Things I'm loving right now...

*Every morning when I make my tea, Barclay wants a little in his cup. We sit at the table and talk while we sip our tea. Don't worry, his is mostly diluted with milk.

*The fact that little Sullivan likes to eat and be snuggled all the time:-)
He's a good baby. As in doesn't cry for 10 hours straight like Barclay did, but the child likes his milk and he likes his mama, and I couldn't be happier! Why wouldn't I want to take a break every 1 1/2 to 2 hours to a.gaze at this precious little boy who changes every day, b.get actual calories taken out of my body;-), c."have" to take a break from other unpleasant things like laundry, cleaning, wiping poop off my toddler's bum.
A lot of people are like, have you gotten that baby on a schedule yet? Have you stretched him to eating every three hours? No and no. I feed him when he's hungry and I enjoy it every time:-)

*That Barclay tells me I'm beautiful:-)

*That Barclay follows every single sentence with Mama.
Examples..."Take care of me, Mama!"
"I don't think so, Mama."
"I want a piece of candy yes thank you Mama." (run ons are his thing:-)

*The fact that I am going to become an AUNT soon! All my sisters have been aunts for years, but tomorrow is the first time I will be! My sweet sister is being induced tonight with baby Rainy! I am just giddy thinking about the beautiful journey my sister is starting.

*Weeping cherry trees. Seriously, every time I see one (which is about every three feet) I just gasp in awe! They are so romantic and so exotic. In fact, I did a photoshoot on Friday and the guy proposed under one!

*Settlers of Catan. I've been playing it for years but recently became re-addicted. It's so nice to have something to do at the end of the day that involves actually talking to other humans vs. watching a movie.


*Organic Chocolate Milk. And it has to be this brand. I have tried non organic and I have tried other organic brands and this is the only one that tastes like fireworks to me. Since the baby was born, I go into my fridge and take swigs out of the container every time I feel that breastfeeding STARVING feeling, but don't have time to eat. I know. Super healthy...

*Walking. I used to detest walking with Barclay in his stroller. But two things have changed that this go round...
1. I live downtown now! In fact, in less than a minute I can be on a sidewalk with endless entertainment. I've started walking more than two miles nearly every day. It's fun, I like exercising. I like that both boys are silent for nearly more than 30 minutes. I like it when cars pass me and look at me and think, "that is such a cool, hip, downtown mama" :-)
2.I saved and saved and asked for Christmas and we got a double BOB stroller. It is like pushing butter! It makes all the difference. Plus I am counting the fact that we canceled our YMCA membership towards it;-)

*Even though it drives me nuts sometimes and it happens at the WORST time (like trying to nurse and check out all my groceries at dinner time last night), I love that Barclay is clingy to me. I love that he wants me to "hold him like a baby" and "feed him milkies from my boob boobs)...which I have NOT done:-) I love that when I am editing photos or folding laundry, he always finds his way into my lap.

*I love that since we moved this winter, I am just now noticing that I have the most beautiful flowers popping up around our house. Some of my favorite flowers too, like Daffodils, Tulips, and Flocks. AND I didn't have to plant any of them! I hate gardening.

Well my lovey and clingy little one has found me again so I must go!

  7. I love Settlers!!! BJ and I played it the night we brought EG home. It's what we do when we really miss each other and want to do something...other than watch TV. I had no idea anyone else even knew about that game!

    P.S. You're such a good/cute Mommy!
