A brief update!

July 18, 2011

Hi all!

Well it certainly has been far too long since I’ve been blogging more then just pics of C! So here it goes…

We have been pretty busy the past few weekends so I’ll try my best to summarize! (what I can remember…I have a hard time remembering what I did yesterday!)

Our adorable niece, B turned 1 at the end of June. I am so mad because I forgot my camera so the only pics I got are from my iPhone, so they aren’t the greatest. C had fun hanging with her cousins. We are happy to be close and hope the kids will continue to be able to have each other to grow up together! Here is a pic of the Birthday girl and C, sharing toys…and one of E with them.



We celebrated the Fourth of July with our best friends, K&D and our adorable God children, A&A! We made a vacation weekend of it and spent 4 nights with them. It was such a great weekend..and we always leave there sad wishing that we lived closer! We got to hang at the pool and do a little swimmin’. Even Cody got in the pool, and then realized it’s not a wading pool with a shallow end like his doggie daycare has! Oh we love him, but he is such a weenie sometimes! I took some funny pics of the girls right before we left..I’ll post them soon!

We have family visiting from France this month. I went last weekend with my dad to greet my cousin, his wife and their two sons down in Boston Saturday night. Then Sunday morning we took a ride up to the lake to spend time with them and my dad. They are staying with my dad and will be here this coming weekend to spend time with us. It has been 18 years since we last saw one another…way too long! Looking forward to showing them around, taking them to the seacoast and most importantly spending quality family time together.

Well that’s a little catching up…I am still learning how to use my iPhone and how to blog from it! I leave you with this shot of C as she was eating her lunch when we were out with Grammy this weekend!

“seriously mom, would you like me taking pictures of you while you eat? Step away from the iPhone!”


How about a Wednesday movie?

July 13, 2011

Yesterday was tough, but things are better today. Thank you all for your support! I’m so blessed to have such wonderful people I am surrounded by who care so deeply for me.

We have been experiencing some brutally hot weather here in New England, so C has been rockin’ her birthday suit along with a diaper and a pony, of course! Cody and her have been having so serious bonding time.

This little video happened after I walked in on the two of them…C was hugging Cody’s neck and kissing him while sporting some major hair stuck to her face from Cody kisses. They are so cute together…he is such a good boy with her.

Oh, and can you tell someone will be walking soon? We are screwed.

My bleeding heart.

July 12, 2011

We have a routine every morning, E gets C ready for the day while I get ready. He packs us up in the car and off we go to daycare and work. We go through the motions, like robots…it’s not my ideal situation, but it’s what we need to do right now.

When I drop her off at daycare I sit her down with her classmates on the play mat while I put all her bottles and food away. When I am finished I go and give her kisses and hugs goodbye. She usually will grab a toy or crawl away to something that she wants to play with and then I’m off.

This morning, I got us ready and all packed up. Things were VERY different this morning. This morning was probably one of the hardest mornings I’ve had since I started back to work after C was born.

She was is a great mood this morning, happy as could be. When I finished putting her things away at daycare, I followed my routine of sitting down with her and giving her hugs and kisses and as I got up, out came the waterworks and the hysterical crying. I turned around and hugged her some more and then her teacher came over to take her from my arms. I had to turn away and walk out. Every bone in my body wanted to take her with me and go home, but that wouldn’t help either one of us…so I walked away to the sound of my baby girl scream and cry and just stare at me with tears pouring from her face.

I walked out to my car and tears fell from my face. I sat in my car and probably shed more tears then I can remember. It’s been 2 hours since I dropped her off and I am still having trouble trying to collect myself.

If any of you know C, she doesn’t really cry much and has never been a fussy baby. She will usually go to anyone and be fine after a little warming up. I’ve read about separation anxiety in books and that around her age is when it will happen. I really didn’t think it was possible with her, she just didn’t seem like she would be that way. Boy, was I wrong.

Seeing the tears on her face this morning and her arms trying to pull for me, killed me. It crushed me and made my heart bleed. I want today to be over. I want to be with my baby.


Happy 4th!

Wishing you all a happy and safe 4th of July!


C is 9 months!

June 27, 2011

Here is C posing for her 9 month photo and rocking a pony! See below at the months previous to compare! I promise to fill everyone up to speed this week. I’m am too pooped to write tonight. Been busy organizing C’s pictures. I swear, I really am the paparazzi. This child is going to grow up thinking a camera should be on her at all times.

More to come…I promise! (I know you are reading Jenn!!)

A letter to my baby girl…

June 27, 2011

My dear sweet baby girl,

This week you turned 9 months old. I can’t believe how quickly you are growing and changing. It seems like everyday you are doing something new. Always remember, it’s important to learn new things, even when you get older like mommy and daddy.

You have been crawling now for the past few weeks and even starting to pull yourself up to your knees. The things you crawl the fastest for are things you shouldn’t be playing with like the remote control, mommy or daddy’s cell phone and even Cody’s toys. It’s been fun to watch you try to get them though. You love to crawl to your basket of books and take them out. You love when mommy and daddy read to you, because you get to turn the pages like a big girl would. You have become so much more aware of your books and the pictures in them, by feeling the pages and the textures that are in some of them and even giving the doggies kisses.

Your smile is infectious and your giggles are even more so. It makes my whole heart smile with happiness. You can be very chatty at times and I really think you are singing sometimes…which doesn’t surprise me if you are. You love music, so lets hope you have daddy’s musical talents and not mommy’s terrible singing voice.

You love your doggie, Cody, and give him HUGE smiles everyday when we walk through the door and come home from daycare. Since you have started crawling you will crawl to him and pet him…well maybe pull on his hair a little, but he has sits there like a good doggie taking it all in. He also comes and sits next to you and shows his love for you by giving you big doggie kisses. Sometimes you don’t mind, but other times your hand goes flailing in the air for him to buzz off.

You started eating more finger foods and have become just like Cody…you love cheese! 🙂 You are just like mommy and are very vocal about when you are hungry. I don’t blame you, we girls need to eat! I just sit her in awe and amazement how quickly you pick things up and how you are becoming such an amazing little person.

Being your mommy is the best feeling I have ever felt. You have brought me more joy, happiness and love that I never knew existed. You have opened my mind and eyes to new things I couldn’t think about or see. You have taught me so many things and I just adorae you and being your mommy.

Please know, that I will always be here for you to help you along the way, no matter what. Always stand true to who you are and never forget it. You are going to be amazing, I just know it… you already are. I can’t wait for the countless memories that lie before us…I see many smiles, giggles and lots of snuggle time.

You are my love & life always and forever.

Love Always,
