First Mother's Day

I had a terrible night last night with the Hud. Not sure if it was because we didn't stick to his bedtime routine due the Pacquiao fight, or if he's going through his 3 month growth spurt. Yep, that's right, 3 months. How time flies!
Anyhow, I got very little sleep last night... but this morning, the hubby gave me the sweetest card, along with 2 dozen roses. Hudson gave me a cute card as well :)
We then went for a walk around the hood, and hung out with our pups at home.
That was then followed by lunch with my family, and then dinner with his family.
We are planning on celebrating again one day this week- this time, it would just be for our family. It's hard when we are trying to accommodate everyone, and since I'm not high up on the mom seniority list, it feels as if it's not really my day.

Oh, well. It is what it is.

On A Side Note

2 postings in one day... Wow! A rare occasion indeed!

Anyhow, I really miss my old body. I miss fitting into my old clothes, shoes.
I miss my non chubby face.

Sunshine comes after the rain

Hudson is A LOT better!
We struggled with colic and reflux for a while, but he has improved drastically!
He started seeing our homeopathic doctor, along with his pediatrician, and with a few formula changes, he is now the picture of a healthy baby boy!
I am so grateful that we are no longer trying to console a baby who has been crying for 6 hours straight. Gone are the days of sleeping in our rocking chair, incessant crying and screams of pain. It's like we have a different child- one who is constantly happy and always playing.

Motherhood surely isn't for sissies as I've come to realize. It's a lot of work, a lot more than I've ever imagined. But yet despite the work, the rewards are priceless!
