What do you get when you are a ninja? That's right you get a ninja baby!!!
I am constantly grooming my sweet little man, some of the things I do he doesn't particularly like for example, he hates when I clean under his neck, but we gotta do it! Today while I was trying to get an eyelash off his cheek he decided, he has had enough!!
He grabbed my hair with his toes in a ninja death grip and kinda held me in a head lock under his legs, which are soooo strong!! I'm like whoa! He thought it was hilarious, and started laughing! When I finally broke free I was like Holy Moly I better be more prepared, especially since his moves are becoming more advanced. They started out little pocks to the eye or jabs now they are full on combo moves. lol.
Does it mean I still won if I got the eyelash off?
Hears to all our little babies growing so strong and to all the ninjas of the world! :0)

Rylan and I walked through the hallway to go surprise this dear friend and I felt an ache in my heart, I wondered how many visitors these people got and wondered about each of thier lives and what their stories were. I pray they do have many people to show them love and that they continue to be our everyday angels. Although we missed seeing my friend, we got to visit with many of the other little ladies. You could see the pure joy they got from Rylan and I, and all we did was just take a quick moment to say hello, wish them a happy day and share smiles. Of course it helps to have such a handsome baby to share with the world, but it was a simple way to share happiness. My heart felt full, it reminds me to stay humble, stay kind and to slow down a bit, make sure not to get to caught up in my own thoughts but to look up out into the world and find moments like these.
Then today when my mom and I were at lunch, this elderly couple was sitting behind us and because Rylan was being fussy I apologized to them. The man said "no need to apologize dear he's a gift from god and so are his cries, you have waited for him a long time, it's your time now and he is perfect!" I was totally taken back. Then he blew us a kiss and left the resturant. My mom and I were like wow, it's like he knew my story!! Such an amazing moment to share with a stranger. Thanks for reading this! I hope you are all having a happy day too

My days are full of poops, being peed on, spit up, drool, dirty laundry, squeals and thrills and I couldn't love it anymore :0) I love being a mom and find so much joy in the little things. I can't think of anything more special then waking up to a beautiful smiling face. It is so wonderful to see this face, and the many smiles that come from him.
Although it's a lot of work, it is truly the most rewarding experience I have ever been lucky enough to do. I love staying home with my little man. At first it took some adjusting because my life before being a mom was full of running around, shopping for clothes, shoes and makeup getting hair and nails done, going out dancing, working a
9-5, I would leave the house in the morning and wouldn't get home until late in the evening. Nowadays I rarely leave the house at all. lol I do my own hair, I don't get my nails done, and any extra money I have I spend it on my sweet baby. It isn't really a sacrifice these things come without any second thought and with the realization that many of things I thought were so important before really weren't. Some days do come with some struggle and especially lately with his teething process in full swing. My patience is tested but then I hold him against me and his crys settle, or I sing to him and he smiles, or I tell him I love him and he coos and it totally melts me and I have to ask myself is this really my life? Am I really this blessed? I can't believe I have this sweet little baby and a husband who always holds my best interest at heart, who supports his family completely and allows me to live my dreams out loud! Its a miracle and I won't forget how special it is. I hope no matter what it is that brings each one of you happiness you find it and each day is fulfilling.
