5 by 5 and a 7!

5. What are the 5 things that make you most happy right now?

  1. My son! How can he not? All he has to do is flash that little gummy grin and i'm wrapped around his baby finger.
  2. My cats. The fat, fuzzy, fluffy attention grabbers. Who wouldn't want to snuggle with a warm purring ball of fluff?
  3. My mommy facebook groups. It's so nice to have other mommies to talk to, even if we never meet i'm glad they're there.
  4. Watching my husband and son together. That's all there really is to it.
  5. My husband. He can be a screwball sometimes and drive me crazy, but I love him. He's my dork in shining armor.

On another note, Caden is 7 months old today!

Parental Units

3. Describe your relationship with your parents.

I'd say it's a lot easier than it used to be. We live 2,000 miles apart and we don't really talk much. Not by choice mind you, just that time gets away from me and I tend to forget things.
I like to think of my mom as one of my best friends. I look just like her and we have a lot in common. For instance, a nice cup of tea, a good book, and a purring cat in your lap. She's got an awesome sense of humor and a bit of a wild streak too.As for my dad, well, he's different. Nowadays I guess it's sort of an easy understanding. Especially since I got married and moved away. He's not an easy man to describe but he is easy to understand. He likes you, he makes fun of you; he doesn't like you, not a word. He is cool though, tattoos and a harley and hard working blue collar kind of guy.

I do miss them a lot, especially now that I have lil man. I'm hoping to get up north and visit them more, especially when he gets a little older.

Two to Threes

2. Describe 3 legitimate fears you have and explain how they became fears.

  1. Losing someone close to me. I don't think there's a real how to it, it seems like a natural human fear many people have.
  2. Not being able to have more kids. I come from a family of fertile myrtles but secondary infertility can still happen.
  3. Large crowds. I'm not really a people person and a lot of people make me nervous, especially speaking in front of large crowds.

I'm not really afraid of clowns, spiders, snakes, or any of the "normal" fears. I have no clue why. I mean spiders and snakes and creepy crawlies do creep me out but afraid of them? Nope, not really.

Just you

I haven't really written anything in a while, poetry, short story-wise or anything of the sort.
I was holding Caden, rocking him back to sleep, cause mommy-magic is the best...

Someday you'll be too big for this, for the kisses and cuddles. 
You'll stay for a second then run away on little boy legs, to swing on the swings, climb up a slide, or go off on some big adventure.
For now i'll hold you close, rocking you to sleep and enjoying your sweet baby smell. 
Just because you are amazing, wonderful, and brilliant.
You are my muse, you are my inspiration.

Random firsts

Big things like holidays and little things like going to the beach become a whole new ball game when there's a little person in your life. I've read and heard time and time again that these things become new to you again because it's new to them. It's a bigger brighter picture. :) 

Things I can't wait for: 
  • His first ball game. Whether it be baseball or football, whether he's just watching it or playing it, the little boy joy will be there because let's face it - little boys + sports = love
  • Christmas, he was only 3 months old at his first Christmas. It's going to be so much more fun when he knows what an awesome holiday this is.
  • His first wrestling match. Daddy already watches it with him so it's pretty much fated that once he's old enough he'll be rocking his favorite wrestlers gear.
  • Halloween, he was barely over a month old at his first Halloween so when he can finally go trick or treating? Oh yea! Candy here we come! Plus I love Halloween, with the decorations and the dressing up in awesome costumes. My mom used to take us kids on a big family outing with our aunts and cousins to Salem, Ma. We'd get all dressed up and walk around, have lunch, the adults would have a few nips ;)...There's no better place to be around Halloween lemme tell ya!
  • His first 4th of July, We usually watch the fireworks from a distance down here so hopefully they won't scare him. My family however have a front row seat up north, after a huge bbq with family & friends. Then we'd sit back and watch the traffic go by since there's usually a festival right down the street with live music and such. Good times.
  • His first trip to DisneyWorld! We live 8 hours away but once he's walking...look out Mickey here we come!  
  • SeaWorld: turtles, petting dolphins, flamingos, and oh yea, Shamu :)
  • He first train ride. Alas, there are no trains this far south (Miami and points north) so it'll be exciting for him, especially when he knows what trains are.
I'm sure there are many many more I can't think of right now but just as he'll be excited, I will be too <3
