bares his weight on his legs
Has grown a very successful mullet (first haircut is coming soon)
Has been introduced to solid foods
Has moved to a "big boy" bath
Started sleeping in his crib (as of today)
Still yells at me when he doesn't get my attention in a "timely fashion"

Wraps his arms around my neck and buries his head when I pick him up from naps
Will only snuggle with mom when he is cranky
Loves watching Baby Einstein and swinging in his swing

Has put his feet in Grandma Cindy and Grandpa Dave's pool
Is looking forward to another visit with Grandma and Grandpa Bailey

This may have been one of my top three best concerts EVER! It was so entertaining and full of energy. Nothing like a little Mr. A to Z and Dave to make it a wonderful Mother's Day weekend!
We were out until about 1:am. And the next morning we both decided that we are too old to pull these late nights anymore. :) Hee Hee Hee

There are some friends of mine that I totally admire. Their children are always dressed and hair done. They look fantastic themselves. They have the patience of a saint. They shop, have a clean home, go out with friends, go to church and a million other things. And they do it gracefully. Without missing a beat.
So, yesterday, as I barley clung onto my screaming son and pushed the stroller out of the store which then got caught on the other door - I felt so clumsy and crazy! Then I held my crying baby and walked up and down the aisle at a restaurant while people stared at me. I didn't even shower . . . not a great day to be stared at. Not to mention the baby weight that is refusing to come off.
How do these moms always have it together?! AND look beautiful doing it?! Is there some secret no one has told me about?! :)

I miss you today. I miss you so much.
Today I as I was feeding Jack a bottle in the portable crib (cause he won't take a bottle if I am holding him) I rested my head against the side of his crib. Instantly memories flooded my thoughts. How many times did I rest my head on the side of your crib as I sat by your side? The memories felt like a 10,000 pound weight crushing me. And you know that was odd? I welcomed it. It was like running into an old friend I hadn't seen in awhile. I greeted that weight with open arms. You see, the pain isn't like it used to be. Please don't misunderstand, my heart is still broken as I miss you, but I have come to embrace your mission and have gratitude for the time we had with you. The most defining three months of my life.
You see, a momma never forgets the time she has with her child.
Life is good with Jack. We are happy and we laugh much more than we have in a long time. God has been gracious to us. We have received more blessings than I ever would have deserved.
I still think I am the luckiest momma in the world. Heavenly Father gave you to me to be my son. He knew that I would love you no matter what and that I would fight to the very end for you. He knew that I would change forever once you came into my life. You have motivated me to be a better person and to have faith.
