The next morning Jason, Brody and I set out for a early morning walk (forgot my camera), we ended up walking for 2 hours (5 miles-ish), much further than we had planned. There is a great trail by our house that is very scenic. Brody was great and slept most of the trip and when he was awake he just enjoyed the scenery.
He smiles a lot however if you are home alone and trying to get snap shots of him smiling, it's a lot tougher than a person would think. I even do a "smile for the camera Brody"...LOL, umm clearly he's not aware that what I say goes just yet as he doesn't smile until AFTER i put the camera down!

This week posed a few challenges at the Ward household as Sunday Brody came down with a cold after only 1 week at daycare; lots of coughs, sneezes, watery eyes and boogers galore. Poor little guy couldn't sleep laying down as he couldn't breathe so he spent the next 3 nights sleeping more upright in his bouncy next to our bed. I finally had to pull out the trusty bulb syringe we got at the hospital. Funny how that prior to having a baby, I was always so grossed out to see moms wiping their baby's nose with bare hands and picking boogers...now, well I'm "one of them", not so gross when its your own baby! Ahhh Motherhood! He seems to be feeling better but still continues to sneeze, I though perhaps that he had allergies but the pediatrician said that he's too young for allergies that it has to be a cold. I know this is the first of many colds our little guy will get but it's still his first so I had to write about it!

Prior to leaving for brunch, Jason brought out a special little box (you know the smaller boxes that all woman love!!)...my first Mother's Day gift. I squealed with excitement as I untied the ribbon to see that the box said "David Yurman"...inside was a beautiful bracelet with amethyst stones (Brody's birthstone) on each side. I was thrilled with the gift, it's beautiful and I will always cherish my first gift. As I told Jason, he set the bar REAL high for Mother's Day!!
The best news that came out of week 1 at daycare...BRODY NOW SLEEPS THROUGH THE NIGHT! I of course still have to get up to pump but its much easier on both Jason and I and we are loving our little guys new sleep schedule!
Brody rrreallllllyy likes Tara...he couldn't stop placing his hand in her shirt and when he wasn't doing that he was all smiles for her!
Last week Brody and I stopped by to meet our newest neighbor, Wyatt! You forget how small newborns are, he's such a little guy in comparison to Brody! Camie and I were hoping for a good photo of the boys together, both awake but Brody zonked out

Today Jason and I received a little note and picture from Brody at daycare (he's very advanced for his age)! It was such a great surprise in my day to get a couple of pictures of him! He must have had a diaper mishap as this is not the outfit i sent him to "school" in!
I am having a fantastic day! I really am so alert today and I had a lot of fun laying on the ABC mat and looking at myself in the mirrors. Hope you enjoy the pictures!

Jason also took advantage of having a "handy man" in the house. He and Wayne installed two storm doors...a fancier one for the front door (which Dolly is just loving so she can look outside) and a more basic one for the garage. Both of these will help circulate the breeze through the house, which will be great this summer!
Thanks for your help Wayne!
And of course...just like when Brody was just a wee one at 3 weeks old and my mom left and I cried...at week 12 when she left yesterday I cried again! I'm so thankful for my mom and am grateful that she had the time to spend with Brody!
THANKS NANA, WE MISS YOU ALREADY!!!
