Happy Birthday Dad and Happy 10 months to You!

Your dad is 29 today.

He caught up with Mommy.

In his honor, we went to the store and got a balloon.
Happy birthday, Adam!
Even from across the country you are an amazing father, husband and friend.
We miss you every moment but are so proud of you and the many things you are doing.
We love your passion, your faith, your humor, your soul.
Thank you for making this family.
I'm glad that you were born!
Happy 10 months to you too, Little Man!

Mommy Date

We went to the "Rainforest Cafe" today.

We love having these dates. Well, I do. Pretty much every day is a Mommy date for you but in my mind it is something new and different and we both benefit from it.
You are completely distracted by all of the animals. I love how you don't let it get in the way of stuffing your face, you incorporate it.
That's my boy!!!

I'm Baaack!

So red was fun.

For a second.

I am most definitely a blonde. Through and through.

Feels good to be back.

This car follows me....not really

Another Orlando favorite.

This car has hundreds of little statues attached to it's, well, everything. Anything on the outside that could have a statue on it does.

Always makes me smile.

Of course this would happen

I'm trying desperately to get home to you. Of course, the first time I leave you my flight gets cancelled and the entire airport shuts down.

I hate Chicago.
I'm never leaving you again.

My First Trip without You

Your dad and I made a promise to see each other at least once a month while we were living apart. This month was a tough one and it looked like we would not be able to see each other. I couldn't get enough time off to get both you and I across the country and your dad only has one day off a week.

So I decided to go by myself. Which meant leaving you.

Deep Breath.

Your Nana and Aunt Heather are taking care of you. They love you. They will take great care of you.

But it's the first time I'm away.

We miss you so much!!!!

Meeting Rapunzel

Mommy got to meet Rapunzel this week. Rapunzel and Cinderella got to play together at WDW for a company party.

Her hair is SUPER long and SUPER heavy.

But I loved her dress, and her flowers, and the utter girliness of her.

Even if it was just for a day....

A Sick Day

I hate it when you are sick. Your eyes don't sparkle, you look so sad and you cry.

That does not make mommy happy.

However, on your sick days you DO like to cuddle. I love that. You will sit with me and let me give you hugs and kisses and cuddle you all day long.

You LOVE the Hot Dog Dance...

This is your face when the "Hot Dog" dance comes on Mickey Mouse Clubhouse.

Your joy brings me so much joy.

A Visit from Kaleb and Andrew

Your sweet aunt Heather brought down Kaleb and Andrew to come and stay with us for a few days.

You have the best cousins in the world. These little boys love you so much and are always so excited to see you and help you and play with you.

Here's Kaleb. Look at that awesome cheeser face!
Here's Andrew. He's helping you around the Splash Pad. Andrew always makes sure that you are being treated fairly and you are safe.
You are one lucky little boy!
