I think that you definitely have to be thankful for having children. For some reason they have the funniest way of making things a little bit more complicated then they need to be. Today after a pretty good morning Xander decided that he was going to have an accident and it would go everywhere. So after a bath and then a nakee baby running everywhere we then thought that it would be funny to bring mommy her glasses while they where on his face. After running around after him for a minute or two I finally got him and the glasses and then after the lunch feeding, book reading, bottle feeding, 2 diaper changes, and a rocking to sleep I finally had about an hour and a half of quiet and time to my self. And then for some reason the time goes by so fast that you don't get anything done. You just sit.I don't get it.

Thank you all that were involved in this Valentines day. The Night was wonderful, the Sushi was wonderful, the morning was wonderful, and the afternoon after was wonderful. I loved not having to worry about anything and having some bit of freedom for just one night. The time that we spent together was priceless. Happy first Valentines Day Maddy, Happy Valentines Day Xander and a Very Very Happy Valentines Day to my love.

Because he belongs to Jimmy and I, I think that we are a little biased but I really think that Xander is the sweetest little boy that I have ever seen. During the day he will randomly climb up on my lap and lay his little head on my shoulder or chest then out of nowhere he will look at me put his hands on my cheeks and sweetly and softly kiss me then hug me tightly and put his head back down and cuddle some more. He has to say goodnight and kiss the picture of Sally from CARS that is on his toothbrush every night, he tries to pick up Maddy and carry him around, he kisses him and hugs him goodnight all the time for naps and bed time, and he even shares everything that he has with Maddy. Sometime I even catch him trying to shove some peanut butter and jelly sandwich in his mouth and even trying to give him some water or chocolate milk from his sippy. He loves Jimmy and everyday that Jimmy comes home from work he runs to the gate at the top of the stairs and yells "dada home". Xander my love please don't ever change you are the sweetest little boy that I have ever met and you have the softest heart too.

Well tonight was another mile stone in my little Maddy's life. Not only did we accomplish one but two. He was so happy and didn't even realize that he was smiling at me and having fun and just rolled all the way over. A whole 360 how proud we are and we could never describe the feeling of watching a baby accomplish something so minute but so large. Then later on in the evening Jimmy wanted to see if he would fit in the bouncy and what he would do (even though I told him that he wouldn't fit). Right as we put him in he was all smiles as usual and started playing with the toys right away. He is now 5 months old and the time has gone by so fast. I feel like he just got better and not he is rolling over, trying to sit up on his own and kinda jumping in the jumper. The things that happen are so miraculous and happen so fast that I don't know what to do but try to hold on as fast and as hard as I can.

As you all know when you become a parent you get a whole new set of rules. Not only do you never really get time for you but if your married then you never really get time with your partner and you are destined from that moment on to have a new definition of fun. So last night after the Superbowl we gave the boys a bath together ( which we usually never do) and all of us had so much fun together. Xander thinks its so funny to kick his legs since the baby does and he throws water on everyone and laughs so hard. On a usual night Jimmy walks out of the bathroom with his clothes just soaked (that is the bonding thing between daddy and Xander, a bath every night. It's their time together). Anyway while washing to kids hair (Jimmy washing Xander and me washing Maddys) we both got the same idea at the same time. So here is our new form of entertainment for the family.
