New words!

Wyatt is really starting to talk! It's so sweet. Right now his words include: mom (momma), dada, ball, balloon, duck, bunny, and just the other day he said cheese. It was SO cute! He also is eating with a spoon now, although it's pretty messy, he loves to do it.

Still waiting for his 1st steps...

It's funny, back in February I thought Wyatt was so close to walking. But, now he is almost 13 months old, and still not walking. It's not that I'm really worried at all, it's just funny. He started crawling and cruising so early... and now he's just decided walking is not his thing. He'd much rather crawl anywhere he needs to go! I know once he starts walking, I'll probably wish he waited longer, but it will be nice when he finally decides to take some steps.

Oh, and I finally finished Wyatt's 1st Year Scrapblog.

Teeth update

Wyatt now has a 3rd tooth on top, with 1 more coming in on top and another coming in on the bottom. That will be a total of 8 teeth. He's really been a trooper! Sleeping all night, and not noticeably crankier or anything, until today. They must really be hurting, because he's been very unhappy. Poor little guy!

Horrible night

We just got back from the hospital. Wyatt is ok. But, it was our first night of being really worried for him. He was staying with my in-laws for the night and DH and i went out for our fourth anniversary. Anyways, we were home, almost asleep when we got a 2am call from in laws saying Wyatt was having a really hard time breathing, and wheezing a lot, and they were worried! They live close, so we went right over, as fast as we could, and he was having a hard time breathing, could not catch his breath, and just seemed really unlike himself, so we took him to ER. It totally scared me half to death. Thankfully it was just croup. They gave him steroids and a breathing treatment and he's doing better now. But, I feel like I cannot sleep. It was so scary, I'm so glad he's ok. I just feel so bad, because he wasn't feeling well before going to IL's, but I really thought it was just teething, but I guess live and learn huh. I guess we've been lucky this 1st year because we haven't had anything like this. I just felt like I was dying, on the short trip to our in laws, I HAD to hold my baby in my arms NOW. It was like something I've never felt before. I'm just so glad it's over and he's ok.

1 year old today!

I can't believe my little baby boy is 1. It was a year ago I was lying in the hospital, so anxious, excited, nervous, just waiting to meet my little man!

1st Birthday Plans

So, we are planning Wyatt's 1st birthday party for Sunday, April 19th at 2pm.
We are using his favorite characters from Noggin for the theme. I am so happy because I finally found a place that will do Moose A. Moose on a cake! So, everything has pretty much fallen into place. Moose is Wyatt's favorite, but is almost impossible to find anywhere. So, I had to become creative and try to make some things. I'm very excited for the party, I think it will be a great day for everyone! We also have a lot planned leading up to the big party. On Tues. we are going to go get Wyatt his first haircut. His hair is just getting out of control! So, I want to have it trimmed up a little. Then, on his actual birthday, the 16th, we will take him to get his 1 year pictures done. I'm not sure what we will do that afternoon, kind of depends on the weather. But, then we will eat dinner with the in-laws. It should be a great day!

The countdown begins

It is now only 7 days until Wyatt turns 1. How can this be possible? Where has the year gone? It seems like only yesterday we were bringing him home from the hospital.
Here is a post from a year ago. Reading this I can remember the excitement, fear, nervousness, and everything else I was going through. I still can't believe it's already been a year!
"Oh, I am so excited, nervous, anxious, impatient, emotional, so on and so on. I can't take it anymore! I just want to hold this little boy in my arms! But, I actually think a big part of me will miss having him all to myself! My emotions are all over the place, I am such a mess! But, I have to say for being 38 weeks and 4 days, I actually physically feel pretty good. I am still working, and even though I have a bit of a cold (runny nose, sore throat) I don't feel nearly as bad as I have heard from others. I mean, yeah, I am definitely done with being pregnant, but as far as a few aches and pains here and there I am feeling pretty good. I think I got my butt kicked by morning sickness early on, so I'm lucky to have it a little easier now. I am sleeping pretty well, only wake up a few times for the potty. And my right hip is killing me, so I do a lot of tossing and turning, but overall I don't feel sleep deprived. Anyways, I guess check with me if this baby is past due... I might feel a bit different. But, since my Dr. EDD is April 19, but by the LMP it is April 14- I really hope this little guy will be coming this weekend!!! That would be so PERFECT! Ok, Wyatt, do you hear that? You better listen up and arrive right on time.
That way I can try to not even think about the possibility of scheduling a c-section. We are doing a growth u/s tommorow and if they are saying he is 9lbs the dr. said she'd give me the option of scheduling a c-section. Which, I really don't want, but then maybe I do.. I can't decide. And I think that is why I am just going to say no. I might as well wait and give this baby a chance to enter the world his own way... but it is mighty tempting to go ahead and have his birth scheduled.. especially if he is THAT big and will end up with a c-section anyways. Ugh, I am so torn. I just can't wait for the u/s tomorrow to find out what is happening!"

Something new

It seems everyday now, Wyatt is learning something new. And it's becoming very clear to me- he is no longer my little baby. He's now my little boy. Which is a lot of fun too! He is so adventurous and always on the move. I think he's going to be a handful with him. But, I love it so much! Becoming a mother is the best thing I have every done. It is so important to me. He comes first, before everything else. But, I have this internal struggle then, of why do I want another child? But, I think when you are going through something so magical, and wonderful- you can't help but want to spread the love. I want a big, happy family! ♥

First steps just around the corner

Wyatt is starting to stand on his own now. I don't think it will be long before he is walking. I am pretty nervous about this. It means more independence for him, which I think is a good thing, but it means a lot more childproofing for us. And it feels like my little baby is growing up so fast. It feels like once he starts walking he isn't my baby anymore. He will now be a big boy. Gosh, the last nine and a half months has gone by too fast!

Another year older

Well, today I am 25. It doesn't really seem old, considering my dear husband is 32, and most of my friends are in their late 20's. I am the "baby" of the bunch. But, I still feel like so much of my life has already passed by, so quickly. I mean, when Wyatt's 20, I'll be about 45! I just think of how much my life has changed in the last 10 years- which I know is a big change from a 15 year old, to where I am now. But, still I can only wonder what wonderful things I have coming in the next 10 years.
