In keeping with more consistent blogging, I am going to try (again) to implement a 5 on Friday here at the bubblehead bride!
1.) Preston turned 1 this week and I am still trying to grasp how that is even possible! He went for his 1 year well visit today, and has fallen off the chart weight wise. If I remember correctly, I don't think he even gained weight since his last visit. His pediatrician has suggested I put him on a "high calorie diet", though I am still trying to figure out how to do that without adding complete junk to his diet. Has anyone been through this before? What did you do?
2.) Preston's first birthday party is tomorrow, which has been months in the making. Initially, Ed and I joked that we weren't going to have a party that he and I would simply share a drink (or a shot) and toast to having survived the first year of parenthood. I got sucked into the fun of party planning, though, and now we are having a little gentleman themed birthday party complete with many of our friends and family and a mustache cake!
3.) The past two weeks have seen lots of visitors at the May household! My mother in law was here for a long weekend over Veterans Day weekend, my family has been here to spend Thanksgiving and Preston's birthday with us, and my father in law and Lorrie arrive tonight for Preston's party. It's been so nice having everyone to visit, it just makes us wish we all lived closer and could visit more often!
4.) I am toying with purchasing photoshop elements. I did a free trial of elements, as well as a free trial of regular photoshop. I loved them both and loved all of the things that I was learning to do with them. Elements is on sale right now through amazon, and I don't really need regular photoshop for the types of things I am going to be doing.
5.) Last week we had Preston's first birthday photos done by Tammy at Meant to Be Photography. She was absolutely wonderful with Preston and was so patient! We were at Shelby Farms playground, so of course, he was taken by all of the other kids playing and the many things that he could stick in his mouth. I picked 20 photos that she is going to edit and I cannot wait to see them when they are done. She captured the essence of my ornery little boy. Here is a sneak peak to leave you with for the weekend...
