Just a Quick One

We are getting ready for our day. I paid all of our bills, put money in savings, made a plan for everything I need to get today, and afterwards, I’m pretty sure that we will have enough to put more in savings. Do I wait until next payday to do it, or do I go ahead and bite it and do it now? Jordan is racing this weekend, so I may have to wait until after that to see how much I can put in.

Conner’s birthday party is this Saturday. Going to make fondant tonight, cake tomorrow and leave Saturday morning. Kylee is staying at her grandparents til Thursday, so it will just be me and my lil’ man. I’m determined to get him walking next week! I will have tons of time to work with him. On top of that, I will be getting things ready for my yard sale in May. I just have to gather things and take them to the unused basement. Anyway…Lots of things to do today. Gotta go!

My Birthday Boy!

It’s Conner’s first birthday! It’s hard to believe that one year ago, I was lying in a hospital bed, giving birth to my second kid. A bouncing baby boy, and what a boy he has been. I couldn’t have asked for a better second baby. With my daughter, I was up all the time during the night, and that was something that I wasn’t really looking forward too again. Ever since he was just a few weeks old, he would sleep almost all night long, with the exception of some nights.

He loves to eat and won’t ever turn down food. He may spit it out, but he is always willing to try it. We went to IHOP today and we gave him some fries. Well, he ended up throwing them up because he shoved too many in his mouth. I was the good mom and caught it in my hand. I really wasn’t expecting what all came out. I thought it would just be fries. Anyway…Like any mom, I went to the bathroom, washed my hands and continued to eat, while Yaya couldn’t finish. hehe…It really was quite disgustingly funny.

He’s so been so happy all day, and really, he is just a happy little boy. He gets into everything and has to investigate any open door or cabinet. He loves to follow his big sister around. He says dada, mama, yaya, baba and jabbers more everyday. I’m so excited to see what the next year brings us. I love my baby boy, Conner J.
