Such a blessing from day one - You instantly brought such overwhelming joy to us. I never imagined I would or could feel so much love for something. I remember just crying because I was so in awe of and in love with you. Here you are at two weeks - you were so little you fit in our hands, pretty amazing.
I know you won't remember you first birthday party, so we took lots of pictures to show you someday. Although you did have a little meltdown after everyone sang Happy Birthday to you, you managed to enjoy some of your carrot cake cup cake - even licked the candle.
Sean, you are such a blessing to us and we love you more than words can express!

That was our Japanese Maple last night, here it is today (along with the other cherry blossom tree):
I once thought I would only ever have to mutter the phrase, "No begging" to a dog, but my son has proved me wrong. It was seriously the cutest thing ever. Hunched over, closing in, mouth agape, come on Lindsey, just one little bite! He was begging hard core! Just standing like that for minutes.

Sean is really into putting things away - here he is putting his wooden blocks away - into Ryan's slippers.
Pointing at the giraffes at the zoo
And finally, here are some of the latest pictures of the trees in our yard. They are changing so rapidly right now I am having a hard time keeping up.

Kitchen window while eating breakfast
car window on way to work
classroom window with student DNA model (don't worry, those gross streaks are on the outside, not inside:)
The back of my classroom is lined with windows into the neighboring classroom. I always wonder who thought this would be a good idea in a high school. Luckily the curtains are always shut and students are pretty good at leaving them be.
Parents house - and their magnolia tree, picking up Sean
The window in our Attic - who needs a window in the attic?
The old window we got from the the old farmhouse on Ryan's families ranch
Sean and I managed to go for a walk during the 15 minutes of rain - here we are back inside
barbecuing outside, Sean eating inside

ps. what sporting events are we supposed to watch all spring/summer?!?!?!?!
Sunday, April 06, 2008
Well today is the fist day after spring break - and as my mom pointed out I had the whole week off last week and did not post one blog! Guess I was still pretty busy. It was a good week though and got a lot done.
Sean is doing more things every day. I think he has said his unofficial first word - the other week we were at Green lake looking at all the birds which he loves to watch and I kept making "caw" noises. Now he will point at the windows in our house (which we often look out to see the birds) and say "caw". It is too cute.
Here is his first experience with crayons
He is such an amazing little boy and I am so excited to continue to watch him learn and grow!

What!?!?!? I Spring Break already?!?!? I am so excited about this break - getting to spend all 5 days of the week with our little boy, feeling like I have plenty of time to not only clean the house, cook, and grocery shop, but also visit some friends, have breakfast with mom, take Ryan lunch, etc. Needless to say I am excited about my little break.
I hope you are enjoying this cold spring week as well!
