Our Memorial Day

Chris has been out of town for the past 2 weeks and we both had Memorial Day off work so we finally put in some flowers in our front yard (it's only taken us 2 1/2 years of living in our house)! I really hate yard work but planted some of the flowers and actually liked it! Chris worked really hard putting everything else in, thanks babe! And thank you to my dad for helping us pick out the flowers!

This is a vent post about being a working mom, so if you don't want to hear it then dont' read it!

I'm sick of packing the daycare bag every night, waking up early, hurrying to get ready in the morning and dropping Conner off at daycare, commuting to work, working 9 hours a day and missing Conner every single second of the day, driving home in traffic at night, picking him up and hearing about his day knowing that I didn't get to be part of it, hurrying home to make dinner, trying to find energy to play with Conner, running errands and cleaning the house. And then the very last part of the day I finally get to spend time with my husband but I am usually just too tired and fall asleep!

This past month has been really hard. Conner is growing and getting more active and I feel like I'm going to miss something! I want so bad to stay at home and raise him! I hate paying for somebody to watch him! I wish that I would've thought about being a stay at home mom years ago and made it work. I feel like Chris and I are doing something wrong. I look at blogs of people who are stay at home moms and they travel and go on vacations and I wish that could be me (I know that's bad). It just sucks!

Alright, vent over, back to work! Thanks for listening!

8 Months

Only 4 months of formula left and yes I'm counting! Conner is 8 months old! These have been the quickest 8 months ever! I wish that I could say that Conner was crawling or walking or running, but he isn't yet! He is dying to move but just can't figure it out yet! I feel bad for him sometimes. I think that he is just going to start running and skip the crawling and walking!
At 8 months Conner:
~Can say dad (pretty sure he doesn't really know he's saying dad though)
~Can pull him self up when you hold his hands
~Loves food! He loves pudding, yogurt, orange and apple juice, honeydew, cantaloupe, pineapple, cheese, eggs, sausage, chicken, fries and anything with sugar in it!
~Likes to click his tongue and blow bubbles
~Is wearing size 3 diapers
~Is wearing 12 month clothes
~Still loves to watch TV
~Loves to walk in his walker. He loves to walk in the kitchen over to the stove and pull my towels down!
~Giggles when dad says his name

We love you Stinker Bum!
