|Around here...we potty like rockstars!|
We celebrated St. Patrick's Day on Saturday and not in the usual form that we would have a few years ago. Instead of wearing crazy amounts of green and heading to a bar in Ballard for some more green beer, we played it low key - very low key. At the last minute we went over to Bianca and Bob's for some cornbeef and cabbage. Bill, Carson and I were just sitting around enjoying the day when we realized it was St. Patty's Day and decided we wanted to do something (meaning even a trip to Red Robin would have been great). It was a nice laid back way to celebrate the "Luck" of the Irish with the Williams and they're baby Brook. Over the last 4 1/2 months...well actually 13 months our lives have changed so very much, but in the best way possible. Bill and I spent the weekend just hanging out with our boy and enjoying every single second with him. In fact I loved my weekend time with Carson so much that when I dropped him off at his baby-sitter Andrea's on Monday (whom I adore and trust to nth degree) I cried like a baby the whole way to work and then again when I got there - first time I had done this by the way! Thankfully Andrea brought baby C down to my work and we all had lunch together, it was great and totally helped!!
As my baby keeps growing and making daily milestones, I just watch in complete awe. He has my attention, he has my heart. Tonight while I was rocking him to sleep I let him sleep in my arms for an extra 45 minutes or so and just looked at his little hands and face and kissed them about 20 times. I indulged in all of his sweetness and have been doing this a little more lately. Because someday this boy will be a grown man, he will play his first baseball game, get his driver's license, go to a prom, probably won't like me for a minute (or two), he will talk back, maybe wear a ring on his left ring finger, and someday he may even have a baby of his own.
My baby is healthy and HAPPY...smiles galore! I pray that he will always be happy - always be healthy...may those big smiles continue forever! This "baby" time is fleeting and to be able to enjoy these precious moments to the fullest - I am lucky, oh so lucky.
