Weekend work

We had a weekend filled with work! Keith works so hard! He takes a lot of pride in our house and he always wants to fix it up. This weekend he built a shelf by the TV for an entertainment center. He also worked incredibly hard building shelves in our garage.
Our garage was a mess. We have to fit the boat in, the Rhino, plus all the rest of our stuff. Keith decided he would build shelves to create more room. He built 1 side of the garage with double shelves and the other side has one long shelf. It makes SO MUCH room in our garage! We can actually fit in it!
Hunter and I just stayed inside and played. I cleaned the house and went grocery shopping. It was a pretty good weekend. I love just spending time with my little family! :)

Hunter's Year

This is Hunter now

Here he is about 6 months old

The first time I saw him

What a beautiful boy!

Today is Hunter's Birthday. What happened to this whole year? It went by so fast, all the memories are just blurs! What a wonderful year it has been. Even though the year is just memories, I will remember every single moment, from the first time the nurses laid Hunter on my belly and I saw his beautiful face, to this moment.

Hunter was the most gorgeous baby I have ever seen. I'm sure every mother says that, but I really do believe that I've never seen a baby so perfect. Those few days after Hunter was born were miserable, but I knew in my heart they would pass. When they did, I realized again how amazing my son was. He only kept me up all night a handful of times. By the time he was 4 weeks old, he was sleeping through the night. He hardly ever cried. I am so lucky.

I'm so proud of him, already! When he first laughed, I was proud. When he first said Dada I was proud. Now all he says is, "Ma," and I'm even more proud! It took him awhile to learn how to roll over, but once he did, he learned to crawl like a maniac. He crawls faster than me. He was 8 months old when he got his first tooth. Then within the month, he got 5 more! Once he starts something, he just keeps going! I can't wait to see what he will become.

Hunter is 1 today. I can't believe it. I can't believe that I can love such a little person so much! I guess that is what kids do. They open up your heart. At least that is what Hunter has done for me.

Crazy Week

Last Monday, I woke up Hunter to find that he had thrown up all over in his bed, as well as down the wall next to his crib. So I stayed home and took him to the doctor. The doc said to make sure he doesn't get dehydrated and try giving him some Pedialyte. Well, Hunter hated it! So after that, he wouldn't drink anything!! On the way home from the doctor he threw up all over himself. When I got home and tried to put him in the bath, he developed diahrea. It was awful and it was like this ALL WEEK LONG! I took him back to the doctor on Wednesday and all he said was to give him Pedialyte or Gatorade. Thankfully, Hunter finally started drinking his regular formula. Poor little guy. It was awful. I felt so bad for him. He was a miserable little boy for a few days.
On Wednesday, Keith developed the nasty stomach flu also and had to stay home from work on Thursday. I had Hunter stay with my mom and dad on Friday because I couldn't miss work anymore. Now they both have it! I have not gotten it and I don't plan on getting it. I cannot take anymore days off of work this year! Even though I have only taken 3 days this entire year and I still have about 9 more days, I have a feeling I would be reprimanded for taking too many days. It's stupid, but that's the life of a teacher. Now it will be even worse, since the legislature just decided to make massive budget cuts in education. This has been an awful week!!
