Happy Monday Darlings! Hope you had a GREAT weekend and a FUN Cinco De Mayo, for those who celebrated. 🙂

MiMM

Today is a MARVELOUS Monday {Thanks to the lovely Katie for hosting!} because…

1. I am DONE with my classes for this semester!! 😀 Hello SUMMER!! AND remember how I was stressing out a several weeks ago about completing & passing my licensure exams?….well I got all of my exam results back and I PASSED ALL THREE OF THEM!! 😀

2. Now that I’m done with classes it feels SO SO GOOD to just RELAX and do whatever I want. 🙂

3. On Saturday I got a little worried over the fact that my little man has been extra picky lately and I can’t get him to eat veggies and any type of meat. He LOVES fruit and cheese but rarely touches meat or veggies.picky Well I sorta got upset and super worried about it and began to really doubt my mommy-abilities. In fact, I felt like a complete failure as a mommy. 😦 But then I saw this sign somewhere online and realized that there will always be challenges we face as parents and no matter how difficult they are, these “obstacles” do NOT define who we are as parents. Half of the time we over-think and over-worry about the little things (which I know I’m completely guilty of) when we really should just acknowledge the positives and continue to persevere because any challenge can be tackled.

4. After a stressful Saturday evening trying to get my {teething} picky eater to eat, we ended up having a marvelous Sunday Funday in D.C. and enjoyed some good eats {YAY!}, which included yummy ICE CREAM!!

And after much praise and admiration…somebunny ate all of his eggs AND oats…and afterwards  he DIDN’T even want many blueberries which is usually ALL he ever wants. 😀

A week of FIRSTS…

Just when I think I’m getting into a regular routine and plan on blogging more…BAM! something else pops up…..thus is life though right!?

So this past week has been a surprisingly fun, joyous and absolutely CRAZY and a bit hectic…but hey! we’re surviving!! (insert *I’m a survivor* song here! lol)

1. A sweet someone (A’s Momo) surprised us on Thursday night, flying in from TX just in time for little man’s birthday! 😀  It was TOTALLY unexpected; we are usually the ones doing the surprises, but this time we were the ones completely dumbfounded when we saw her at the front door.

2. My little baby turned *1* on Friday and we had his sweet birthday party on Saturday! 😀 (More birthday pics to come!)

3. Following his birthday party, little man got sick and when I say sick, I mean really sick! 😦 He ran a fever (for the first time ever) causing us to make a trip to the ER. 😦

4. It actually *SNOWED* but enjoying it was the last thing on our minds. Aiden didn’t care much for the snow the last time we got a brief dusting, so I figured this weeks snow wouldn’t be very impressive to him either, plus we were NOT willing to risk him getting even more sick, so the winter wonderland was no big deal in our casa.

5. After many doses of children’s tylenol and motrin, my little love bug’s fever subsided, BUT then he got this random RASH all over his body. Again, I FREAKED OUT and we rushed to the ER once again. Thankfully, they said it was just a side effect of the fever and should go away in a couple of days. (which it slowly is, thank goodness!) {first time parent over reaction  maybe!?….YOU BET!}

6. Mommy’s homework was been placed on the back burner since my little munchkin has been a nursing & snuggle bunny all week long, and you know what?….I’m not even phased by it. Baby comes first! School work will eventually get done.

7. I love love love breastfeeding; I’ve had my ups and downs with it, but I swear the ups have completely outweighed the downs and this week further enhances my adoration for it. I’ve nursed A more these last couple of days than I have in months. The only thing that would soothe him was me nursing him and with that, I’d nurse him at little ache and cry all day and all night. Although, I felt as though I was nursing a newborn, I loved that I could make him feel a bit better. ❤

8. And lastly, on a sweet note, yesterday was the first time I’ve had blue bell ice cream here in VA! 😀 The commissary nearby has started to carry BLUE BELL and a friend dropped some off to us last night!! 🙂 Blue bell makes me happy!

P.s. Blue bell makes EVERYTHING better!

Now that my little honey bunny is feeling better, this mommy has to get back on her school work. Happy FRIDAY!! Hope you all have a wonderful weekend!! ❤
