Oh Jesus please don't let me forget this.....

There are a few things that I can vaguely remember about motherhood.

I kinda remember what it was like to give birth.
I kinda remember what it was like to breastfeed.
I kinda remember what sleepless nights are like.

But I ask, no no no, I BEG Jesus to never let me for get how I feel right now.  On Monday September 26th at 4:15. I want to remember this moment forever.

A snail of a tale.

Ok, so they are not snails, but slugs. And this isn't much of a tale about them but seriously, could a mama and daddy slug be more adorable? Do you see what they are hugging? Well I assume it is a baby snail egg (do snails lay eggs?) how sweetly adorable.
Well back to my family. The 3 weeks of summer that we had here in Seattle was so much fun and I loved every moment of letting my boy go outside naked. But atlas we are back to after nap play times in our pajamas. Well, I will take what I can get:) I just love watching my boy turn into a REAL boy and relish any amount of time he gets outside.
When we get outside his first request is "Naked please mama" and he tugs at his diaper. Melt my heart, he loves to be naked and for some reason I find that SO endearing. 

This weekend we had Daniels mom and dad over as well as his sister, her husband and their 3 (yes 3!) girls (all 4 and under) over and we hit the zoo. And it was so great (until nap time hit:) And when I say that I must admit that I no longer look at parents with judgmental eyes when their kids throw fits. Let's be serious. A toddler fit has VERY little to do with discipline and MASS amounts to do with luck (time of day, how well a nap went, how good a snack was...I could go on for days on the variables effecting a toddlers attitude).
OK, I am off the tangent...the ZOO!

My boy straight up is a natural at goat feeding. Be jealous. Because God knows I didn't demonstrate this calmness around farm animals to him. 

I always (secretly) want Tenn to pee on his fathers neck.... well just 5% of me does.  I am a terrible person, I know.

This is what my nightmares are made of.

If you can recall our vacation with the Cole/Towell clan last year you will remember Tenn flipped out on a Carousel ride. Well we decided to NEVER pay money again for him to go on one. This kid is out of control. Hand into a goats mouth but won't sit on a fake horse....
Or a chair surrounded by fake horses. This is right about when Daddy got off the ride and handed me my kid with a "you do it" face:)


When we reached the aquarium of the zoo Tenn spent 20 minutes looking for Nemo, and we finally found him.

Happy Sunday.

And beyond.

Grandmas are good for a lot of things. The least of which is presents. Tenn got the best gift from his gramma during her last visit. Lets just say that her visit lined up perfectly with new Disney store opening at Southcenter Mall:)
Tenn hasn't wanted to take off his new outfit since.....

What can't you do in a Buzz outfit?

Since we need this costume to stay presentable until Halloween we decided that outside is off limits. Beside, Tenn would much rather help his father out with yard work then fly around....

And lastly Tenn moved into a big boy bed (I use that term loosely, since we just took off the side of his crib) and he has been doing better then I ever imagined. From reading other mama blogs I imagined I would have to bring him back too his room 20 plus times a night but he has only gotten out of bed by himself once! In all 2 1/2 weeks of being in a big boy bed he has gotten off his bed once and the sweet boy even waits in bed for me to come get him in the morning.
Thank you Jesus for hearing my prayers!!
