Baby boy, you are growing and changing at a rapid pace. Each day, I feel like you are mastering a new task. You absolutely love to bounce. If you could eat, sleep and play in the Jolly Jumper you would be there 24/7. Even when you are not in the jumper, you have to be bouncing around on mommy's knee. You love love love Toby our dog - you are always on the look out for that little white fluff ball - you giggle as he runs by you and you and your brother love to play games with him. Your giggle is becoming louder more boisterous; I can't get enough of it.
You have cut your two bottom teeth. Let's just say that you haven't been the happiest camper around here. It has been making for some long, sleepless nights.You have been doing a great job exploring new foods. You can't seem to get enough squash and let me to tell you, you really lose your cool when you want more.
You still love to give mommy cuddles and please do not ever get over that. You are sitting up all by yourself. We just went to your 6 month check up and you weighed in at 17.5 pounds. I think you are going to be like your daddy as you are in the 95th percentile for height and the 30th percentile for weight.
Keep growing and smiling my little one. You make mommy so proud.

Well, I am not one for surprises but the hubby pulled off a pretty good one yesterday. Growing up, I spent most of my time at the ice arena. I love love love figure skating. Over the years, I have not been able to hit the ice as often as I would like but now that the kiddos are getting older, I have had the privilege of introducing them to skating. With that in mind, the hubby decided to plan a surprise party at the skating arena where he rented the ice for an afternoon of fun.
I won't get into details on how he got me there but let's just say it wasn't an easy task and there may have been a lot whining and complaining about taking the kids out in the cold etc. but once I was there and I was surprised to see family and friends gathered to celebrate this old gals birthday, I quickly whipped on my skates and had an afternoon of laughter and fun.
Thank you to everyone who came out and helped my hubby prepare for my birthday shindig as it truly meant a lot to be surrounded by so much love. It was great to see lots of you enjoying a passion of mine and for those of you who did not hit the ice, maybe we can convince you to try it sometime soon. I loved watching our babies head out on the ice with smiles plastered on their faces. They soon will be skating circles around this old girl. I think we may have to make this a yearly tradition.
A huge thank you goes out to the best hubby this girl could ask for. You pulled it all together to make an awesome afternoon and pulling off a surprise, as we know isn't an easy task when it comes to surprising this momma. Love you all!
P.s. I may or may not be a little sore today!
