My New Life...

Ok so most of you know by now that I started a blog a while back, who am I kidding 2008 is more than a while, anyhow ..... I went to NY to see my sister and it got lost in the Adirondack Mountains somewhere......perhaps on Haystack, or Marcy, I'm not quite sure.....
I think I can say at this point this blog has evolved into a full-blown mommy blog. There are random tidbits of non-mommy related issues and events of the world thrown in as well.Basically, I am a new mom trying to document that ever changing job for myself, my child, my friends and family. These are strictly my opinions and rants. Please don't take them for more than that!!!
My New Life has started with the birth of Ian!! I am not going to back track and fill in all the boring details of my birth story ect. Although birth was not as hard and horrible as I imagined, Dan and I were laughing and joking all through labor!! I am going to start here with my new life.....married, with Ian at 2 months!!!

One Month Old!

On Ian's one month birthday we had a photo shoot with Mike Paul Edde (Beacon Photography)!!!
P.S. We love Mikey, he even flew to NY do take photos of our wedding for an entire weekend. I like to think Ian was a natural!!!!!
He started off like this:

and then went to this:

and ended like this:

You Know Your A Mom When....

When you can do almost anything one handed; including typing and preparing meals!
When your husband says to you "babe, you have spit up all over your shirt" and you say nonchalantly "I know" and have known it was there for hours and didn't care.
When you have serious conversations about poop.
When shaving has become a luxury. Hey you barely have time to shower let alone actually shave while your in there!
When you don't want strangers to even look at your new baby for fears that just them breathing in his direction will cause him to catch something.
When your 19 students say "We'll be his mommy and you can be his big sister" and for a moment it sounds like a good idea.
When you leave your new baby even if its just for an hour or 2 with daddy and you feel incredibly guilty. Because you know...he's so little he needs his mommy!
When the slightest grunt, fart, or wiggle wakes you up.
When you finally feel like you have purpose.
and lastly
When you experience love like you never knew existed before; each time you look into his eyes...or see him smile...or waiting for the first time he tells you he loves you...and when you can’t imagine life or anything like it without your child. That's when you know your a mom.
