My Mommyisms (signature moments in mommyhood)

  • My Cam took his first independent walk at 10 months old and now he's mastered running. lol!
  • My Cam made his first pee pee in the potty at 13 months old. A  and a half week later were trying real hard to catch that 4th pee pee in the potty! But we are staying hopeful. LOL!
  • I like when he says "mommy" (which he just started saying) instead of "mama".
  • He can say "maama" (grandma) and "pawpaw" (grandaddy).
  • He tries to sing his abc's.
  • He took his first dive in the pool.
  • My baby is becoming quite the little singer and dancer. Trying to imitate and keep up with mommy and daddy.
  • He now greets visitors with "Hi baby" and then when they make their exit it's "Bye baby."
  • Every animal he sees is "Cookie".
  • He knows how to say "dirty" when he sees something that's and when mommy (me) doesn't let him get his way.
  • Pawpaw or daddy is sometimes called 'papi" or "papiya". So the spanish toys are obviously working!
  • He wakes up in the morning with great conversation starting each one of with "hi baby" or "Cookie".
  • He now enjoys great conversations, singing and dancing with mommy, helping mommy "try " to clean, playing his instruments, talking on the phone, taking showers and getting his little hand and feet kissed by yours
  • Every joke he now gets and laughs along with even when he's asleep in his crib!
  • He blows kisses back and hugs.

           Love my Cam!

Mommy Equations

1. Latin dance workout for mommy+Holding baby while doing it=fun workout.
2. Mommy reading Where's Spot+Baby helping mommy ready=smart kid and conversation starter for mommy LOL!
3. Low energy day for mommy+high energy day for baby=interestingly worth avoiding phone calls and also worth passing out at the end of the day.
4. Rocking baby in arms at 11:00 p.m.+6 am getup in the morning workday to follow=priceless and cherished.

Thank God for sleeping babies(and deeply hidden energy boosts).

As the late night, early morning hit me in the dead of my sleep I suddenly woke up with a surge of energy. I had drilled into my mind what I would do (or should I say what I had planned to do) after work. I refused to once again go home on a Friday evening play with Cam, tend to Cam's needs, hang out with hubby then go to sleep. Not again! So, as I lifted my head up and talked my hubby into dreamland, I decided to get my butt out of bed and do what I said I would. Yes! It was the perfect time and opportunity to be productive. I swept, mopped, scrubbed, wiped down mirrors, cleaned toilet bowls and tanks, created new jewelry pieces, edited my ever so growing list of errands and needed household items for the weekend and of course but last but not least I got on my blogs and I WROTE! Feeling of accomplishment at 4:00 in the morning: Check!  The opportunity for me to do all the things I set out to do this weekend has finally been fully taken advantage of and it was all due to my insane burst of energy, my sleeping hubby and my sleeping baby! Thank you God for sleeping babies.

What's yours is mine........ALL MINE ALL THE TIME!

Many many years ago my mother gave me a fair warning of a future with kids. I no words and all actions that warning invisibly spelled out: WHAT WAS ONCE YOURS IS NOW THIERS! Now since my Cam has gotten a little older and alot wiser, he is now showing me the meaning of those very invisible words. If I got it, he wants it. If I look at it, he's watching me look at it. If I'm tasting or opening it he's sneaking right up next to me saying his charming plea "Hi Baby" (yes that is what he says when he wants something and on special occasions he may throw in a "please or pese" lol) Oh it's just another one of the many joys of being a mommy! But what makes it even cuter in his own special Cam way is that he loves to share too! So all in all no hope is lost and there is no need to fret over not being able to enjoy a meal for myself, because my baby returns the favor in his own little special way!

Cam's Domain

What was once our house
is no longer our house anymore
our house has turned into a toy factory
for little boys or should I say Cam's Domain!
From the sippy cups, the instruments, the bath toys and much more
It's easy to see why we rarely get bored
The television has been overtaken by Sprout, Nick Jr and Kids Tunes
Cam has claimed his domain
so I guess it's time for us to move!
