Mother's Day

I was pretty excited for Mother's Day this year (duh). Mark is such a sweet heart (but extremely manly of course, right honey? ;) He's been teaching himself how to code and all that tech-y stuff that I am clueless about. I didn't know that he had been making a site for our family, so when he handed me a piece of paper that said "" (Go ahead and look; I know you're just dying of curiosity), I was pretty surprised. He wrote me a sweet message on the site and promised to add to it as we go on trips and Noah gets older. He wants me to tell everyone that it's a work in progress. I'll still write on this blog but he'll keep that one up (I'm the type of wife who harps on him for not keeping an up-to-date journal. I use ammunition like: "what if I die and you don't have anything to say about our life together? Our children will think I was the devil!" Terrible, I know. Now this will be a way for him to contribute to our family's story. It was the best present that I could have ever ask for! 
The iPad was pretty surprising too. (No wonder he made this week a "spending freeze" for me! Darn medical bills!)
I joke that he's totally enabling my bad habits of watching too much Netflix (Gossip Girl is my current obsesh) while Noah is napping and nursing. He even said, "Now instead of carrying Noah and your big laptop, you can carry the iPad! It will be much easier." Oh boy, did I ever marry the right man. (My love for TV will be in another post. I used to be embarrassed about it, but I've learned to embrace it. Shameless I tell you.)

This is the little guy who's responsible for qualifying myself as a mama. My little hellion.
Don't let those sweet cheeks fool you. The week leading up to Mother's Day was one for the books. Luckily he snapped out of it by Monday :)
He knows that every time I put my phone up and say "Look!" or "Noah, Smile!" to look at me and ham it up. I've trained you well, my son.


  1. What an awesome Mother's Day gift! I might have to make Matt read this to give a little hint. I harp on him for not writing more, too. I LOVE to hear the voices of people I love through their writing. It's one of my favorite things. Like a glimpse into their brains or thought processes. Way to go Mark! And happy first Mother's Day to you, Amy!
