Growing Up

McKay is one week away from turning 1. I can't believe how fast it went by. I am happy it did though. He is so much fun right now, and I know he will be grow to be more fun.. tougher as well, but still fun. I can't believe how much they change, so quickly.

I'm loving the fun personality McKay is developing. This picture shows it.

I'm loving staying home with him now. My Mom noticed that I seem to be a lot happier ever since I quit work. It's absolutley true. Even on those tough days, where you just want a break.. for even 5 minutes alone in the bathroom, it's still worth every second. I'm thankful things are working out for us right now. I am planning an Owl themed birthday party for McKay. I'm very excited, but have left it all to last minute, so I am not sure how it will all turn out. No matter how put together it is, It will still be fun to get together with family and close friends to celebrate the life of my boy.

I am feeling almost 100% back to normal since my surgery. I hardly even notice the pain anymore, and I am able to do most things. I can't wait until I can start really working out again. I was on such a good streak with weight loss. Luckily, I haven't gained in the past 8 weeks, but I haven't lost either. Im at a totaly of 37lbs now and loving it. I'm down 2 pants sizes and loving that too, and so glad I held on to a few pairs of pants that were too small. I just hate having to buy new clothes in the middle of losing weight.

I drove the car, and went groccery shopping this morning...with a regular shoe on. I thought this day would never come! I haven't been able to drive in weeks, let alone leave the house much. It felt great!

Hugs and Kisses

I have been at home with McKay for a week now, and just now I'm realizing what a cuddly boy I have. Since I can't do much with him, I just have to let him entertain himself until I'm all healed. Luckily he does pretty well at that. About every 5 minutes, he stops what he is doing and crawls back to me to give me a big hug and kiss. He even makes a soft sigh when he hugs me. Then he goes back to what he was doing, but doesn't forget to come back and give me a hug. Its adorable and I am loving it so much! Like I said before in an earlier post, he is learning new things everyday. He now will pick up cells phones, or toy phones and put them to his ear like he is talking on it, he dances as soon as he hears music and has great rhythm I might add. He can show me where his head is if I ask him, and also his belly button. If we say " where is your button" he is starting to lift up his shirt and giggle. He usually can find his belly button and sticks his finger in it. Of course, these are all things we try to get him to do for other people but no. Kids just wont perform. Oh well, as long as me and Steve get witness it all. I am so in love with this almost 1 yr old boy!
