Dust is 28 today!

Happy 28th Birthday Dust!!! We are going to see the new Simpsons movie tonight. I feel good about the sitter that is watching NJ tonight.

I told Dust the other day that I wish I was just turning 28. I will be the big 30 next year.

Have a wonderful day! We love you!

walking fool

NJ has finally gotten the hang of walking! He had his first steps around June 21st when his grandparents were visiting. On July 6th, NJ decided that he was going to walk or else! He took a few steps and fell and got right back up! He spent a couple hours that night trying to walk around the house. We were proud of him for not giving up. NJ is a determined little boy when he sets his mind to doing something.

On our vacation, NJ improved his balance when walking! He really enjoyed walking around Grandma's living room. He had persistance there too! He even wanted to walk outside.

My back feels a lot better now that I'm not bending over to help NJ learn to walk! It has been great watching him walk around the house now that we've been back. My day has just gotten easier!

full-time stay at home mom

This has been my first week as a full-time stay at home mom. On NJ's birthday, we had a wonderful day playing at home. He has taken two naps a day all week! Even I took advantage of nap time and occasionally took a nap myself. NJ is so energetic that I definitely need to take naps to keep up with him.

I am living my dream right now. My ultimate long-term goal has always been to be a stay at home mom. I have a sense of fullfillment. Maybe I should make some more goals now. Raising NJ is a priority goal.

Some people say that I will get bored. I really don't think that I will.
