Sweet Boy....

How did I get so lucky??? Every morning I get to wake up to this smile and every morning I feel so blessed when I see it:). Our little man is really proving to be such a sweet boy. For the most part, he is happy and easy going. Sometimes we feel like bad parents because he really likes to watch TV. Not that we just set him down in front of the TV to entertain him, but while Richie and I will be watching a show we will look down and realize that Don is watching with us. We are definitely a TV household. Richie and I don't really like to travel much, we hardly ever go out, so TV time is kind of our entertainment. We watch a lot of movies and have certain shows that we like to watch together. So I guess we are just training Don a little early:).

Don makes me sooooo happy...with a smile like that, how could he not?????

Bigga Boy!!!!

My baby is getting so big already. I love watching him grow, but it also makes me a little sad because it seems to be going so fast!!! I always knew I wanted to be a mom some day, but I didn't realize just how much I would LOVE this job:). Everyday my little man makes me smile.

My Mom and I thought it was so hilarious to put Don in the doll's high chair:). It was just the right size!!!
He looks so big!!!
My sweet boy just snoozin'.
He loves sitting in his real high chair because he is able to sit up right a little more. I think he likes to look around:).
I just thought these little socks looked so cute:).
And lastly, a shot of his chubby little legs. I love those legs so much, but I guess I love everything about my little Don so much:).
He really is a blessing. Sometimes I look at him and I can't believe that he is mine. He was well worth the wait:)...practically perfect in every way!!!

Happy Birthday Babe!!

Last month (which I can't believe I am already saying that!!!) we celebrated Richie's 29th birthday. For about six months out of the year he catches up with me in age. Meaning that I only get to be a cougar and rob the cradle for half of the year:).

Rich's birthday, July 12th, fell in the middle of the week. We had been really busy the last two weekends and so Richie requested a low key birthday. He actually said he didn't want to do anything except hang out at home with his baby:). Of course I had to ignore that and make him a special dinner and do some cake and ice cream.

I love this picture below...Don is like, "Dad, what are we doing???"
Richie's parents and Natalya also had to ignore the request for a quiet night and came over to join us for some cake and ice cream. Here are Rich and Nats enjoying some delicious Parmesan chicken...thanks, Beth, for the great recipe.
My little family:)...they make me so happy.
Natalya cracks me up in this picture. I guess she didn't want to smile for the camera, but she also wouldn't get out of the shot...who knows...gotta love seven year olds:).
It was a low key birthday but such a great night for a great guy. He said the best gift that he had was little Peanut. Richie is such a wonderful dad and husband and it was great to get to celebrate him for a little bit.
Don and I are so blessed to have you babe!!
