Toddle Along Tuesday ~ Mommy & Me

Today’s TAT theme is Mommy & Me. It’s still hard to believe that I am a Mother!

I can’t believe that this was me just 16 weeks ago. We were inseparable for 38 weeks and 5 days! Being pregnant was such an amazing experience and I will always remember the first time I saw him on the monitor, the first time I heard his heart beating and when I felt him kick and move.

In P’s nursery, we hung a decal that said, “Your First Breath Took Ours Away.” I didn’t realize how true that was until my breath was being taken away hearing him cry for the first time. I was lying on a table, drugged up with an oxygen mask on but none of that mattered. I didn’t see a single person in the room expect my husbands eyes and didn’t hear a single thing in the room except his little cry. Best moment of my life!

At just 10 weeks old, my relationship with P is still growing. I treasure every moment, even the stressful ones, with P. Even though there are always chores to be done, nothing seems more important that cuddling on the couch. I can’t believe the growth I have seen with him over the last 2 weeks. He is starting to look around and I think he recognizes me and Rob! We are getting a smile here and there, every one making my heart melt. 



Mommy & Me Movie

I was so excited about this amazing opportunity for Mommies! Even with today’s technology and inventions, there are still some things that are difficult for mom’s to do. One of which is going to the movies. This is such a cute idea and we had so much fun. I met up with two other Mommies that I met at meetup.com. In addition to us, there were about 12 other Mommies and even a few Daddies there. An AMC employee was in the theater and gave us goodie bags. She also stayed to help adjust the lights and sound to our liking.

I wish I had a camera because during the previews, all three of us had our little ones on our laps. They were all looking at the giant screen in amazement! It was adorable! P watched for a little bit and then got fussy so I BF him which was super easy to do in the seat. He then passed out on me for the remainder of the movie. Some little ones were fussy but no one minded since we were all in the same boat.

The movie was great, a little sad for a PP Momma though! I cried several times 🙂


I Love Pinterest!

It is no secret that I am in LOVE with Pinterest! I found the site about 2 years ago and it has been a constanst obsession ever since. There are so many cute ideas and where I found my inspiration for maternity and bump pictures, nursery ideas, newborn photos, month milestone photos, getting our house organized and so much more! After  recent pin I decided to share some of my favorite baby related pins I have found.

It was hard to pick my favorites so check out that rest on my Pinterest site. Just click on a picture to go to the website.
