Mother's Day

Well, I got to celebrate my first Mother's Day. It started Friday night when Todd took over "baby duty" for the weekend. This included waking up with him and changing diapers.

Sunday morning I woke up around 7:30 (that's sleeping in these days). Todd made me breakfast, eggs and bacon. Carter gave me a card, in which he and daddy came up with a list of 43 reasons why they need me. It was super sweet and made me feel very loved and needed. We then got ready and headed to my parents where we met for lunch. We then spent a few hours at my parents house, where Carter crawled all over exploring a new territory.

On our way home, Todd bought me a DQ Blizzard. It was a nice relaxing day and all I had to do was relax and play with my son. It was a fantastic first Mother's Day.

So fast

I can't believe how fast my munchkin is growing up. In seriously a matter of a month, Carter has learned how to sit up and lay down by himself (going from laying to sitting), crawl, and now pull himself up onto everything and cruise. Where did my tiny little baby go? With all of these new achievements, the separation anxiety is getting much better. He does alot more independent play and can crawl to where I am, so I dont have to be holding him and carrying him all the time.

We had his 9 month pictures done this past week (I know I know, he is almost 10 months). We used Portrait Innovations this time instead of Sears and I was MUCH happier with how they turned out! The price was about the same, if not better, and they actually took their time with us and got the right shots. Lots of props, back drops and toys for him to stay busy.

Well that's about all for now. This is my first Mother's Day with an outside baby (I was pregnant last year). Looking forward to what Carter has in store for me (grin).
