School's Out For Summer!

Well , it is official! I have until mid-August to do nothing but hang out with my kid. I'm so excited!! I was blessed to have an amazing group of sixth graders this year, so while I am sad to see them go, I am thrilled to have summer off. Here's a few of the things we plan on doing:

1. Just hang out mom and son. 2. Sleep!!!! (By the way, sleeping with Mr. H on my chest is one of my favorite things about being a momma!)3. Do fun things like swimming and going to the park. This picture is from Hunt's first time to swim in Granna and Poppa's hot tub. Precious!! (For more swimming pics visit My Momma's blog)

Just to catch everyone up on Hunter's developmental stuff, here's what he is now doing. A few weeks ago, while Momma was at work Hunter rolled from his back to his tummy. He has gotten very good at that. His Granna videoed it so Momma could see when she got home. Of course, Momma and Hunter had a big talk about how he is supposed to wait until Momma is home to do his firsts. I think we got it all worked out now!! :) Hunter is almost ready to sit up on his own. He is so close, but still pretty wobbly! It won't be long! Hunter got to come up to school last week and meet the sixth graders. They thought he was pretty awesome! They really liked his tiny toes! This morning we woke up to find Mr. H sleeping on his tummy. He has now learned how to roll over during the night. It was a little shock for Momma and Daddy! Have I mentioned that we are in love with this kid?! Hopefully, I can post more now that I have daytime to do things too! Look for more posts to come! (By the way, typing with a sweet wiggly man in your lap who has learned to love the keyboard is not as easy as it might seem!)

My First Mother's Day

What a blessing yesterday was. I have a whole new perspective on Mother's Day now that I am a momma. Several times yesterday I felt blessed to the point of tears coming to my eyes. My sweet baby boy's 5 month birthday just happened to fall on the same day as Mother's Day. Oh, I can't put into words how blessed I am. I am so thankful for the miracle of life and love. I have a precious wonderful husband and a baby that is amazing beyond words. What more could a Momma ask for?! Thank you Lord Jesus!

Again, I see God's hand at work in my life. I pray continually that I won't miss any of Hunter's first while I am working. This weekend, I was home for two precious moments. Friday night while I was sitting at my computer, I hear this sweet little raspberry noise and look down at the vibrating chair and Mr. H, with very sleepy eyes, is blowing wet, slobbery raspberries and having a great time doing it! What a sweet and silly thing! His cheeks get full and his little lips pucker up and he goes to town just blowing away!

Hunter has a new favorite game. His daddy has taught him to play peek-a-boo. Hunt just laughs and laughs his big old belly laugh and I just sit and giggle right along. At first, Jimmy would cover Hunter's face with his blanket and ask "Where's Hunter?" followed by pulling the blanket down and saying "Peek-a-boo!" and Hunter just laughs! Now, Mr. H covers his own face and pulls the blanket down and waits and watches for us to respond. What a fun little game! You can't beat a Mr. H smile!

What a wonderfully blessed weekend. Thank you Father God for your infinite blessings. Again I say, I am blessed beyond measure!

Happy Hunter

My new favorite sound is my Hunter laughing, which happens often. He has the best laugh in the whole world! He is so happy! No one can make the little man laugh like his daddy! Enjoy! I dare you not to smile!!!!
