Wow, can’t believe it’s May already! Last Sunday was my first Mother’s Day and I must say, it felt surreal. I feel like I have to pinch myself sometimes to believe I have a family of my own now. I found this lady, Lisa Leonard, who designs the cutest customized necklaces, etc and I knew that’s what I wanted for my Mother’s Day gift from Jeremy. We had our names added to it and I love it!
Jeremy and I have been worried about Ollie and how he seemed to be a little behind with his development, ie-crawling, standing up…but my friend Jamie told me to just start making time for him to be on the floor a lot. So, we got rid of his Jumperoo *We loved that thing!* and made sure he played on the floor a lot. Well, after just two weeks he is now crawling instead of slithering everywhere, pulling himself up to standing position, and he just seems to be into everything. Kind of exhausting, but still, it’s amazing to see this little person, who was just 8lbs 10oz a year ago, explore the world! He wakes up sometimes in the middle of the night and we hear him on the monitor banging his head against the crib rails. Yikes! I don’t know if that is common, but I have no idea how to correct that problem. My mom said I would do that too as a baby. This morning I woke up and he was playing in his crib instead of crying for me to come get him.
I need to go out and buy some things for his birthday party. It’s in 2 weeks! I’m going to be an emotional wreck, I just know it! haha. I’m going to hopefully make him a banner to go around his high chair with either his name on it or something creative. I can’t believe we all survived the first, most difficult year for new parents. I’m proud of Jeremy and I and how we came together this year. I’m forever grateful to him that I was able to stay home with Oliver for his first year. =)
