QC Bald Eagle Days....

This weekend we went to the QC Bald Eagle Days. The Niabi zoo had a show where they brought out all kinds of fun animals for the audience to see.
Thanks to knowing one of the zoo keepers, we were able to go backstage and meet the penguin. MJ was in awe and stared the whole time. It was sooo cute!

He loves this pink rattle...not sure where it came from.

Better late than never???

MJ's first Christmas was amazing! Even if we did get snowed in on Xmas eve, we did make it to see (almost) everyone on Christmas Day.

Happy Half year to my precious Baby Boy!


I cant believe you have been with us for 6 months already. Turning our lives upside down and making us not just a "couple" anymore but a family. You are growing into such a fun lil boy. You laugh when we laugh (even if you're not sure why), you cry when there are too many new faces, and you love to quietly observe when there is a lot going on. Christmas through your eyes was like celebrating for the first time. Watching you open gifts and play with wrapping paper kept everyone mesmerized on Christmas morning.
Its been 6 months since I have put on work pants and been in a classroom. I never thought I would be a "stay at home" mom for any length of time but everything changed once I held you. My Florida mom friends all told me "you HAVE to stay home if you have the opportunity." Wow, they were right! I am lucky to have the option to stay home for a year with my boy to watch him grow and discover. I love you, nugget :)
