Happy Second Birthday, William!

Two years ago today my life was forever changed when Matt and I welcomed our son, William. He was born at 10:26 am at El Camino Hospital at,7 pounds, 7 ounces and was 18.75 inches in length. His birth day truly was one of the happiest days of my life.

A New Year – Fighting Sleep Hard

Last night Matt and I were lucky enough to go out and stay out past midnight. Candy stayed at our place to watch William, expected he would be asleep when we returned, but he was not. We slept in and Candy told us she’d hardly had any sleep as William stayed up the whole time except for a brief hour sleep.

First Day of Daycare After Daylight Savings Time

As an adult I’m not a huge fan of Daylight Savings Time. (So I’m thrilled California has taken a step to abolishing it). In addition to the statistics on how car accidents go up, I’ve seen first hand how our cat and son have their schedules changed. William prefers to wake himself up, and today was his first day at daycare after the fall back had occurred.

Recovering and Uh Oh as a phrase

Today was a special day for me at church as I was to be the lay Worship Leader. I love my church as it’s a come as you are place, so I’m often in T shirts and jeans, and I could have worn pants and a nice top, but instead I decided to wear a nice dress and blazer. Since I have so few pictures of William with me when I’m dressed up, I made sure to have a photo taken after I picked him up from church nursery.

Like Mother, Like Son?

I’m always taking photos of my son, so much so that I have more photos of him with others and alone, then I do of him with me. So it’s a treat when I get some. This morning Maribel was taking some of him and I got into a few. I love this photo which she sent to Matt and I. He resent it to me with the text that he looks just like me in this one.

New Shoes and Playmate at Church Nursery

I know William likes exploring every bit of the floor area at the church nursery. So it was a great day for him to be sent with his new shoes. I was able to put them on him without him fussing too much while at home and they stayed so he could show them off to the nursery teachers.

National Night Out Set Up

Today William and I arrived at Almaden Hills United Methodist Church early to help with the set up for the backpack stuffing for National Night Out. We ended up being so early that we were there before the set up, so we went to visit with Children’s Ministry Director Peggy Joy. Peggy even had a had for him as he was too young to attend Vacation Bible School a few weeks ago and get his own hat. Peggy admired the quilt I brought with him, which had been made by the Quilting Group of my church.

A Visit to J. Lohr

Matt and I had not been to J. Lohr Winery in a long time. The last time I had been was when my mother had come to town two years ago for Mother’s Day and she, Candy and I all went together. As I was pregnant with William at the time I could not drink, yet we still had a good time. Matt’s last visit had even been longer than that. So we looked forward to going now as I would be able to enjoy the tasting with Matt.
