A charmed life

Thank you, thank you to all of you bloggers out there that left such wonderful congratulatory comments! I have read all of them and really appreciate them. : )

Life is so sweet right now. I know that I am still on Cloud 9 with this little guy. He is everything I could have ever hoped for and then some. I love this picture, he looks like he is celebrating a victory in his sleep.

DH works with a great guy down at the Port, and we have spent some time at their home for barbeques. They had a baby a couple of weeks ago also. The other day, he dropped off this arrangement of flowers for us. They are so gorgeous in person, I can't hardly believe that they came out of his yard. But, that is just another beauty of island living, the wonderful tropical flowers.
I haven't done any crafting, really. I did start reading a book that Jenn sent me, "Love, Rosie". I really like it so far, but it is just hard trying to find time to read. I hope to eventually be able to read while we nurse, but for now we are still in the learning phase so it requires all of my attention.

Continuing with my happy theme today, I got an email announcement that my guy, Barack Obama has decided to take the first step in running in 2008!!! YAY!!! That makes me incredibly happy. There is a video here. Or you can read the text here. He is just filing the papers to create a presidential exploratory committee, but it is the first step! WooHoo!!!

I have so much to catch up on, but it will have to wait for a while longer. I have a handsome little man that needs me. Hard to believe that he will be a week old tomorrow!

Oh I love that photo - he's so cute!

The time does go so fast. Tomorrow you'll be wondering how your little man got to 5 months old already! Enjoy every minute - it's out of this world watching them develop their own little personalities. Wait til those smiles start to appear - your heart will really melt then.

Good look with the nursing. I hope it's going well for you and you're not 'too sore' with it.

Congratulations! He is a gorgeous baby! I know he will bring you much joy!

I decided the other day to learn about Saipan, since I knew absolutely nothing about it other than have had hearing the name. What a gorgeous island! We spend time in Hawaii at our time share every 18 months and it reminds me alot of our much loved islands! We may have to extend the trip a little further one of these days!!!

Again, you will love being a mommy, especially after the difficult first month is over! Enjoy this special time!
