5 Months

5 Months already?!? Hard to believe. The little chunk is growing SO fast! He is smiling and laughing all of the time now. He absolutely loves his Baby Einstein videos (although the AAP doesn't recommend children under 2 watching TV--this is another one I'm going to ignore). Every night after I pick him up from school (daycare), we come home and do exercises. He will lay flat on his back and with a little help from Mommy we do sit-ups, then stand-up, then back down and all over again. He loves it and is always so intense and focused. Last night Miss Lexy told me that whenever he's laying down he tries so hard to sit up. She said he's going to have a six-pack by the time he's one! Ha!

My First Mother's Day

I celebrated my very first Mother's Day as a mother! Here is a pic that Anthony made me at school. The poem is so sweet...made me cry! I'm so very blessed, and being a mother is the most amazing and rewarding thing I have ever done! I love my family to pieces!

In case it's too hard to read from the picture, here is the poem:

I am your little flower, Mom

Please help me grow and bloom;

Take the weeds, but leave the roots

And give me lots of room.

Mom, you are my gardener;

My sunshine and my rain.

Too much will make me wither

With enough I'll bloom again.

I am your little flower, Mom

I'm different from the rest;

Don't pick me Mom, just help me grow

To be my very best.
