Sunday Fun day at Grandma's house

This past weekend we went to my mom's house to visit with Desmond. My step great grandfather wanted to meet my little man. He's been sick and hasn't been able to leave the house. Therefore we thought it was time to go out and visit! Before we went to my mom's place we went to church for the first time with Desmond! The best part was that he got to go the church with his soon to be God parents. He did really well! Well he actually slept the entire time! 

Straight from church we went to my mother's house. There Desmond got to spend time with his aunt, uncle, grandparents, and step-great grandparents. It was nice to go out and spend some quality time with family. 


Dave was the happiest I have ever seen him been. He loved Desmond and wanted to take many pictures with him!

Megan's birthday celebration at the Boordy's Vineyard!

My best friend Megan, is year older and a year wiser!
This year we celebrated her birthday by going to get a pedicure and then going to a vineyard. It was my first glass of wine since June of 2012! Boy was it delicious! Nothing like some white sangria from Boordy Vineyards. Go drink up!
I was at first really worried about drinking wine while breastfeeding... I was originally going to pump and dump but luckily I looked it up and talked with other mommies! You are allowed one glass of wine  per 2 hours. I brought a bottle just in case I drank more than that. As soon as we arrived to the vineyard I breastfed Desmond while the gang went to do the tasting. I later joined them once they were done. I drank my nice, cold, fresh glass of wine. It was yummy!  It was a cool day so Desmond had to be bundled up and inside a blanket. Megan held him the longest. We ended up giving him a bottle not because I was drunk but because it was just easier than breastfeeding in the cold! You wouldn't believe how much of a work out he is.. just by holding him! We ate some cheese and crackers with our wine. I cannot wait to go to another vineyard or to at least have another glass of wine. Any takers?!?!


He spit up on my shirt right after this picture was taken!



Megan may look like she's feeding him under the blanket but he's just hiding because of the cold!






Love this picture of Desmond and his soon to be God parents!

Desmond's 2 months!

Desmond turned two months on April 15th, 2013! Here are some pictures leading up to the date!
Ps- 2nd month is easier than the first month! He started to smile and sleep longer at night! 
After this first bath! He loved it!!!

Week of Adventures!

This week was full of great adventures! This week was the first time I left MARYLAND! Yup I am brave... I did it all by myself with Desmond! On Monday I took Desmond to work to meet all my coworkers. ( I work in DC) There were no kids this week so I felt safe bringing him to work. He did really well being held by lots of people. Sheryl was the first one to hold him. She is a baby whisperer! I can't wait til she's a mom because she is wonderful with kids. I can tell she is going to be a super mom! Matt had the pleasure of holding him next after I cleaned his diaper of course.  From there everyone one wanted to hold him. He was a lucky boy! The car ride back was miserable because he cried most of the way home. It didn't help that I hit lots of traffic. He normally sleeps in the car but he had a wet diaper and that kept him up. NOT FUN! I felt super bad and wanted to pull over to making him feel better but I didn't so that I could make it home fast! 
That night Marian came to visit and keep me company
On Tuesday Marian and I went to the mall for some much needed shopping. It was great having a girl to gossip and shop with! You wouldn't believe how bored I get at home sometimes! Although this doesn't mean that I miss going to work...
 On Wednesday we went on our next adventure! This time I left Maryland and entered VIRGINIA!  We went to Virginia to see the SIMS! As always things were always fun. Johanna made us a yummy chicken chili. She is such a good cook! YUM!  Eleanor was super cute as always. I saw her a month ago and already she grew so much. She was crawling and laughing all over the place. Johanna likes to call her a monkey... Good thing I am obsessed with MONKEYS! I love Eleanor and so did Demond. They are going to be BFF! 
On Thursday Marian left :( but I know she will back soon... (In the fall right??!?!) That same day I had my mommy group. I love meeting up with those great mommy's!  If you are a mommy and aren;t part of a mommy group.. JOIN ONE! It's great! We have each other to ask questions and hang out when we have cabin fever.  This was the third time we all met. After our meeting some of us went to the mall to eat lunch.( Then I went shopping again by myself because I didn't want to go home. HA!)  It's always nice to talk to people with kids because they can relate. Things definitely change once you become parents. The people who can understand and relate to you are other moms.  I love my group! What a great week! 









I love his smiles!

Who wants a playdate?!?!
