Week End Fun

Thank you very much for the feed back .. How's this text color? Better/Worse?

I hope yesterday was not too horrible for those still waiting their miracle or hoping for another miracle.

My cousin got married on Saturday and the bride is from Et.hiop.ia. So they had an Ethiopian Celebration at noon. I was worried how MT would do because noonish is our lunch time. Not knowing how long the ceremony would be before food, I loaded up on lots of finger foods to keep him occupied. He did great. There was so much clapping, chanting, laughter, and commotion that kept his attention. He would clap along with everyone and dance to the music. He enjoyed himself. After the ceremony, they served a feast of foods. I actually was able to try a few things and keep it down. They had such a beautiful spread of food. My father, on the other hand,was not into trying anything and asked if he could take MT home to "nap". Which was an excuse for him to run through the Wend'ys drive-thru on his way home. There was a dinner reception that night. (with American food - as my dad said) MT and I missed that part though. I would have loved to been there though. I LOVE dancing and DJ's.

Sunday - Mother's Day. E had to work. MT and I shared a glass of milk and a piece of cake in honor of all the Moms, Moms to be, Mom struggling to be and Mom's missing their children. My dad called to see if we would come over and he would fix My mom and I lunch. So I packed up and headed over. I was actually hungry. This is the first time I have been hungry in weeks. I took the miracle pills and headed out the door. I actually Ate .and wanted to eat. It felt amazing to have food in my body that wanted to be there. I know that I am starting to either figure out how to deal with it or deal with or ..or the Pills are that amazing. Any of the choices - I am grateful. Yesterday, My parent's also ordered us some fu.zzi bunz dipes. Hopefully they are as good as the bu.mge.nius ones I love. I am just going to slowly start adding to our collection.


Today, I have an 11 month old. I am mailing out his party invites and getting pretty nostalgic. He is changing and has changed so much so quick. He is such a little boy now. Independent until he decides otherwise. Once again changing around nap times and sometimes unable to soothe himself to sleep during nap times, Still Teething.

All in all, I am so very blessed. Yesterday MT and I sat in the pool with the sprinkler spraying on us. He wanted to be a big boy and hold the sprayer and walk around the pool but only if I was in the pool too. He wanted to play with the bath toys in the pool but only if I helped .... He wanted to feed himself lunch, but only if I watched. (not the most flattering pic of myself - but whatev) My poor child has been in his crib for 45 mins (yes it took me over an hour to type this - Sad huh) and not able to get to sleep again. I am not sure what the fuss is all about but it's fuss nonetheless. I always blame Teething. Off to rescue My Prince.

Happy Belated Mother's Day!!!

The pink typing is hard to read but I will suffer for you. :o)

At least you got into a swimming suit! HELL NO, here. Not until I get these last 17 pounds off and then I am going to shoot for 20 more.

I am happy to hear you are feeling better! Are you taking Zofran?

I LOVE THE COLORS!!! But it's what you like. Different people will find different things difficult, pretty etc.

The wedding sounds too cool. I can TOTALLY see that as a big MT kinda bash. haha.

Happy Mother's Day, Farah! Great pic of you and your (almost) independent little guy.

I like the pink writing (didn't like the black at all.) Maybe even lighter (almost white) would be better? But I'm not fussy!!

Glad to hear that the meds are working and that you are able to eat again!

Amy - just an FYI - Barb was not calling you or anyone difficult! She was stating that Of course, Everyone is going to have differences with difficulty of text/colors .. because we all have different monitors, settings, vision, etc. Sorry you took it personal. It was in no way a reference to your comment. Thanks for stopping by ..and I asked for opinions because I do not read my own blog in the blog format, I appreciate all the feedback I was given and I have taken all of it into consideration.

Amy said...

((((Fertilized))) thank you hun... I could just hug you because I did feel bad, but I understand now what your saying now, thank you.
