It's official! I'm a mommy!

Ok, so it has now become official. I am mommy. As I was walking with Jessica the other day, I noticed my foot was hurting & said "Oh, Mommy has a blister." Now, she was holding TJ, but I was talking to her! Oh well, if I have to be something, being a mommy is pretty darn great! James has been home since Monday and it has been great to have him home. This is always true, but espescially so this time because TJ has had an ear infection in both ears. I must say, however, that I probably have the most mild mannered child ever. He barely cries and instead of not sleeping at all like mom said I did when I had ear infections, he is still sleeping great and when he cries he can usually be calmed down within 5 to 10 minutes. I am so blessed! I am looking forward to TJ's first July 1st! While I am very sad his daddy won't be here for it (he is going back up to work on Sunday), I know we'll still have a good time. Of course, there is the traditional hot dog roast and fireworks at my parents house on the psedo-first (the 2nd) for any and all who would like to attend! Well, speaking of being a mommy, my little man is just waking up! Gotta run!

K, so I'm a total dummy, here is the cake. I really need an oven thats level!

Ok, so life here has been totally insane for the past few weeks. On the ninth, I had a wedding cake I had to do. (pic included) Then I've been recovering trailer cushions for Jeanan, which normally would take no time at all, but I've been incredibly sick and TJ has been very needy. He got his shots on the 14, so that made him really happy. Ha ha ha. He's also been totally spoiled so we can't put him down for more than 20 min without him crying. However, we have been working on that for the past few days and he is getting better. He doesn't really sleep during the day, so it makes it difficult to get things done. He sleeps through the night, which is great, but then only sleeps for 10-15 min during the day. I've posted tons of pics on facebook, so take a look there to see more than the ones here!

Today was a happy day. I found out that I now weigh less than I did before I got prego! Yee haw! Lets keep it going!

So here is TJ's 2 month pic and a couple of other cute ones.

Life here has been pretty crazy during the past week. I haven't felt well all week and I'm still very sore from having TJ. So, I've spent quite a bit of time at the doctor. As if that weren't enough, I'm doing a wedding cake this weekend and I have a set of tent trailer cushions to recover for someone. They initially said end of June, but then called on Thursday and said they would like them for this weekend if possible. Fortunately, I told them it may not be possible this week. However, I'm still feeling very pressured to get everything done. Thank heavens for my parents. They have been awesome about helping me with TJ while I get things done. Sometimes I feel like I'm taking advantage of them. I feel like I'm his mom and I should be with him all the time, but they assure me that if I'm imposing on them, they'll let me know. I'm not sure they're telling me the truth, but I guess there's not much I can do.

We blessed TJ on the 27 of May and it was fantastic. James was so nervous he thought he was going to wet himself! I'm going to post some pictures of that day later today, I hope. The interent on my computer is acting weired and, of course, that is where all of my pictures are. I'm hoping to get it fixed today. We'll see.

We've been trying to find James a job down here and we may have succeeded, but we're not 100% sure. It would be a significant cut in pay so he'd have to look into getting a second pt job. So, hes deciding what hes going to do. I'm ok with either one. Of course, I would prefer that he were here, but not if it means hes going to be at a job he doesn't like. As we found out last year, when he doesn't like a job, he doesn't stay there for long and I DO NOT want to go through that again. I'll keep you posted on what happens.
