Happy Monday!

This weekend sure was a blast! Jill and the kids came to town. Holden got to celebrate his birthday again! Yay, more cake! :). We just love family time. We played and played and played some more! Holden loves chasing around his cousins and feels like such a big boy.
I think food eating contests are in his future!:)

Haha! this is too funny. They were trying to get Holden to look and he wouldn't. Grandma got more pics of the three, so i'll update when i get them. They even took a bath together. I'm sure they'll love that when they are older! It will be great for a graduation or wedding slideshow. LOL.
We are also entered in a photo contest. So anyone who reads this make sure to Vote for Holden. Nina Cecilia~Creative Spark are amazing photographers. We just love their work and want them to take our family photos all the time. They capture moments to last a lifetime.

I absolutely cannot believe that one year ago today at this exact moment I was laying in a hospital bed waiting for the arrival of my little angel. Now i do remember that at this time I was having painful contractions in my back that felt like my body was going to shatter in to a million pieces. But around 7 o'clock I will be getting my epideral. LOL. The pain, the tears, the pushing, the post partum baby weight and emotions are absolutely worth it. Looking back at life without Holden is so empty and I am so grateful.
Holden had a sports themed party and a lot of his friends and family were in attendance. My little guy is so lucky to have such great friends and family. For his party we had walking tacos, hot dogs, chips, cookies, and cupcakes that I decorated all by myself! He was very lucky and got a lot of good loot. A little lawn mower, some hawkeye clothes, and so much more! What a lucky guy. The Cake smash was also a success. He loves frosting and looked like a tiger with all of the orange frosting all over his face.
We also had family pictures yesterday for his First Birthday by Creative Spark. Cecilia came over and did such a great job. Holden had fun, was a little testy at times, but still gave plenty of smiles. I can't wait to see how they turned out. I ' ll post some later. For now, here are a few pictures from the party :).
 Here are my cupcakes!

Poop Eater

Holden officially took a bite out of a kitty tootsie roll. Lucky for me, I was at work. Lucky for Nick, he got to wash the babies hands, mouth, and brush his teeth. Freaking gross. Why do little people put everything in their mouth. Rocks, sticks, dirt, ew.
This weekend was the Reed wedding. Wow, it was such a beautiful and fun time. Shelly and Nick looked fantastic. The venue rocked, and the company too! I told Nick before bed that I just love our friends and we are blessed to have so many people who care about us and that we care about. It's like one giant happy family.

Happy First Mother's Day to all of my friends who are new mommies. Looking back on the last 11 months of being a mommy make me so proud of myself for learning patience in trying times. But my most favorite is learning to love more than I ever knew possible. I am so blessed to have a healthy baby boy who will be one in 7 days! Love you Holden!

Hidden Treasure

Although this is my latest facebook status, I wanted to mark it as a memory here as well. My tender moment with my ALMOST ONE YEAR OLD! Tonight, after playing ball, eating peanut butter and jelly, and finally getting him to drink his bottle with whole milk(not formula yay) my baby and I rocked in his room. I love our rocking chair. Since he was a little nugget I'd sit in there with him. Exploring his face and staring in to his tiny eyes, or just watching him sleep. Brings a tiny tear just thinking how fast this year went. Now instead of me inspecting his tiny features, he's inspecting my larger ones. LOL! Oh how I love when my big boy picks my nose for me while I rock him to sleep! Ah, how their little brains work and explore things. I hope that once he starts talking I have lots more of these funny moments to share. My goal is to document all of the great things that he says and does.
I do know that someday I want to turn this blog in to a book. Working for a printer is great because they inform you of all of the exciting things that technology has to offer. I heard that there is a site that you can turn your blog in to a book. So yaay! So that is my new goal, to make it something we can keep and look back on and laugh at.
Signing out for the evening. I have laundry to do!!! Wahoo.

The Challenges of Motherhood

Finding time....finding patience...fighting stress....finding patience....

Today I'm stressed out! I know I can't be the only person in the world with these issues. Please help! I have an 11 1/2 month old 13 year old. If that makes sense. Holy cow. Mr. Independent, agressive, angry , elf. And ofcourse he is trying so hard to communicate and screaching louder than a tornado siren. Mommy instincts kick in, I try everything....Tylenol (teething) , diaper change (wet), milk, snacks, food, EAT A DAMN COOKIE. No luck. Marshmallows usually do the trick. No luck! What a frustrating day. Needed to vent. thank you!
