This past month was so exciting. I only work two days a week now, and can't say that I am too upset about that since I get to spend another day with you, and have you all to myself. You are trying so hard to crawl. You have mastered going backwards and getting stuck under things, but you can't quite coordinate you arms and legs. I have been working with you and encouraging you to crawl, but I am not so sure that I won't regret that very soon. You don't seem to have a fear of much so that concerns me a bit as you become mobile.

I come downstairs and this is what I see.....
Daddy had her hat on, and they literally had every single toy out and making noise. Isn't this how kids develop ADD? I was overwhelmed with all the noise! Guess you had to be there, but it was pretty amusing!
This lion was mad about something and was roaring so loud, I thought it was "staged" and coming over a speaker system.
This is really how close we were (there was plexiglass between us) and she was stalking a boy behind us. It was really quite creepy. She would follow him with her eyes where ever he went.
This was our greeting from the Elephant. One of these elephants died two days after we were there.....how sad. Now they only have one.
Macie got a great nap in at the Zoo!
Macie and Daddy. Do you see the Baboon in the back? Don't worry, Macie didn't either.
We celebrated Mother's Day last Saturday and it was very nice. Both of our families came over to celebrate. We cooked out, and just hung out and enjoyed the day. You would think with it being my first Mother's Day that I would have been snapping pictures constantly. Nope....not one single picture of our Mom's, not one single good picture of Macie and I (took two and they are absolutely awful of me- someone needs to take me under their wing and do a makeover or something -so I will not be sharing them). I did get some of Macie, Joey, Kate and Ryan. On Sunday Phil was amazing and spoiled me rotten. He cleaned the house, fed and changed diapers for Macie all day. I took two, two hour naps that day! I don't remember the last time I took a nap! Thanks hon, you are the best!

She said it for the first time today. She kept repeating it until I busted out the video camera!
Phil was trying to get her first words to be Mama Mia, but I am not at all surprised it was "Dada" since she is definitely a Daddy's girl.
As I am typing this, she's saying "Dada, dada, dada.....".

Before I was a Mom, I never tripped over toys or forgot words to a lullaby.
I didn't worry whether or not my plants were poisonous.
I never thought about immunizations.
Before I was a Mom, I had never been puked on.
I had complete control of my mind and my thoughts.
I slept all night.
Before I was a Mom, I never held down a screaming child so doctors could do tests.
Or give shots.
I never looked into teary eyes and cried.
I never got gloriously happy over a simple grin.
I never sat up late hours at night watching a baby sleep.
Before I was a Mom, I never held a sleeping baby just because I didn't want to put her down.
I never felt my heart break into a million pieces when I couldn't stop the hurt.
I never knew that something so small could affect my life so much.
I never knew that I could love someone so much.
I never knew I would love being a Mom.
Before I was a Mom, I didn't know the feeling of having my heart outside my body..
I didn't know how special it could feel to feed a hungry baby..
I didn't know that bond between a mother and her child.
I didn't know that something so small could make me feel so important and happy.
Before I was a Mom, I had never gotten up in the middle of the night every 10 minutes to make sure all was okay.
I had never known the warmth, the joy, the love, the heartache, the wonderment or the satisfaction of being a Mom.
I didn't know I was capable of feeling so much, before I was a Mom .
