Pimpin’ Connor’s Ride

Check out this hunk.

Now, that picture right there, is going straight into his senior yearbook ūüėČ Sorry bud, just paying it forward.

I got this Step2 Buggy from our local Facebook Resale page for $5 last year.¬† This boy LOVES it. We take the dogs for a walk after dinner every night and he loves driving his car around the neighborhood.¬† In fact, “a car!” has become one of his favorite phrases, as he insists on pointing out ALL of the cars on the road, and making all of the car sounds.¬† Best $5 I’ve ever spent.

Connor’s Birth Story

Connor is 1 year old today. I can’t believe it. I just can’t get over the fact that he didn’t exist before that, because it’s so hard to imagine life without him now. He has brought so much joy and a brand new meaning to our lives. It was a year of ups and downs and constant learning from¬†triumphs and mistakes, but that’s parenthood, right?

So, I figured today, on his birthday, I’d share his birth story. ¬†Partly because I’ve been wanting to write it for so long, and this has forced me to. But also, because I absolutely love hearing and reading other’s birth stories (what mom doesn’t??) ¬†I want to be able to remember all of the details about that amazing moment that he entered this world and became our amazingly handsome and precious son. ¬†I wanted to get David to participate in this too, so a la “The Magnolia Story” style (it’s a cute¬†little book, I totally recommend), if you see anything written in italics, that’s David talking.

I bought her that book as a Christmas stocking stuffer, so in a way this was my awesome idea.

So if you’re not interested in a super personal story, I don’t advise you to read on. ¬†I wanted to share it because I think it could be enjoyable and educational for other mamas. ¬†And because at Connor’s one year birthday, and the rest of my life, ¬†I can relive that experience through this story.

I’m not sure she really wants to relive ALL of it…
