perfect time of year for some firsts..

To me this is the best time of year. Its a time when family get together, the seasons change and we start to get snow, Christmas lights go up on peoples houses (including ours) :) This is the first year that we have put lights up on our house, i think they came out great. I think im most excited about the lights and our tree. lol I cant help it christmas lights make my soul smile. 
When jr saw our tree for the first time, he was like wtf is this? looked at it and went on about his business. lol The first time he saw it was during day light so i didnt expect him to be too excited about it, but when he saw it at night his eyes got big! it was too cute. i wish our lights blinked so that they could be more entertaining, but it is what it is and he still enjoys it. 
The most important first that weve had here recently is Jr holding his bottle now!! i still have to prop his hands up on it, but after that we are good to go! I cant believe how big he has gotten. he had a great thanksgiving hanging out with his granny and other family members. From what im told he ate very good that day (i was at work.) His first holidays are going great, i just cant wait until he understands it foreal!

just a moment in my mind..

 This is our babysitter. lol just playin. this boy loves him some pachino. My computer is finally working again, so now i can post my pictures again. right now jr is sleeping, so i figured id take a moment to blog a little bit. 
I made some white chicken chili tonight, and mel loved it. yay! its getting cold out so its soup and stew type weather to me. So im just glad that i made one that he likes. now to make stew. 
i think jr is hitting another growing spurt. hes been doing alot of sleeping when were just hanging out at home. its like he eats and hangs out for like an hour then he just starts getting cranky and  finally passes out. if he is in   a growing spurt, im ready. ive already washed his 6-9 month clothes and hes actually been wearing some. i need to get him some more socks. i dont really know where to find any at. I cant recall ever seeing any when i worked at target. All i know is that my little fat foot baby needs some more socks.
Sr is watching the game and im getting sleepy so this is where this blog ends. lol

Its funny how jr is 6 months now and im still having these "omg this is really my child" moments. Hes hit the stage now to where all he does is blow spit bubbles. its so funny. he babbles alot too. my grandma said he said da-da today. sr and i had a bet as to who he would say first. when she told me that i was crushed!! lol we ma-ma-ma-ma-ma in the car, and when we hang out and he went ahead and said da-da first! aint that a blip! i would have been ok with him sayin pa-pa first, but da-da? youve got to be serious! lol sr is too crunk about it. hes also figuring out those legs of his and turning over more. hes been kicking his legs alot and kinda scooting along. hes growing so fast its crazy.

there was a question game going on facebook the other day. if someone asked you a question you had to answer it in your status. someone asked me what the best part about being a mom. my answer was the toothless grin that he gives me. especially when i pick him up from my grandmas or when i go to get him in the morning. i just am so greatful for him and amazed that this small person is mine. omg this is really my child. oh man. i love my life. but im out, gotta get to work by 7.

take time to count your blessings.

I can say that when it comes to my son, i am truly truly blessed. im not trying to brag, i simply just want to share how god is so good, and how he will always provide the things that you need. I have a walker, swing, jumperoo, exersaucer, bumbo and now a high chair. Thank you Lord for those blessings. All of the clothes that i have for jr have been given to me. i havent had to buy anything for him even with the season change. i have been blessed for real with him. <3 thats all. Peace

i love this feeling..

i love this feeling of being a working mom. i got my first check today and i love that feeling. ive missed working. sounds crazy i know but its true. it really helps that jr has a wonderful woman to watch him during the day while im at work. i love the fact that im tired because im going to work. i guess getting this first check was just a nice sigh of relief! 
i also love the feeling that i get when my now 6 month old son smiles at me. he completely melts my heart and has me wrapped aroung his finger. lol happy 6 month birthday jr! mommy loves you!!
