Why I LOVED my day today so much....




one of the naps he took on me today. I love watching him sink deeper into his nap.

Now this is bliss.

for ME!

I took these with my iphone about 2-3 minutes apart.

listening to the rain.... Husband home from work because of the holiday....lots of ginger tea....taking my online Mondo beyondo class ( yes I took it in October and loved it so much I am taking it again! )and finishing up my 20/20 e-course ..... loads of laundry....chatting with friends through e-mail....catching up on my favorite blogs...all helped make this day pretty wonderful, warm and cozy....

but the best part of all is watching my baby boy nap and feeling him breathe on my tummy.

precious.

still in denial that we are inching closer and closer to his 1 year birthday.......I was looking through "old" photos of him at his birth and through the first months and I cannot believe how time is flying by and how blessed I feel to be this little boy's mama. It sometimes still shocks me that I am a mama....like "how did I get here" kind of moments. Not in a bad way - just in a "wasn't I just in college in Minneapolis wearing vintage dresses and combat boots - thinking my two nose rings were cool?" " wasn't I just living in Portland with Marcella and Joel, working at Portland Center Stage and complaining about something while NOT helping my housemates clean up the place?" or wait " wasn't I just living in San Diego working with Miguel Ruiz and helping organize his power journey's to Teotihuacan? " and YES all of these memories from my past are real - I've had MANY different versions of this life and I must say that this one is my upmost favorite.

I love you baby Max.

thank you for napping on me today ( twice! )
