A Night Away

So this weekend the mister and I had a staycation. We left the bambino with Grandma and Grandpa and Randy and I had a wonderful dinner and we went to our old haunt Mort's and we stayed at the Marriot downtown in Oldtown FABULOUS. I do love a good martini and I had several. Yay to having a few drinks and no baby to worry about. This was my first night away from the Wy Wy so it was a little hard for me to leave him. I did only have one breakdown and cried right before we went to sleep. I can say it was probably good for Wyatt to have some time away from us also. Plus it is nice to have been Randy and Rachel, husband and wife, as opposed to mom and dad even if it was for only about 16 hours. On the plus side before we left to go to Randy's parents house and drop Wyatt off he took 2 steps by himself. I am excited walking looks to be in Wyatt's near future.

As Wyatt quickly approaches the one year mark, it reminds me of how excited I was at this point last year in my pregnancy to have my son. I remember going to doctors appointments and getting to see him in the sonogram. Thinking to myself good god when am I going to have this kid. I was super ready to be holding my baby in my arms and not in my uterus. Now he is so grown up and starting to stand on his own soon he will be taking his first steps and I just am overcome with emotion at times. I can't believe he will be one year old only 30 days from now. Crazy mom that I am I have been planning an extravaganza for about two months now. Our house is being overrun with bday party supplies. I think to myself that I am going overboard on birthday stuff, but then I say to myself you only turn once and it is a most momentous occasion.

Well here's to you Wyatt as we celebrate 11 months today I can not wait to see how much you change in the next month. Will you be walking, will you have said your first word???? Who knows what you will be doing but as your infancy starts to end and your days of your toddler years begin I will be there thinking of the days when I couldn't wait to meet you, how much you have changed and what is next to come for you my little man.

Busy Bees!!!!

Sorry it has taken so long for an update but here is what is new with us. We went to Colorado and visited Wyatt's Great Grandmas and we saw Jenna (wyatt's cousin). It is so fun to watch her interact with him. She talks to him like he is a big kid and understands everything she is saying. I just love it and it is super cute. We have been having lots of summer adventures like swimming at the pool. Wyatt is getting so comfortable in the water he tries to put his face in, we have also been to the zoo and we helped move Randy's parents closer to us. Here's a few pics of us. Also keep Randy's boss in your prayers he is very sick.
