Smile For the Camera!

You are so photogenic at such a young age. People say you look just like me; that you have my eyes. I have to say I agree with that. We do look a lot alike. That may change as you get older though, nothing wrong with that. I just hope you don’t get too old too fast. You had a doctor’s appointment today. You had to get 4 shots, it broke my heart but it’s for your benefit. As you lay in your crib sleeping, I always wonder what you’re dreaming about. I also wonder why you wake up so early in the morning, even if you go to bed really late. I guess you’re an early bird like your mom.

The new camera (Panasonic DMC-FH27 Lumix) takes wonderful and high-quality photos. I found it refurbished and restored to factory quality onWalmart, the best $119.99 I’ve spent. I will be taking photos of you everyday — or at least try to remember to take photos of you everyday. You make me very happy and honored to be your mother.

Well, today is the last day of the year. I’m looking forward to all the years to come with you in them. Love you sweetie!

5 Things I Didn’t Miss Before I Had Children & Don’t Miss Now

All the baby sites have lists of things they missed before they had children. Well this one is going to be different. There are things I didn’t miss before I had a beautiful son…and don’t miss now.

Being alone. I was always alone wishing I wasn’t. Especially on those nights where I prefer having someone next to me while it was raining cats and dogs outside my window; sounding like the world is crashing around me.

Not having anything to do. Let me tell you, my life was boring before I had a baby. Now I feel like I have a purpose in life. I have someone to take care of. I have something…to do to put it frankly. I’m a busy body so after a while of doing the same old thing everyday drove me bananas.

My flat ass. I was shapeless before I had a baby. My baby gave me hips and then some. I still think that my butt is mostly flat. It’s just not as flat as it was.

My aching back. I know, you’re thinking, isn’t that backwards? No, for me it isn’t. My back used to kill me on an everyday basis before I had a child. I couldn’t bend over without yelping in pain. Now, my back don’t hurt as much. I can bend over and pick something up with ease. I guess my son kicked by back — back into shape.

Something to smile about. I was always frowned up. I never had anything to smile about; unless it was funny of course. Now, I’m always smiling and giggling. My son puts a smile on my face without even trying. It’s beautiful.
