"A baby will make love stronger, days shorter, nights longer, bankroll smaller, home happier, clothes shabbier, and the future worth living for."

What fun we've had lately! Oh, I love being a mommy! Quinn and Matt spoiled me this Mother's Day! I just don't really believe that I got to celebrate this holiday this year. It was such a special day and I even won the "newest mom" prize at church. I got the sweetest gifts...my favorite being a homemade card and a CD with a song that Tony Bennett wrote to his mom...Matt said that Quinn and I can dance to it at his wedding one day. So sweet! ...

Other than that...I started back to school last Thursday and have 9 days to go. The day I went, I fought back the tears and thanked the Lord that I will be able to stay at home with him next year. I can't imagine leaving him everyday. Matt "babysat" on Thursday and Friday, my mom is here this week, and Matt's mom will be here next week. I'm glad that Quinn is in good hands.

Here are recent pics of my sweet 'little man'...

Playing with Daddy...Quinn loves to "stand."

The smiles have started and they're precious...we're ready for more and more! Tired momma...but loving every minute!
Here is a pic of Q in one of his 'custom made' onesies that his daddy made him...do you see who that is?!!? Quinn loves his puppies already and they love him!!!
Quinn with his Grammer...she always makes him stop being fussy!
Slickpaw dressed Quinn for church this morning...doesn't he look so handsome?!
Our little family on Mother's Day!
My sweet friend, Shannon with her boys, Cade and Cruse!

I guess I didn't realize that it was already time for you to go back to school! Time flies when you're having fun, huh?! I'm so excited that you had a Happy 1st Mother's Day. I thought about you all week as people came into the store to do their Mother's Day shopping. How fun that you got to be spoiled this year!! Love you. :)

I love the title of the blog! so true I bet! It's so cute to see pics of Quinn growing so much already! I'm sorry about having to go back to school, I know that must be hard. I can't imagine how I'm going to do it all the time but somehow life works out!
