As soon as it is "crowned" with it's 2nd place ribbon I will post pictures. Thomas will be so proud of his Grandma!
So KUDOS to Grandma and her quilt making skills! I'll post a picture of the quilt as soon as I get it!

As I have gotten older, it has been really important for me to let my mom know just how much she means to me and how I think she is a great mom! I wouldn't change a thing! I have always told her, she is my mom, and I love her, and I will defend her to the death! And despite every argument we ever had, ever adolescent tiff, and every difference of opinion, she is one of the strongest women I know. I am proud to call her mom.
So the greatest compliment I could ever receive is for my mom to say that I am a great mom! So after all these years of thinking that I would never have kids and then convincing myself that even if I did have kids I probably wouldn't be a good mom anyway, hear my mom tell a friend that I am a great mom!
So I thought it was important to share, that to me, that is the greatest compliment I could ever receive!

We are here rockin' and rollin' in CA, don't you just love it? I guess you have to living here!
All is okay, Thomas slept right through the earthquake, what else is new, he slept through his first earthquake when he was about 6 weeks old.
Steven was the closest to the epicenter, it was a 5.8 in Chino Hills, not far from where he works, and he has about 8 aftershocks under his belt so far, but he is holding his own, and we can't wait for him to get home!
Stay tuned, I'll keep you posted!

Looks like my last day at work will be the 15th of August. So it will be nice to have 6 weeks off to spend with Thomas before the new baby comes. Maybe we'll convince Dad to take a few days off too!
And a big Welcome to my friend Theresa's baby...he was born today at 3:13 pm 9lbs, 3oz, and I didn't realize anyone would have a baby almost as big as Thomas!! So Congrats to Theresa and Rashad, the proud parents! I hope to have a pic to post of the new little addition soon!

Saturday night we went to another concert in the park, a tribute band to the Eagles, with a bunch of friends! Thomas just loved it, he loves being at the park and loves being at the concerts! And of course being the bad mommy that I am, I forgot the camera, but I don't feel bad, because Grandma forgot her camera too! But I know that Wendy got some pics of Thomas and Amanda together, so I'm sure she'll forward them on and we'll get them posted!
Amanda is 1 month older than Thomas and they are so adorable together. They danced together and it was adorable to see her reach out to hold Thomas' hand!
Then on Sunday we were shopping and more shopping. And then we got to go to a new park! And of course, once again, bad mommy forgot the camera, and it was so cute, he would climb up the slide, then lay on his belly and slide down and all the way down saying "WEEEEEEE" so I'll try and get that on video in the next few days!

Well I went to the doc again yesterday, she said she is willing to let me go back to work on Monday, but one little issue and she wants me home until the baby is born. So in the last 3 weeks I have put on not a single pound. I'm 7 months pregnant and only put on 8 lbs! Where that is good for me, I worry about the baby. But the doc says she is not concerned, I am measuring right, the baby is growing and we go for yet another ultrasound on the 18th! So we'll see just how much he is growing! So I will be back at work starting on Monday!
Okay one more video....
Thomas is learning to use his fork, or should I say he's LEARNED how to use his fork! The funny thing is...he hates juice of any kind, but yet when I give him fruit, like pineapple, he chews and chews and sucks the juice out of it and then he spits it out for another piece! It's quite entertaining, yet messy!
Well I hope you have enjoyed the pics and videos and more updates, I'll try to be a little more diligent when keeping up my posts!
All this partying is tiring! I better catch a nap before the fireworks!
Playing in the water, anything with water, he just loves....maybe he'll be an olympic swimmer or something!
He ate breakfast at the farmer's market and he wouldn't give up the spoon, now we know why....he wanted to wash it!!
And then we took him to the races at Ventura Raceway. We watch the Sprint cars and we even went to see the Motorcycles, that's when he saw Cher....and he was not impressed haha. Anyway, he loves to watch the cars. He claps and points, I am thinking he secretly is placing bets with his bookie through hand signals!
Here we were goofing around on the patio with his bucket of water....it's more fun than a barrel full of monkeys!! Look at that curly Hair....Thomas would like to thank his Grandma for that!
