For starters, Dresden is officially half way to a year old. I can't believe it! We went to the doctor and he's about 67th percentile for his head, 10th for his weight to heighth ratio, and about 15th for his weight. (I knew he was ready for solids...I guess it's that motherly instinct everyone talks about...I don't know). I was so excited to get him on solids, but it had to wait. I had finals for Spring Semester (which didn't go too bad) and Mother's Day (that went really well) at the flower shop. Even so though so many wonderful things were going on in my life I just couldn't shake the excitment I had for starting Dresden on solids. Finally, on Mother's Day Dresden got to devour delicious homemade carrots made by his lovely aunt Beth (and I say that because that was what he was doing with practically every bite). Below is some of the footage of this momentous experience.
Some of the other wonderful adventures we've got to enjoy this past two months is planting a garden, perfecting my bread making skills, a celebration of my wonderful birthday (thanks to my hubby, Beth and my mom, dad and brother...not to mention all those wonderful people who remembered me that day) and the best of all has been watching my little boy grow like a weed. I seriously did not know how hard online classes would be for me especially when you have a little boy as cute as Dresden wanting to soak up all and every bit of spare time you have. I just hope he knows how much I adore being his mother. He makes me so happy (even when he screams the entire time I'm out delivering flowers for our flowershop).
By the way (little side note)...can I just say how grateful I am for the sweet gal we hired to manage our shop. Since we've done that I have been able to fall in love with owning "our own little flower shop" all over again. It's taken me a while to admit to this, but I am just not manager type. Thank heaven for those who can do well at that sort of thing.
Back to my precious little boy...I don't know what to say other than I am truly blessed. I couldn't have asked for a better son. He lights up my world. These past few weeks I've had this feeling that perhaps I shouldn't continue on with my schooling. I don't want to miss those little "baby" moments that I've thought was not so big of a deal before. I thought I'd better get my schooling done while Dresden can't walk and talk. But I'm realizing that even that isn't as easy as I made it sound. However, I have only 4 classes left until I can graduate. The more I think about it and pray, it seems to be the wiser choice to stick with it. Boy am I in a dilemma hopefully I Heavenly Father can help me out with this decision. Dresden and Scott are the most important priority to me and I will do anything I have to make sure they are well taken care of. We shall see what the best thing is. Until then...it's been nice catching up.
