We took little Charlie to his first major league baseball game!
I know it was a proud moment for my husband, who has been a dodger fan all his life.
The sun came out and we were toasting in our top deck seats!
We were only at the game for an hour then decided to head home and avoid the traffic.
Little Charlie had a great time and cheered whenever others cheer and clapped when others clapped, he was so darling!

the farmers market

I've been to LA many times and my FAVORITE place to visit is the farmers market.
So if you're planning a trip to LA soon, please put this on the itinerary.
We walked around the shops and had brunch at the yummy French Crepe Co.
We then walked around the Grove and stood behind Mario Lopez, you know Slater from Saved by the Bell! I guess he has a tv show and reports on celebrities. I really didn't think we would be on tv but we watched his show that night and you could see our faces for about 1 second! So fun!

flying solo

Me and little Charlie flew down to California early last week to celebrate Easter and our 3 year wedding anniversary. My hubby had to finish finals so he flew down 2 days after.
I was expecting the worst, even though our little guy has flown more in his 1 1/2 years of life than I did in my first 20 years!
Luckily, my prayers were answered and the flight was half full and we sat next to the sweetest guy!! This guy pulled out his iphone and let Charlie play with it for 30 minutes straight and was so nice. We had a few rows behind us that were empty so I took little Char to our own row for him to stand up and play.
It was the BEST flight I have ever been on, even with a toddler in tow!!
I would still prefer to have my hubby there with me of course, but this flight made it so easy.

almost there

Graduation has been on my mind these last few weeks.
Probably because I will be graduating in JULY!!
To be clear, I will be completely done with my bachelors in December but I wanted to walk a semester early. Let's be honest, who wants to come to Idaho in December?? not me.

I finished up my winter semester last week and this week has been pure bliss.
I have taken a nap everyday with little Charlie,
I've gone to bed before midnight and I don't have to spend hours online.
Only 7 more classes to go!

tomato paste that is.
Little Charlie opened one of our many cupboards and found this can of tomato paste today.
Who would have thought it would be the new 'it' item for toddlers?!
He carried it around all day and even took it to the grocery store this afternoon.
I almost had to reassure the cashier that this can was from home.
He is too funny, he won't let me change his diaper unless he is holding it.
I only wish this new 'it' toy wasn't a metal can because Charlie dropped it on my foot tonight and it hurt so bad. I'm hoping tomorrow brings a softer and lighter toy than the tomato paste!
I only wish I snapped photos of him, but we'll see what tomorrow brings!

4:00 AM

Little Charlie woke up yesterday morning at 4:00 AM with a bunch of snot all over his adorable face. Poor thing couldn't sleep with a runny nose and needed his
mommy to make him feel better.
I can't remember the last time I woke up at 4:00 AM to tend to my baby.
It brought me back to his newborn nights where I was up with him.
Just me and my baby.

{ my little Charlie at one week }

I enjoyed the 2 hours that early morning to help blow his nose and sit with him on the couch watching cartoons. We laughed at the silly characters and right when I was starting to feel tired, little Charlie put his head on my lap and fell soundly asleep.
We both went back to our beds and slept till 9:30.
It was nice.

yellow daffodils

Yellow daffodils graced our humble garden this morning
and I knew right where I wanted to place them in my home.
Little Charlie helped me pluck the flowers, fill up the vase with water and
left the arranging for him to decide.
He did a pretty good job if I don't say so myself.

my husband

Charlie is such a wonderful husband, more than I deserve.
He is a strong spiritual leader in our home
leading family home evenings, family scripture study and prayers.
Charlie has a wonderful personality and is a natural with people.
He is very humble and only asks for things that he needs, something I can learn.
He is dedicated to his family and puts our needs first.
Charlie helps me become a better person every day and I am so grateful for him.
I love you Charlie xoxoxoxo
