4 Months

Nathaniel is now four months old. 

 He found his feet and he sucks on his toes.  He also found his hands and has started to grab things and pull his own hair.

That is the exciting stuff around these parts. More later, after my nap.

My First Mother's Day

This year I have a mix of emotions on my first Mother's Day.  I totally and utterly miss my mom and wish so much she was here to see me and my baby.  I love that I have a bonus mom that loves me the way my mother loved me.  I love being a bonus mom and having two big boys who can hug me and enjoy the cookies I make for them.  And mostly, I love that I am a mom and I have a new baby that has found his feet and wakes me up at 5:30 in the morning to play with his new discovery.

Not to be morbid, but I love celebrating my mother and coming up with new ways to decorate her. Nothing is more lovely than a bed of rose pedals.  

Mother's Day is also special in a bike ride way because it is the day that kicks off the ride across America. On this day back in 2009, I started the journey that made me a new person with bragging rights of riding my bicycle from La to Boston.  Keep ridin' on my fellow CrossRoad riders.
