As a family we had so much fun this past weekend. D and A are growing so quickly. I wanted to experiment a bit with my camera so here are some of my shots along with some of my current thoughts. These were all taken on Manual Mode.
D, my charming gentlemen, has become so much more responsible, helpful, and even more loving (as if that were even possible). I can’t figure out if that has to do with the fact that he LOVES his new school or because he is passed the terrible twos. He is such a little charmer and honestly he amazes me more than words can begin to describe. He also seems to be getting frustrated less and knows how to explain himself better.
D’s favorite game right now is “School”. It is so adorable to see him role play.
D’s favorite time with me is reading time… he still loves his books which makes me so happy since I am a total book worm!
My hubby…. not so much.
His favorite song right now is A Teens ‘Mama Mia’ and The Chipmunks ‘You Spin Me Right Round’ which we both sing and dance to together.
I love you my charming son… more than you can ever understand…
Or rather, as we both like to say:
I love you “BIG much!”
I love you to Infinity…. and beyond!
A… my little princess.
A started crawling a few weeks ago(at 8 months). She got her first two teeth two weeks ago and did remarkably well for a baby that was teething. I wouldn’t have even known that she popped a tooth if it wasn’t for looking in her mouth.
A has a very feisty personality right now but yet still amazingly sweet. She is a very determined little girl and if she wants something she WILL get it. Nobody can deter her.
Her nightly massage has become a bit challenging and not so ‘nightly’. It is hard to get her to stay still for even a few minutes…. but those quiet moments during A’s bedtime massage special memories are formed in my heart. Our massage time is such a bonding experience. A few nights ago while I was giving her a massage I had the candles lit… soft spa type of music playing in the background… my little angel fell asleep while I was massaging her. I felt so content in my heart to know that I had pampered my baby girl so much that she could drift off to sleep so peacefully.
My pillar of strength 🙂 I feel as if I found him again. Pregnancy hormones can make things in life(besides your kids) so mute… but once they are gone and you are back to your normal self life is full of color. My memory though is still not what it used to be…darn it for not taking the Omega tablets as often as I was supposed to… I wonder how long it takes to recover from pregnancy brain? 🙂
Here are some inspirational quotes on parenting that I would like to share with my readers:
When I pick up one of my children and cuddle them, all the strain and stress of life temporarily disappears. There is nothing more wonderful than motherhood and no one will ever love you as much as a small child.-Nicola Horlick
Discovering that with every child, your heart grows bigger and stronger – that there is no limit to how much or how many people you can love, even though at times you feel as though you could burst – you don’t – you just love even more.-Yasmin Le Bon
I’d also like to share this with you:
Motherhood: A Celebration of Life By Donna Gephart
It’s LEARNING: You Learn from your children as much as they learn from you. As you struggle to help them toward adulthood, they escort you to their wonderful place of innocence, imagination, and delight.
It’s HAVING FUN: Get on the floor and play with your kids every day. Create opportunities for fun. Dirty dishes wil always be there. Children grow too quickly.
It’s LIMITS: Not only do you teach children limits, you learn your own limits for patience and your endurance for long, challenging days. You also learn there is one thing that is limitless: your feeling of love toward your children.
It’s WATCHING THEM SLEEP: At the end of each day, you recall the greatest joys and challenges- how they make you so angry and then so happy a moment later. Asleep, though, they are nothing less than angels.
It’s TIME FOR YOU: Every mother learns that time for herself is essential to renew and rechage. Two hours alone to yourself when someone else is responsible for your kids can mean days of better parenting. When you feel good about yourself and are happy, everyone’s beter off.
It’s LOVE: Snuggling together for bedtime stories or for popcorn and rented movies. Unsolicited “I love you’s.” sloppy kisses and clumsy hugs. Parenting brings more love than we could ever hope for- everlasting, unconditional love of the greatest lengths and depths.– Donna Gephart.
I wish all you mamas a beautiful and blessed day today with your children 🙂
