My Favorite Thing

Guess what? Today is the last day of school with the kids and then one more week for me!! We had 5th grade recognition last night and it turned out so well. We put in so much work and I am glad it went off with no problems. I realized last night how much I am going to miss those kids. Yes I may get irratated and fraustrated, but I know I will always remember them. Overall all this group has been wonderful. So to make a long story short: I have promised myself that I am going to work on Andrew sleeping in his huge crib all alone in his lonely room (can you tell this is going to be hard) when school is out. So I purchased this (above) with a gift card we have been saving. It is a color (with night vision) monitor. It is amazing!!! We have tried it out during naps and you can see and hear everything. I really think I might be able to make it becuase I can look at this in the middle of the night and see exactly what is going on. I really don't think I could have done it without this. So anyway in one weeks time I will let you know how that goes. I am off to enjoy the last day with my amazing students!!!

Memorial Day Weekend

I hope everyone had a great long weekend. I know I did! I got to enjoy it with my two favorite people. We had another relaxing weekend. We went to my sisters for a cookout. We did not get to stay too long because Andrew was a little fussy and it was near his bed time. We also went to Anderson Sunday and did some clothes shopping for Andrew. I never thought we have to buy clothes this soon, but the boy is growing. Most of the clothes we got at showers were 0-3 months and he is now in 3-6 months. We found some really cute clothes at Kohls and Toy's R Us. He also got his 4th of July outfit!! He did so wonderful the whole time we were there! We have three more days with the kids, then a week of post planning and then SUMMER!!

Nick made this wonderful salad the other day. It had pork tenderloin, apples, walnuts, apricot preserve dressing, goat cheese, and bacon. Yummy!

Look who has found his fingers!!
Sunday we put Andrew in his Bumbo seat and let him help us cook.He really enjoyed it! I think he is going to be a chef one day or maybe just cook a nice dinner for me one day!We also have a new pet, well kind of. We have a wild turkey that has being staying in our yard for about a month now. This is Gobbles! I think we are going to keep him! LOL! Really he is always in the yard. Just a few mins. ago I said, "There goes Gobbles!" and there he went running across the yard. We see him at least a couple of times a day.

3 months again

Look how much he has grown in only 3 short months! He looks different in every picture.
If you click on the picture you can see it bigger.

I have a field trip to attend tomorrow. Say a prayer!

3 months again!

3 Months

Yesterday Andrew turned 3 months old! Still can't believe how quickly he is growing. I am not sure his exact weight right now, but he is getting so big! Here are some things he is doing now:

-when laying on his stomach he can lift his head
-when you put him on his side he can roll the rest of the way over
-beginning to prefer fingers over pacifier
-just started drinking 6 ounces every 3-4 hours
-is very content to lay around without being held, as long as he can see you
-still sleeping ALL night (has since he was 8 weeks)
-rarely takes long naps during the day
-he is a morning person
-has to eat whenever mommy eats
-loves his stroller and being outside
-still loves being read to
-cooing, laughing, and making noises all the time
-is beginning to wear 3-6 month clothes
-is the biggest blessing to mommy and daddy and we never forget that

I could not get a good picture with the teddy bear, but I will work on that tomorrow. Here are some from the last few days.

Mother's Day

I had a wonderful 1st Mother's Day! We went to church and listened to a wonderful service and went home and got ready for a cookout at the lake with my family. We also had a cookout at our house on Saturday for Nick's brother. I also went to a wedding that day. I had tons of fun, but felt like I did not stop the whole weekend. Nick and I have decided to take a break from doing so much on the weekends. We need quiet family time and we hope to start doing that more. Anyway for Mother's Day I got an IOU because Nick could not find this:

I can't wait to have these and relax in the yard during the summer. I hope everyone had a wonderful mother's day!!

I Forgot!

I completely forgot to mention that Andrew and I went to Meg's baby shower on Saturday. We had a lot of fun and there were tons of babies there. I am so happy that Andrew will have a lot of friends his age to play with!

I hope everyone had a great Monday. Mine was ok, but I was so tired the whole day, so it was hard to be in a good mood. Andrew never seems to sleep well on Sunday nights which means I don't either. Pray for good sleep tonight!!!

Weekend Update

We had another busy busy weekend! Doesn't it seem that when you want and really need a relaxing weekend you end up being busier than normal. Anyway we had fun along the way. Friday we had our normal La Cabana meal with great friends! I love Friday nights!! Saturday spent some time at home and then headed to Outback. Andrew loved the loud atmosphere and slept almost the whole time. Then we went to Sam's where Nick got a Blue Ray DVD player for his birthday, along with formula and other essentials. You can get such a good bargain there! We then headed home and feel asleep quickly (at least Andrew and I did). I kept telling Nick how wonderful of a baby we have. He did cry or even begin to get upset the whole time we were gone and we were gone for over four hours. We are BLESSED!! Today we spent at home running around like crazy finishing lesson plans, cooking for the week (not I, but Nick HA!) doing laundry, visting with guests, and finally getting ready for bed. What an exhausting, but wonderful weekend! Hope you had one too!!
