Mother's Day

My first Mother's day was great!  It was more of a Mother's weekend.  Saturday Nick took me shopping to get some new clothes.  We also got a couple things for Tanner, of course. And I got to talk to my parents on webcam.  Sunday started out early, because Tanner doesn't believe in sleeping in.  We went to Panera for breakfast and then did our weekly grocery shopping trip.  We had Dickie's BBQ for Lunch and Red Robin for dinner.  (We have to eat at all these great places before we go back to Oklahoma and have NOTHING around!) 

Tanner got me a very sweet card, and signed it as well.  And Nick bought me a few kitchen things I had been eyeballing for a while, a dutch oven and an immersion blender.  

But best of all was the cuddles, snuggles, and kisses I got from my little man.

He fell asleep holding my necklace that says, "Mom".  

I have absolutely enjoyed being a mother for these past 5 months.  I think about this every single day, I know this is what I was meant to do.  I seriously couldn't imagine a life without by boy.  He is my everything!  Little bits of me and little bits of my soul mate all in one little body.  He is incredible and I love him so much.  Words just can not describe how I feel.

5 Months Old!

It's so hard to believe 5 months ago I was laying on an operating table and this little bundle of love made his first appearance.  

Today he is a growing, thriving little man.  He laughs, smiles all the time, loves to play, and is so strong!

This month he began solid food, went swimming for the first time, rolled from his back to his belly, and sat unassisted (10 seconds max, so far).  He also has a great daytime schedule, as long as I don't screw it up too much by going out.  

My love for Tanner just keeps growing and growing.  And when I think my heart will explode with lovey dovey goodness all over, it just grows some more.  I am so truly blessed.

Since we are temporarily in San Antonio, we don't have our glider to take his comparison pictures in.  But this will work. 

His hair stands up on it's own now.

His hands must taste good as they are always in his mouth!

He also much prefers standing to sitting.  He stood himself up on his own here.  I guess he wanted  to look out the window.

Big boy!


He has my dimple!

Sleepy Boy

I know I've been a slacker again with blogging. Since we've been in San Antonio it's been a little more difficult to have the computer set up and easily available to blog. I am working on trying to get that taken care of. I hope to get a few blogs up soon! Until then here are a few pictures of my sweet sleeping boy that I've had on my phone.
