Happy Mother's Day!! (a little late)

 So, it's been awhile. Needless to say, I've been a little preoccupied. There are been several things that have happened since I last posted. Here they are in no particular order:  we sold our house (yay!!),Nate celebrated his first Easter, Nate celebrated his two month birthday, I celebrated my first Mother's Day, my mom came to town, I started back to work, and Matt finally got a day off!

We sold our house. Finally. Yippee!! Our closing date was changed a few times due to communication problems and a tornado, but we have finally been relieved of our home-owning duties. No more house buying for us until we decide to settle somewhere for awhile.

Nate celebrated his two month birthday on Monday. He is growing so fast!! He is learning so much and it is amazing to watch him progress. We'll be celebrating his one year birthday before I know it!!

He and Mr. Potato Head are good friends!

Nate also celebrated his first Easter. Nate had a pretty rough night before Easter/early morning Easter so we ended up sleeping most of the day, but the Easter bunny came and brought him some goodies! Maybe next year he'll have a better night and we'll make it to church.

Nate's basket of goodies!

For my first Mother's Day Nate got me a laptop. Mine died over a year ago and my brother was kind enough to loan me his 'spare' in the interim. Matt had it set up for me as a surprise when I got home from shopping with my mom. Matt had apparently been planning it for awhile. He and Nate did a great job! :-).

My new computer!

Nate and me on Mother's Day.

My mother came to town a few weeks ago to watch Nate when I went back to work. She has been a huge help. She will take Nate at night so that I can sleep. I can't even begin to imagine what I would be like going to work after staying up with Nate at night! He can be a handful at times and her help has been greatly appreciated!!

I went back to work April 28. I decided to go back on a Thursday because I figured going back for two days would be easier than five. I will admit that being gone for five days last week was rough, but thankfully school is almost out and I'll be home for summer! The kids at school seemed excited to have me back and being back in a routine has been helpful to me.

Poor Matt went the last 21 days of April with no days off. None. Nada. He finally got a day off May 2. Needless to say, I was glad when my mom arrived to help with Nate. Matt would help when he got home from work, but I was the only one getting up with him at night and it was rough!! We're making it though!

 He finally went to sleep with his little hands crossed.
(notice how tired I look!)

 Yep, he still sleeps like this!!

 Happy baby!!

Apparently tummy time means put-your-head-down-and-be-lazy to Nate.

Okay, that's enough for today. Maybe I'll be able to post again soon. We'll have to see what Nate decides to let me do!
