Bobby is 10 Month Old

Robertito is 10 months old and I cannot get over how much his is growing and learning on daily basis.  He has his two bottom teeth and the top two teeth are making their way in.

Bobby is such a happy-go-lucky baby, he has to be with Nate roughing him up all the time.  In the past two days, Bobby is balancing more and standing.  He has stopped eating baby food and is more interested in the food that me and Nathaniel are eating. 

I feel so blessed that I get to spend this time with both the boys, watching them grow and learn.

Bobby is 9 Months Old

This handsome baby is 9 months old.  Bobby is crawling, lifting himself up, and being utterly adorable. 

Bobby has my father's name and I am reminded of what a doctor said to me at a doctor's visit for my father, "I have more time than money".  Isn't that the truth?! It is my reminder to slow down and love every moment with my growing children.

Happy 2017

The new year started with a bang for me and the little ones.  We made a new move that has made us happy and free.

It is a new year with new beginnings, endless possibilities, and a fresh start. 

Happy New Year- bring it, baby! I got this!

Bobby is 8 Months Old

What?!  Baby Bobby is 8 months old?!  The little guy, I mean big guy is 19 pounds and wearing one year old clothes. (Look at his socks.)

Admittedly, I am tired and worn out.  I just do not sleep enough.  Some days are a blur and I fear that I may not be appreciating the time I have with my babies.  They are only going to be small this one time and I have to remind myself to take each moment in. 

Once things settle a bit more, I will share with you the drama of what being the executor of my father's estate has caused.  The holidays are hard without my parents and more time needs to heal my wounds.  

If only you could walk a mile in my shoes you would understand my silence. Don't worry my friends- I will get my spunk back... when I sleep more.

Bobby is 7th Months Old

My precious baby boy Bobby is seven months old.  

No words can explain how much joy I feel being a mother, not only to Bobby, but to all my boys.  While I type this with sleepy eyes, I know that this tired is only temporary.  I know that my boys are health and able bodied. I am grateful for their health and the never ending "mom's".

No lie, this Thanksgiving is hard without my parents. It is the first Thanksgiving without both of them here.  At times, I want to cry (like now) because I miss them.  Then I remind myself of my family. My boys. My family. My sister.  That is nothing to be sad about.  I remind myself how thankful I am to have health happy children.  Life really is good.

Great Joy

Before I had children, I would often hear parents talk about what great joy their children brought them.  It is only when you have children yourself do you truly understand the true meaning of having your heart swell with joy when you witness your child grow.

The moment Bobby rolled over the first time, I cried.  I even asked myself why I was crying.  It was so amazing watching him learn something new and to see the expression on his face.

All by himself, my fearless child Nate, climbs the slide and slides down.  He walks into the school building like a big boy and rides train rides.  As I saw the train turn the corner with my baby, well I guess I should say toddler, I realized he is growing and being more independent.  I know I will always cherish his tiny waves and hugs. No matter how tired I am, I love to hear Nathaniel screaming for me, "Mom".  I never ever want that to stop.

I love being a mother and raising my children.  There are times when I am not sure what to do to help or teach my children, but my instincts always kick in and lead me in the right direction. That way is straight to my heart with joy.

Bobby is 6 Months

The Big B is six months old.  He is finally in his crib and sleeping upstairs with his big brother Nate.  Finally, I am getting more sleep and playing catch up with the Zzz's. 

 I may have forgotten to mention that Nate started a Mother's Day Out program/pre-school two days a week.  This gives me two days with one-on-one time with this little guy.  It is always a joy to see him laugh, smile, and play.  I am also the mom that buys a chalk board to write the "First Day of School" and then forgets actually write it and take the pictures.  Well, it is a memory I will have to save in my heart.  

Every post I vow to post more often.  Daily, I write posts in my head but never find the time to sit down to type them up.  Even though I am a stay-at-home mom, I do not understand how people how the time to post or even participate in so much social media.  My choice is to be a mom. In my spare time and when the boys get off to school, I will post as time allows.  

Until then, I am enjoying watching my boys learn and grow.
