Worn out

For the first time since he has been born I am feeling totally worn out. Sick of saying no. Tired of pulling things out of his mouth. Tired of having to watch his every move to protect himself... Just really exhausted. He is almost a year old and I'm finally feeling drained. It probably has a lot to do with his demeanor this week- cranky, whiny, into everything, wants to be constantly held, teething. It has just been a hard week. I feel like I need a break, a rejuvenation, a time to replenish myself so that I can take better care of him and of Ross. I know that it's ok to feel like this but I feel guilty. I am very, very grateful to be home with him. I love our time together. I should be focusing on that. Maybe I just need an attitude adjustment!?!?!? Done venting...just a hard week.

The best.

This has probably been the best month with the baby so far. I think that every month, but then the next month is even better! Talk about blessed!!! His personality is so vibrant and fun. He is learning, exploring and communicating more than ever. I always find myself thinking "this has been the best weekend/month/year of my life!" It's just so fun!

Over the weekend we took the baby, and his newly found talent of pointing and grunting, to watch the planes coming in and out of DFW airport. It was one of the funnest things we have ever done with him. Here are some videos and pictures of that and more. Enjoy the baby giggles! (I know that some of the videos are sideways...I just don't know how to fix them.)
