A mommy and her baby

So I really haven’t been blogging as much as I would like to.  But I do have a good reason.  This little man right here has been keeping me busy!  Judah is almost 11 months old ….  Crazy huh?   Just thinking about it makes me want to cry.  I want him to stay my little baby forever.
Well today was an exciting day.  My nieces birthday. Happy birthday Illianna.  We love you princess!  Anyhow today was busy.  Judah is knocked out in his crib right now, evidence of the busy day that we had.  Nothing like a princess party to make you poop out.  Here we are getting ready to walk out the door.
Update on Judah: he now has 4 teeth.  4!  Let me tell you that the past couple of days have been fussy ones.  Teething- fun time for any parent. Along with getting his teeth he is now standing and trying to walk along the couch holding on for dear life.  I know that he will be walking full force in no time.  My little baby is growing up.

Late last night


I must start this post by saying that I’m so thankful that Judah has been pretty healthy.  We survived our first winter with only a few colds.  No ear infections. No hospital visits. 

Well yesterday I noticed that Judah was just a little fussy and all he wanted was to be held.  Later last night he did not want to go to sleep and then the watery eyes started.  my poor baby, it was all down hill from there.  His nose started to run and then the sneezing started.  I felt so bad for him.  After trying to get him to go to sleep for about an hour I sat with him and rocked him for a while which helped for a while.  But I did not end up putting him to bed till about 3 o’clock this morning.  I was so tired. 

Then he woke up at 6 am and did not go back to sleep until almost 8. 

Mommy – Sleep = Zombie mommy  I need some coffee!!!!!

Baby number two…. in my dreams

Last night I had the craziest dream.  In my dream I was lying on a bed in this room and by my side was my mom and my sisters.  I look around the room and realize that I am in a dark hospital room with a giant belly.  I put my hand on my stomach and feel the squirming of a  little baby.  As I’m admiring my belly a doctor comes in and tells me that she will be giving me shot to get things moving apparently this baby was not coming on its own.  I close my eyes and when I wake I am still in this room but now everyone is congratulating me and telling me that I just delivered a baby girl via c-section????? Crazy huh?  No more chocolate chip cookies for me before bed.

Who knows maybe one day I will be on that show ‘I didn’t know I was pregnant’.  The plan is still to adopt a baby girl when Judah turns 3. But who knows.  There are days when I look at Judah and wonder how I can ever love another child like I love him.  I have heard that there is plenty of love in a mothers heart for all of her children.  I am so excited to see what God has in store for  our family.

10 months old

(Yes that is a pile of dirty clothes in the background…. don’t judge me :))
I can’t believe that we are only two months away from his first birthday.  Judah is now crawling and getting into EVERYTHING.  I remember saying “oh I just can’t wait to see him crawl” and now he is non stop.  Along with crawling he is constantly trying to pull himself up and he will use anything that is around.  Now this has made for some tumble time here in our living room.  But he is a tough little guy and just keeps it moving when he does fall.  Sometimes I look at him and I get a little sad.  I am learning that time only moves forward and it moves pretty fast.  I want him to stay little and innocent. forever.
