I declared today my “day off” and Bryson, being the wonderful husband that he is, complied with a happy heart. I needed some time to just BE for a few hours. To just sit and drink a skinny cafe mocha and listen to some tunes at Starbucks…to journal…to run some errands…to just recharge. It’s good for me to have a morning “off” every now and then from the daily grind. I think it makes me a better mom. I also like that it allows Bryson and Nash some quality father/son time which is so precious for them both. Heck, having time away makes me realize how much I miss Nash and how much I really do enjoy being a stay-at-home mom. I think after 8 months of being a mama, it is finally sinking in that this IS my full time job…and I am loving it.
Nash gets more and more fun each day! I love that I get to be with him all day to watch his silly personality come to life…laughing, babbling, crawling, discovering, and playing. Not to mention a good cry and heartfelt scream every so often when he falls trying to stand up on his own! He is so daring, always pushing the limits! He plays hard all day long and is constantly on the go! I am thankful that I get to be a part of it all.
My favorite Nash thing recently is his obsession with music. He lights up when I turn on the iPod and instantly starts dancing and clapping his hands! Even in the grocery store the other day he heard the music over the pa and started dancin’. And man, he can really shake it! 🙂
Here are some pictures of our little mover and shaker.
PS: Last week’s post was lame, so I am loading lots of pictures this week to make up for it! 🙂
Crawl baby crawl….
Check out his form…
This is the HILARIOUS face that Nash makes when either something itches on his face during meal time and he knows he isnt allowed to touch his face during meal time…or he thinks you are about to wipe his face. Cracks me up every time!
A great view of the lone tooth (although it’s neighbor is starting to push through!)
“Hmm, these stairs look high, but I think I can climb them…”
“Dad, you are just SOOOOO funny!”
Another attempt to be “artistic” in my photography…
“Yeah, I totally love to break dance…check out this move!”
I love to fly…
Doesnt everyone like to sit back in an old rocker and relax…
Nash is getting good at sticking out his tongue…
Okay, that’s all for this week! I am working on a little video of Nash, so check back again soon!
