Well, we headed to the beach today to take Harrison’s 1 year picture. No luck. He wasn’t very cooperative. We did manage to get some family pics. Thanks, Auntie Valerie J. We are TOOOOOOOO cute!
Need I say more? June 19, 2007
He is the most handsome little guy! I took this this afternoon while Harrison and Daddy were swimming!
It’s great to know I still have readers! June 9, 2007
Thanks to everyone that commented on my last post!
Nicole: I took a pregnancy test two days ago and I’m not, so we have checked that off!
Sharon: Wow…thanks for all the advice! I love it! I am excited to print off your list of food and get on it!
There are always kids out there that are going to be better than your kid at things. Harrison loves to talk. He can’t form many words yet, but he babbles like he is really talking to you. He even pauses and waits for your response to his “questions.” I love it. And you know when he is serious about what he is talking about because he talks with his hands and has a stern look on his face. Harrison is great in his own ways, I know. I just feel blah about everything I’m supposed to be doing for him, but after reading all of the comments, you are all right, I am doing enough.
Thanks, girls! You all rock!!!!
Weird things… June 6, 2007
Well, things around here have been a bit weird lately. Harrison’s birthday was a hit and we had fun, but since then I’ve been feeling weird. I don’t feel like I’m stimulating him enough. Everyone I’ve talked to says I do and they think I do a great job with him, but I just don’t feel like I’m doing everything I could, yet I can’t figure out what I could do better. We play. We go for walks. We go swimming. We read tons and tons of books. We giggle. We tickle. We work on walking and talking. But I just feel blah.
Brian’s store got robbed at gunpoint last week, and ever since then I’ve been freaked out if I can’t get a hold of him. Thanks goodness he wasn’t there at the time, or I’d be even more freaked out. I knew moving here would be different, but I didn’t know how different. I get homesick once in a while, but I don’t think this is homesickness, I’m not sure what it is. I’m not depressed. I have a great hubby and an amazing son. I have fun all the time with Brian and Harrison. I live in Florida, for heaven’s sake, it is beautiful here all the time. I just don’t feel like me. I know this isn’t making any sense, but I was hoping if I “verablized” it, maybe it would to me.
I had two really bad days in a row last week, and the second one left me in tears, and I’m not a crier when it comes to everyday life. The dog peed in the house, the cat was meowing, and I was trying to get one of Harrison’s new toys to work and I couldn’t, and next thing I know, I’m bawling and Harrison is patting my face and petting my tears away. What is wrong with me? That’s the only time I’ve cried. I just don’t feel like I’m on my game.
Maybe I’m just missing my husband since he is gone all the time. I know I’m missing my family, but I don’t think that is it.
Any thoughts would be appreciated.
What are you feeding your 1-year old? I feel like Harrison gets the same stuff all the time and I’m trying to mix it up!
