Four Months of Blessings

Last Thursday my baby boy celebrated his four month birthday. I can't believe it! Everyone said it would fly by...what an understatement. It seems like just yesterday Eric and I were fighting over whose turn it was to take the 3am feeding. Now we argue over who gets privilege of getting him out of the bed in the morning. (I'll explain later) My how the tables have turned! The thing that amazes me the most about my baby is his personality. So to all of you who have never met my little man, I can honestly say that pictures are not worth a thousand words. At least not in the case of Mr. Elijah Harold Watson. So, I would like to take you behind the pictures and introduce you to my boy.

Every morning Eli wakes up cooing; never crying. One of us will quietly slip into his room and stand beside his bed until he looks up and sees us. Then this huge, gummy smile spreads across his face and his eyes light up. He is so excited to see his mommy and daddy and probably even more excited to get to eat. Like is parents, Eli too is a foodie. He loves his bottle and since introducing him to cereal he cries between bites; we can't get it into his mouth fast enough! In fact, the only time Eli ever throws a crying fit is when he's hungry.

Eli's favorite past time to date is lying in the floor playing. He talks and coos to whoever or whatever will listen. Most recently he talks to the toy frog that is attached to his car seat. Another favorite companion is the television. We don't like to use it as a babysitter, but with him responding already, the television buys us time to cook dinner. His favorites are Baby Einstein and any basketball game on TV. Needless to say that being the only woman in the house with two boys who love basketball, we watch a lot of ESPN.

I could go on on about my little man, but in fear of boring you I'll be brief. Eli has brought me more joy than I ever thought possible. His smile is precious, his laugh is musical and nothing can compare to being his mommy. There are stressful days, there are frustrating days but nothing can take away the joy I've experience throughout the past four months of blessings.

A New Decade

Happy 2020, everyone!  I know I'm a month and a half behind, but ya'll, January was brutal!  Not brutal in a tragic kind of way but in a "life will wear you out" kind of way. It started off with the flu...times three!  Eric, Ellie and I had Flu B and missed the first week back to school and work.  Then Eli was diagnosed with Flu A two weeks later.  Thankfully, my in-laws stepped in to help so that we didn't have to miss any more time at work. On top of the sickness, we listed our house for sale. The work it takes getting ready for market is just crazy. But we also have people coming in and out of our home at all hours and it's just kinda overwhelming. Plus, we are finalizing everything with the builder. In full transparency, working with the builder has been the easiest part! Maybe I'll do a little update on the whole building process later this week.  Now that the dust has settled on 2020, I'm going to try my very hardest to keep this litt

Mother's Day Memories

I hope everyone had a wonderful Mother's Day.  I want to start by saying that my heart and prayers go out to the "Mommies in Waiting" and to those who are missing their Momma on this special day.  You are not forgotten. We started Mother's Day at church with our crew, and we were lucky enough to be in the nursery.  We let Eli tag along, and he helped facility "Derby Races" around the table while the kids were on riding toys.  It was a hoot!  We also made cards for the mommies. We had some leftovers at home for lunch and then I spent some time laying out while Eric worked on the pool.  It was almost 90 degrees and the perfect way to relax on my special day! Eric made me a shrimp boil for dinner, and we took a family trip to Dairy Queen.  They also have presents coming later this week for me.  Basically, they are awesome!

Hit Me With Your Best Shot

Have I ever told you that Eli loves sports?  Ha!  I look back at him with baseballs and basketballs at 18 months old ,and it blows my mind that he's still so interested.   The thing is, he doesn't discriminate.  Baseball, basketball, football, name it, we play it! Not only do we play sports all day, we also have to watch certain videos on Youtube.   We watch "Boys of Fall," while wearing a football helmet. We watch Alabama's "Cheap Seats,"  John Fogerty's"Centerfield," and Kenny Rogers,  "The Greatest" while holding a bat, carrying a ball, and wearing a batting helmet. And now, thanks to Space Jam, we have to listen to the movie sound track while shooting hoops!  That's a blast from the past! He hasn't found a song about soccer or golf...YET! And with all that playing, who has time to run inside for a potty break?  Not this boy! I never thought
