A few things to know about Mister...

1. He LOVEs fact he collects them...
2. He is not blonde and bald...

While it might not be a lot...He DOES have some brown hair which he is loosing on the sides as we speak. Not sure why he photographs so bald and light!? Either way, he is as cute as they come.

3. His Mommy and Auntie went and saw this last night, and while they had the time of their lives laughing at katherine heigl's airbrushed and at times replaced body in the movie...they couldn't believe how AWFULL it was.

Letting go...

So, I pretty much have not left my house for months. I was on bed rest at the end of my pregnancy and I have been too nervie to take Mister out. I always said..."I will start taking him out at six weeks." and now he will be six weeks tomorrow. Im not sure how I feel about this. If you know me at all you know I can be anxious...this is my new "anxiety"...taking him out into the world is what I am focused on. I was thinking today about Monie and what that must have been like for sister to see her newborn baby SO sick in the hospital. She was so strong...could I be strong like her? I realize I cant live my life like this, afraid of what COULD happen to him. Not to mention people live their lives everyday... an obvious statement for most. So, Im trying to let go of my fears. I want to get Mister out, not to mention its what is best for his immune system. So tomorrow is the day...Im turing over a new leaf...changing my thought process. We will be MOM AND SON ABOUT TOWN...thats what you will call us. Movers and shakers. Completely carefree of this germ infested world. kidding.../not

Here are some photos from my phone...thats all I ever take because my phone is always right there and my camera isn't.

Can you believe those dimps? He is pretty much giggling these days.

Big time...

Yes...Mister is 15.

I don't know what is worse...A) the fact that Jude is in a pink Bumbo seat. B) the fact that he is sitting in that pink bumbo seat on a chair. or C) the fact that the moment I turned my back for one second Estee was trying to shove that cupcake in his mouth.
I promise Im a good Mommy to you Jude.

So happy...

Please forgive the nursing bra...and the fact that Im pasty white...and have no makeup on. Lets just say I have seen better days. But how could I pass up posting this photo of me and Mister. He is all smiles...when he's not yelling at me.

Estee is so cute with Jude. She told me when he was crying, all you have to do is say to him "Im here baby, Im here." How cute is that? Sister must say that to her when she cries.

We are loving you so much Jude. Some nights you sleep a total of 4 hours and some nights we get REALLY lucky and you sleep 6 1/2 hours in a row... like last night. Hoping for more nights like that but not holding our breath. You are getting so big and even rolled over the other day. Your daddy and I couldn't believe our eyes. It is so sweet when you give me that gummy smile I can hardly hold back the tears. You make us so, so happy. Thank you.

Oscar + Jude

How cute are these two? Oscar is only 8 days older than Jude. It was seriously the funniest/most darling thing ever seeing them together. They are already besties... holding hands and whatnot.

Happy Birthday Mister...

I cant believe you are a month already Jude. You have already changed so much. Sometimes when you fall asleep, I lay next to you and get as close to your face as I can. I take you in, your little hands in motion, your nursing lips and your sweet breath...oh that sweet, sweet breath. I try to not take one minute of this time for granted...when I hold you sometimes I cry a little because I know there will come a day when I cant hold you in my arms and rock you to sleep. Simply put baby boy...I love you. You are what I was put on this earth for.

Its been a while...

First off... I promise Jude is not in his jammies all day everyday. (all I have posted is photos of him in his p.j.s, which really is sad because the child has the cutest/most clothes in the world)

Here is the Mister Grumpus in his bouncy chair. He liked that for about 5 min. today.

And...look how I found him sleeping. Oh mister, what am I going to do with you?!

It has been a crazy past couple of weeks. I love this little boy more than I ever knew could be possible. Boyfriend and I look at him everyday and say to each other..."can you believe he is here and so perfect".

I do feel very out of the loop. What is going on out there in the real world?

Right now...

I am sitting on our bed listening to boyfriend sing and hum lullabies to our newborn son in his nursery. Heaven is on earth.
