life's for sharing.

remember how i could watch this
over and over?

remember how it makes me cry?
(i know, i'm weird...noey you're with me right?)

remember how i wish that life was a musical?

in salt lake city...

with me there...
knowing all the choreography....

public announcement.

if anyone see's a middle aged man*
driving around salt lake in an old blue buick
with sticker letters on his back
windshield that say "this is why i'm hot",
tell him thank you from me for
making my day.
why, oh why, didn't i have my camera?

*either this guy is the funniest person ever,
or he, indeed, thinks that that is why he's hot...

thank you. thank you. thank you.

to our wonderful friends
and family for:

all the prayers.
hospital visits.
cupcakes (amazing, noelle).
phone calls.
and all the good thoughts that were
floating around in the universe, for
our sick little boy.

and of course a huge thank you to
the extremely talented doctors
and nurses.

five days in the hospital
with rsv was awful,
but everyone has been
amazing in supporting
us and making us feel loved.

side note:
as much as he hated all
the wires and get-up,
my heart melted at how
silly he looked sporting
the hospital pj's and
nasal canulas.

we are so very happy to be home.

this is me.

when i was pregnant with bennett, i was terrified.
i was worried i would get bored staying home.
worried about not having time for myself.
worried things would change between me and my davey.
and of course, worried i wouldn't be a good mom.

now the jury's still out on the "good mom" part
but, i was dead wrong with everything else.

i adore how dave is with our little boy
and that makes me want to be better for both of them.

i wouldn't trade staying home with b for anything.

and even though i will always have my selfish moments
i can't help but lose myself in my little b.

i used to get embarrassed when i told people "i'm just a stay at home mom"
but now that i have a glimpse of what it's like; it's the most important thing i will ever do.

it may seem simple
and stupid but
this is me.
i am a mom.

thanks davey, for giving me the best gift that, in the beginning, i never even knew i wanted.

and thanks to all the ladies in my life for showing me what good moms are all about...even though some of you aren't moms yet. (you know who you are)

our little b is sick today.
so we're in pajamas.
drinking a lot of juice.
sleeping. reading. sleeping. coughing. sleeping.

sick, but still smiling.
