Happy Mother's Day!

Happy Mother's day to all you mom's out there! Hope you have a relaxing day and are spoiled by everyone! I was awoken to handmade cards and Kevin cooking French toast. I also got a dandelion bouquet yesterday for Mother's Day I was told :) 

Unfortunately, I am sick with a sinus cold and poor Kieran has a sore throat and ear infection.  I had him at the clinic for 3 hours yesterday waiting and he was as good as gold.  I was so impressed! He's got some antibiotic in him now and seems to be doing better today.

I've had some medieval battles going on in my living room.  Kevin made the boys swords and shields out of cardboard and duct tape.  It is so cute (and yes, potentially injury causing, lol).  Must get some pictures to scrap before they get destroyed :)

"Bridget, what's a dog say?"
"woof, woof"
"What's a cow say?"
"woof, woof"
"What's a cat say?"
"woof, woof"
Too cute!! 
She's also still giving the cutest hugs and kisses.  Slightly less cute at 5am when I want her to go back to sleep, but still pretty cute! And she's *almost* taking steps.  She's getting really balance and standing on her own a lot.  Won't be long, but I'm not in a huge rush!

I finished a couple of LOs this week, yay! I got Kieran's "This Boy" LO done:


Journaling reads: Just turned three (yahoo!). Is my best napper.  Loves balls and is very sporty. Makes me laugh. Has a dimple that sometimes gets him out of trouble! Starts preschool in the fall. Loves Franklin stories. Gives great hugs. Is a "big boy". Is a very picky eater - loves pancakes for supper. Is loving, kind and polite. Frustrates me at times. Is sensitive. Sometimes cries to the point of driving me crazy! Is a sweetheart and my reason to be!

And I did this LO with this month's DT kit from Scrap That! I've had this LO brewing in my head for awhile and these fun papers were perfect for it!  


Journaling reads: May 5th, 2009. I knew it was coming but wasn't sure that would be the day. The last day that I would nurse you, ever. For awhile I had been working on weaning you. Over a period of a month or so I started putting you down for naps without nursing. Then I stopped nursing you through the night when you would wake up. But, for a few weeks after that I still held on to that one last session of nursing you before bed in the evening. It was so hard to let go. You are my last baby after all. But, in a week and a half Daddy and I are going away for a couple of nights so I knew I would have to stop. On May 6th, Daddy put you to bed. You did rebel a bit (but heck, so did I!), but you were pretty good. Only a few tears and Daddy stayed until you fell asleep. I'm still happy to get up with you at night and rock you to sleep if you need it, at least I can hold on to that as long as I want. And I will, for sure! I'll never be one of those moms that wishes she had held her babies more...I'm getting all the snuggles I can while you guys are little! As I look at you peeking out of this pirate ship, I can't help but think that it won't be long before you will look at me over your shoulder as you run off to school, as you graduate high school, as you leave home, as you walk down the aisle. It won't be long before you peek at me from around your own sleeping baby's head. I'm sure time will pass like the blink of an eye! So, can you blame me for hanging on to your babyhood? Please forgive me as I smother you with snuggles and kisses...you'll understand someday when you're a Mommy. And please, don't grow up too fast!!  

Can't wait to crank out a few more projects with this kit, but I might need to clean up my scraproom first so I can get in there!  Hope you all have a great day!!
