3 Years & 1 Baby later...

I am finally working on ordering my Wedding Album...!!! Almost forgot how gorgeous our wedding photos are. I had planned to do this during my maternity leave thinking I would have all the free time in the world staying at home with a newborn (ha!), but I am just now getting around to doing it. Thank you, Luna Photo for capturing the 2nd best day of our lives.

A day without Lucca

I LOVE being a stay at home mommy. Period. I wish every mother could do it. My mom always tells me "these are the years you will never get back" and it's so true.

However, being a stay at home mom leaves very little time for moments alone. Especially with the type of hours my husband works! So today was quite a treat...I went to a baby shower a couple hours away, meaning I spent 9 hours without Lucca today. FREEDOM!! I got dressed up, DID MY HAIR (and makeup!!!), wore heels, put on my jewelry that I never ever wear with Lucca, and cranked up the music as soon as I got in the car. What a treat. Of course, I missed her within 10 minutes of leaving, but I knew she would have a fun day with her Daddy.

As I was driving back home tonight, I could hardly wait to walk up our front stairs and see my baby! That must be how my husband feels every day coming home from work. I WAS SO EXCITED. And Lucca gave me just the perfect little reaction I wanted....came running to me saying "Mama!" "Mama!" and jumped into my arms. It didn't even matter to me that she was dressed totally mismatched, wearing a 6-9 month (!) skirt with a yellow (unbuttoned) onesie at 14 months old and eating pizza with her Dad ;) He did good!

Thanks babe! Sometimes moms just need a day.

Pool Party!

These three sunbabies loved playing in the water at Grammie & Pops house. Lincoln wouldn't get out of the pool, Lila loved being squirted with the hose, and Lucca realized the pool slowed her down from running, so she didn't last long. And she earned herself a new nickname in that bathing suit....Sweet Cheeks!

Tired coconuts

Fun at Grammie & Pops

I love May.

I'm spending the week at my parents house because my sister and her family are visiting from Washington. It's SO FUN and CRAZY to have all the babies together. We may or may not lie to strangers when we say "Yes" the babies are triplets. Lucca loves her cuzzies and I'm so glad she is getting baby interaction (i.e. getting toys stolen, hair pulled, eyes poked, etc). A little taste of life not revolving all around Lucca is a good thing for my girl :)

My 2nd Mother's Day was spent with my mommy and sissy...getting massages and facials at the spa. We married some pretty good dudes!!! My dad cooked an amazing dinner for the family, for the first time in my entire life. I don't know what he waited 28 years for, but he must have been storing up all his skills for one delicious Mother's Day dinner - but now the secret is out...he can cook!

My birthday is Friday -- margaritas await us. Happy May y'all!

Peas, peas, peas

All she wants to eat are PEAS. Peas. And more peas.

Gone are the days of eating chicken, salmon, yogurt and whatever else I put in front of Lucca. We are single-handedly keeping the sweet pea business alive and well in California...

(see that chicken in the blue bowl? it stayed there...)
