Ben's First Father's Day

June also means that Ben got to celebrate his first father's day. I had to work the previous day, so I got home that morning.

I left the day to Ben to decide what he wanted to do. And what did he opt to spend his special day? He wanted to go to the movies alone.

To be honest, I was a little shocked, a day meant to celebrate being a father and he wanted to be alone (at least a few hours alone). To go see the new Fast and Furious.

But it's what he wanted, so I agreed (I was going to say, I let him do it... but I didn't let him do anything.)

But I did ask him to bring me back a movie popcorn, I haven't had one of those in forever!

So off he went for the early matinee. Then on his way home he stopped at the grocery store, picked up some steaks for dinner and then watched the NASCAR race and kept Little man entertained while I took a nap (again remember I worked the previous day).

It actually turned out to be quite the nice day, although we were caught up in the Little man, I never got a chance to actually call MY dad and wish him a happy Father's Day. I feel like a total piece of crap :-(

Oh and what did Brenden get him for Father's day? Well we decided back in May, that we would do a joint gift (Mother's and Father's day) and we bought a patio set for our deck. So excited about getting to use that hopefully this summer!

But now I really want to go to the movies alone... or maybe a movie date.

So over another month goes by...

Man, if I had any readership left, I am sure they've left me by now! I can't believe I've been so horrible about updating my blog!

We are solidly in June now, the start of summer! Little man turns 9 months on Friday! We are also leaving for North Carolina that night. We are heading down to visit Uncle Nick and Aunt Lindsay for a week. This will be little man's longest journey (car ride), to say I am a little nervous would be an understatement. Little man doesn't do car rides well, certainly not long car rides. We are hopefully leaving in the early evening. We are hoping that if we can trade off driving and sleeping, that little man will sleep thru the night like he usually does, and we can get a fair amount of miles in. Hopefully we'll be in North Carolina either mid afternoon or early evening Saturday. But we also know that anything can happen, and that he sets our schedule.

June is also my birth month. I'll be 31... wow... that's crazy. So much of my life has changed in the last 10 years. I wouldn't change anything. I love my life.

We also set the date for our housewarming party. We bought the house in March, we figured that July would be good for a party ;-) hopefully the weather is good so we can BBQ and entertain outside!

And also coming up is Little Man's first birthday. Ben and I have been talking about some themes and what we want to do for his birthday.

Setting the date for the housewarming will hopefully light the fire under our butts to get some more stuff squared away and some more unpacking done. I'd really like to try and see if we can get the pool opened up and see if it's usable. I really hope it does, I think it'll be great to have.

We have a lot of my extended family we'll be seeing this summer. And at the end of the summer, we'll be returning to Bar Harbor (better known as Bah Habah, to the locals) to visit with Ben's extended family. We haven't been the Bar Harbor in 2 years (between wedding and baby) so I am super excited about going back there!

So with the last post I reported that Little man had his first ear infection (and a double one at that!) Well he got the all clear from the doc that the infection had passed and was good for about a week before the next ear infection came on. We are just about done with the antibiotic and the doc today said the ears look good. But it looks like if this continues, little man is going to be getting some tubes. bummer... I never really had issues with ear infections, but Ben did as well as my brother. And I guess there is a heredity factor. Sigh, Little man is still a trooper and just rolls with the punches. He really is a great baby and I am so lucky he's been good. He still has his fussy moments, but all in all, I am super blessed.

On the weight front, I'm stagnate. I haven't done anything. I am 5 pounds above my pre-preggo weight. Not really using it as an excuse, but with the pumping schedule I am keeping, I just can't find the time to get to the gym. I am hoping that after I am done pumping I can utilize that time that I spent pumping, to get to the gym (and still manage to get a solid amount of sleep/rest). I am by no means slacking off, I still stay quite active with Little man and we do get out for the occasional walk, but I know that I can be doing more.

So that's about it, I hope to be updating more frequently!
