Happy Father's Day!

Though I would rather ramble about my crazy adventures as a first time mom to a spoiled rotten princess, I'll put a sock in it (just for today, lol). Today, I just want to take the time to say thank you to all the dad's in my life (past and present). I was never what you would call a "daddy's girl," but I definitely wouldn't be the person I am today without the love, caring, guidance and influence of each and every one of these special men. To each and every one of you, you know who you are, thank you so incredibly much from the bottom of my heart for everything!

And to Justin, I don't tell you often enough, but I am the luckiest girl in the world (next to Paisley of course) to have you in my life. You are nothing short of amazing! You are an awesome boyfriend and a phenomenal daddy. I can't even begin to tell you how grateful I am for all that you have done and continue to do for us. You never cease to amaze me baby! Happy 1st Father's Day! We love you!

I created this slideshow with some of the pics we just had taken. A couple of the pics are the same that I used in a previous post, but... It turned out too cute not to share ;)

Daddy's Lil Dawg ;-)

We got these pics made yesterday as an early Father's Day gift. I thought they turned out great and wanted to share. (In case you couldn't tell, Daddy's a huge Georgia fan!)

From Princess To Paisenator...

I should've known a day that started out as perfect as Friday was too good to be true. The sun was shining, birds were chirping, life was good :-) Paise and I laughed, played, napped and even squeezed in a afternoon stroll to the mall. All day she wore an ear to ear smile in her normal Princess Paisley fashion, lol. When Justin got home from work, we packed up her things and headed to Aunt Dee & Uncle Tim's house for a fun filled weekend (that was the plan anyway, haha). No sooner did we get home, showered, and ready for bed and the phone rang. It was Dee, my little princess had unleashed the "Paisenator." (That is the ever so affectionate nickname PawPaw Frank gave her that's only used when a major hissy fit is in progress.) We've only ever seen this side of her a hand full of times but, if you've never experienced it in person, it can be overwhelming to say the least. I knew it had to be bad for Auntie Dee to call, so like any good parents would do, we jumped out of bed and raced to the rescue. Bless her little heart, she was definitely not a happy camper. No matter what we tried, bottle, bath, bed, bouncing, you name it my poor baby was inconsolable. Needless to say, we brought her home kicking and screaming and kicking and screaming and... Finally, several hours later, (around midnight to be exact, BIG YAWN!) silence at last! It wouldn't have been so bad if both of us didn't have to get up at 4:30 AM for work (HUGE YAWN!!! LOL!) It was a beating! I can't figure out how I used to be able to go out three our four nights a week on little if any sleep and survive. I guess I ain"t as good as I once was, motherhood can be brutal! Good news is, that Paise woke up a completely new baby this morning and she seems to be feeling well. I just pray she's retired the Paisenator for a while, haha! Despite our sleepiness, we're SO thankful and blessed to have friends like Aunt Dee and Uncle Tim who still agreed to watch our baby girl even if she can be a stinker sometimes! Fingers crossed tonight goes smoother than last!

Domestic Diva

So what if my idea of cleaning house is sweeping the room with a glance? LOL! Unlike most people, I love Mondays. After working all weekend, it's nice to just kick back and relax with the fam. Usually, we make it a point to do absolutely nothing on Monday's besides vegging out and enjoying the day. Today however was different, and I unleashed my inner June Cleaver ;-) I cleaned house, did laundry, paid bills (ugh!), fed Paise carrots for the first time (yummy!), gave her a bath and cooked dinner (try not to laugh to hard, it was delicious!) I think Justin is still in shock, lol! Let's just hope I can be this productive the rest of the week, haha!

This Ain't My First Rodeo...

Finally, I have given into temptation, and decided to join the world of blogging. I was reluctant at first because of my past experiences with social networking sites and of course there's a few select people who for lack of better words "just need to get a clue." I figured now's as good a time as any to start journaling my adventures in mommyhood considering I have a four month old and I don't foresee my life slowing down anytime in the near future :-) So here's hoping I don't bore you to tears and hope you enjoy.
