I know this is a bit late, but I still wanted to post about my mother's day. At daycare, Macy had gone to the Seed House and picked out a flower, which they put in a pot that they decorated (I had intended to take pictures of it, but that didn't happen yet). This was very sweet and she was so proud of her creation and excited to give it to me. Later, I was going thru her papers from school and found that she had also made a mother's day card. This is the best mother's day card I have received to date. It has the standard poem and handprint inside, which is very nice and sweet, but the part that was so special to me is that Macy actually wrote 'Happy Mothers Day' on the cover. I am so proud and it is just so stinkin' cute that she ran out of room and had to finish the word mother on the next line! This is a keeper for sure!
We knew this was coming sooner or later as it does with pretty much all kids. Actually, I was pretty surprised it wasn't way sooner and way worse knowing Macy. I was vacuuming in the living room Sunday evening and, as she likes to do, Macy got out her little Dirt Devil to vacuum along with me. I guess it wasn't cooperating in going exactly where she wanted it to go and she was getting frustrated, so she busted out a "sh#$@!" Not once, but twice... just to make sure we heard it I guess since the vacuum was loud. Now I have to admit... even though that is one of those key moments where your kids are watching you to see how you react, it was really hard not to bust out laughing because she used it in the right context and everything! Then she lied when we asked her where she had heard that word... she said from her preschool teacher - right! So we had a talk and she got to spend some time on her bed thinking about it. Not sure how much good it did, she is a hard headed kid!
I know I'm a little late with this post, but life gets busy and this blogging thing can suck up a lot of time.... and well, sometimes going to bed just sounds better than getting on the computer! Anyway, Holden officially turned 1 last Wednesday and we had his party the previous Sunday. It is truly amazing to me that it has already been a whole year since we were introduced to our baby boy.
Mommy put the cake a little too close and I grabbed a finger full!
The blue evidence is on his chin, but now he's dumbfounded at everyone staring at him and singing... as well as the flame of fire... hmmm.
On his new Lightening McQueen ride.
Macy needed much more coaxing at this cake stuff than Holden, but I guess he's had more opportunities to practice than she did. He was practically dancing in his chair before I even gave him his cake, he loved diving right in! Seriously, could he look any more innocent?
Straight to the bathtub we went!
He is such a sweet, cuddly little guy, but is already starting to show an ornery side. He is the biggest momma's boy and starts to cry if mommy leaves his sight for even a second. Poor aunt Kathy is determined to be able to hold him without him crying even if bribery is necessary! This is all new to me as Macy was never much of a clingy child, but mommy doesn't mind.
He isn't walking just yet, but is doing everything else and getting into new things every day... such as unrolling the roll of toilet paper and splashing in the dog's water bowl, fun! He also likes to throw food down on the floor and watch the dog eat it. I figure that's a win/win.
At his 1 year check up he weighed in at 20lbs. 4oz. which I think they said was around the 14th percentile and he was 28.75" long. So.... he's growing, but he's still our little guy!
