Happy Mother's Day to me!

Wow, what a day! I got to sleep in (first because my baby slept in, but then because my hubby let me!) My mom gave me a VERY special gift, that I hope to share with you all someday. Trevor got me a MASSAGE!!! (I haven't gotten the massage yet, I get to choose when.) We took Declan swimming and he love, Love, LOVED it! We have a small "kiddie" pool at our complex, so we just took him there. I didn't get in with him, but I wish I had. And of the hardest things we've done yet......we put Declan to sleep in his crib. For the first time. In his own room. He went down pretty ok, but after a little bit, he started freaking out a bit more. And then he got really upset, so I went in a held him for a little while. Then, whenever I tried to put him down, he would cry so hard he almost couldn't breathe. Which of course freaked me out, and I would pick him up again. Finally I just had to let him cry....and of course he fell asleep. So I guess we'll see how the night goes, and if that goes ok, we'll see how the morning goes. I won't have my alarm clock there and.....yup, there it is, the tears are coming. We've really let it get too far, and this is going to be a lot harder than it should have been. But, it's something that needs to happen, he can't share our room and sleep in a play pen till he's 18.....right? :) All in all, a wonderful first Mother's Day. I hope all you mommas out there had a wonderful day, too!
A little tentative at first.....

But he soon learned he LOVED it!

A little splashy in the face!

D got a little owie on his nose from his sippy cup. Who knew sippy cups could give owies! :)

I love his lashes in these 3:

I love his face, here he is doing his Brando impression.
I'm really, really, really going to miss this.....

I've felt your pain. It's no fun watching them grow up - that includes them moving into their "big boy beds". I doubt he would mind if you hopped in his crib with him. Might be cozy. :)

Trevor "tried" to get in bed with him the other night and in his jest, he woke him up! Dec went back to sleep well but still....we learned our lesson!! :)

I know its hard to let the littles grow up!! Just like anything else he just needs a little adjustment time and he'll be fine. He still has YOU ever day. Remember that. He'll be fine.....and you'll probably be fine steps. :)
