Happy Mother's Day!!

The only requirement that I had for Mother's day is that I spend the entire day with my son!! And that's just what we did!!

I tried to get a picture of us together...
He was busy watching tv though and couldn't be bothered for a good pic!

Then we went to the park...he loved the swings!! And Ben was happy pushing him all afternoon..

And to my Mom,

Thank you for everything you do for us! I wouldn't be who I am without you leading by example. I admire your strength, tenacity and perseverance. I love you!

Tommy came to visit!

Since I wanted to spend my first (er, second) Mother's Day with my son, my sister, mom and I hung out the Sunday before to kind of celebrate. Stacie brought Tommy and Ben to play with Charlie..and of course he LOVED it!

This Charlie sharing a box with Ben. He wasn't playing in it, but once he saw Ben in it he had to be in it too!
But he did NOT want to share his changing pad! (fortunately we caught Tommy before he rolled off!). All I could do was was soo cute (sorry, Tommy, your cousin really does love you!)

And here he is in his first bubble bath! We can't let him have bbubble baths anymore though because it makes his excema flare up... poor baby has sensitive skin :( just like all the other kids in the family.

So he is 14 months old now and still not walking...but we aren't too worried yet. He isn't behind by any means and is ahead in some of his fine motor skills. He'll get there!

I am still running and making great progress! I ran 9 miles this weekend and it felt great. Two weeks till the big rce! I hope I am ready...but either way I am crossing the staring and FINISH line! I don't care how long it takes me..ok yes I do, but I am trying to be realistic in that I am just getting comfortable doing distances again. So we'll see....
