flowers for no reason....


...are the best kind of flowers! josh surprised me with this beautiful bouquet yesterday when he came home from work. we're also going on a date tomorrow :) these things make me smile.


my head is filling up with lists of things to remember and take for our trip to canada. traveling with a baby will be quite different than the many trips we have made before. thankfully, my mom has most of the big things we'll be needing while we're there, including a carseat and stroller. we bought a cheap little umbrella stroller today just so we'd have something to push him in when we're at the airports. he's much to heavy for the baby bjorn now.


by the way, i've been meaning to mention that we will be at gardner park on saturday, july 14 in the afternoon (i wish i could give more of a specific time, but it will all depend on tristan's nap i'm afraid) anyone who reads this and wishes to come out and see us is welcome to. its very difficult to see so many people in such a short amount of time, plus be able to spend quality time with my immediate family, so this way we'll be able to see many of you at once.


i can't believe that tristan will be 6 months old tomorrow! i look at pictures of him as a newborn and can't even tell that he is the same baby! this half a year has definitely been the most challenging time of my life, but also the most rewarding. he has his 6 month checkup and shots on monday, so i'll let you know how much he weighs...i'm guessing at least 20 lbs. he is becoming quite a pro at sitting up on his own, though he took quite a tumble the other day. i looked away for just a moment as he was sitting on the bed, and he managed to bend forward, and fall headfirst off the edge of the bed, landing on his head! i know that every child ends up having a tumble or two, but it still shook me up. the days of leaving him alone unsupervised are ending very quickly!

I would love to come to the park but alas I will wait and see you the next day:)
If there are any 'baby' things that I might have that you need while you are here just ask and I can take them to your parents place for you if you need.

I know the feeling of being shook up. My daughter rolled off the couch when I was sitting right beside. I think I cried more then she did:P

Those are gorgeous flowers!

I haven't admitted this to many people (I didn't even post it on my blog and I usually post EVERYTHING on my blog!)....I used to sleep with Scout on my chest in our recliner when she was a newborn. One night when she was about 5 or 6 weeks old, somehow she made it to the edge of the arm and rolled right off into the floor. I woke up just as she was rolling off, but couldn't catch her in time. She wasn't hurt at all. In fact, after I comforted her (and cried and hugged and kissed her and told her I was sorry), I took her clothes off and searched every inch of her skin for bruises. She was perfectly unscathed. I, however, felt like just about the worst mom in the universe! I think I have finally forgiven myself, after hearing so many accounts of babies taking a tumble off the bad. It seems like sort of a rite of passage.....altough mine happened a little early. LOL :)
