10 on Thursday +1

1. Wow, am I ever behind! Life's been busy. And I thought I was busy before I had a child.

2. I figured I should type a list of words Bubby says before I forget :) His first word was dada and his second was mommom. Since he turned one he's been adding more words.
catch = (when he throws a ball)
nana = banana
peace = please
tank = thank you
wa wa = water
no = no or yes
night night - (I want to go to sleep)
He signs the following with his own variation: ball, eat, water, please, thank you, all done


I put tin foil over the majority of my son's window a few weeks ago to block out much of the light. He's been waking up around 7am now :) but it took a while for his internal clock to change. However, last night he woke at 10:45pm and wouldn't go back to sleep. After about three hours I figured out it was because he thought it was morning. So we took a stroll around the house showing how dark it was and that everyone should be sleeping including him. I then laid him down and covered the light from is humidifier. That helped. He was asleep soon after. But he still woke up at 6:45 this morning.


Lord, I am asking...
Luke 11:9-10:
Keep on asking, and you will be given what you ask for. Keep on looking, and you will find. Keep on knocking , and the door will be opened. For everyone who asks, receives. Everyone who seeks, finds. And the door is opened to everyone who knocks.


My honey went out dancing the other night, so I rented a couple of romance movies. I never heard of Leap Year until I saw it in the store. It was refreshing and clean and moral for now a days :) I'd own this movie and probably watch it quite often. I definitely recommend it :) Then I watched Valentine's Day. I was expecting it to suck. But I was pleasantly surprised :) All I have to say is, "Kneel to Nzinga!" I watched Young Victoria with my mom the other day. That was pretty good. It's nice to watch movies based on true lives specifically when they are happy lives :)


Bubby and I were at the bank the other day. While waiting in line another patron mentioned that Bubby is really smart and that his IQ is between 120 and 150. When I asked her why she thought that, she responded that it's how his eyebrows move and he tilts his chin taking in everything. She proceeded to tell me that if I want him to dress himself at 2 or 2 1/2 years old, I need to put a set of clothes, socks, underware, shirt, and pants, in a grocery bag. This way he can pull out the bag and put on those clothes and get himself ready for daycare. Then I told her that he'll be staying home with me and not going to daycare. She said that is not good because I will do things for him instead of have him do them. I am determined to make those words she spoke false.

The lady said that she learned how to read people when she was in a concentration camp during World War II, a waitress, and classes she took for her other job working in the FBI or something like that. Then she went on to say that I have above average intelligence, and she can tell I am the one to leave a tip at a restaurant even if my husband pays the bill. She could tell my intelligence by the way I tilted my chin and my elbows gave away that I am the tip leaver. She said I am very generous but that's not always a good thing. Along with that comes people taking advantage of me and me being willing to do things others don't want to do. I've known that about myself for a LONG time, and I have worked to change. I'm making progress in some areas of my life, but I still have a way to go specifically decisions I make about my life and my son's life.

I'm glad I met that lady. It has given me more determination than ever to not give my weaknesses to my son. He is a child of the Most High, and I will follow God's instructions on how to raise him, not others. Blessings :)


My son was cranky around 8 the other day. So I decided to take him for a bike ride. Within minutes he was fast asleep. I headed home and put him to bed. He slept for about 2 1/2 hours. He woke, ate, and played for a bit. Then he got cranky again. So I took him and his cousin for a bike ride to the park. When we returned he was cranky once again. So I asked him if he wanted to go Night Night. He then repeated Night Night a few times. I laid him down and he was out for one to two hours. Then he was happy the rest of the evening :) I am so blessed to have such a wonderful and amazing son.


My son helping me with yard work just before my trip to Alaska :)


At lunch with two of his grandma's :)

10. The cruise was great :) We went the 6th-13th on the Holland Oosterdam. We went to Juneau, Sitka, and Ketchikan, and then Victoria. We were two hours late to Victoria and all the excursions were canceled, but we still got to see part of the city :) We had great weather at all the ports. While I was away, my son grew! It's amazing how quickly that happens :( He had a good time with his dad, pop pop, and all those he hang out with. I don't think he missed me a lick:( I sent him a postcard at my first destination but it didn't arrive until the day after I returned :( Oh, well. It'll go in his memory book.


One of my nephews went above and beyond with how he played/handled my son yesterday. Thank you, Miles :)
