5 months ago today my little man was born....wow, how time is flying! I can remember vividly seeing him for the first time. Nothing will ever be able to compare to the moment of pure bliss when I held my first born son. I love him like no other and would do absolutely anything for him. The saying is true that once you have a child, it's like having your heart live outside your body. It's such an awesome feeling to be able to provide 100% support and love for such a tiny being. This is the hardest most rewarding job in the entire world and I wouldn't trade all the trying times for anything! Hunter's new acomplishments include sitting up all by himself for minutes at a time, eating rice cereal with a spoon, and scooting on his belly in circles and small spaces. He is a jumping bean machine. He could sit in his jumperoo for hours playing with and talking to his favorite toy attachment "Mr. Bug". Poor Mr. Bug is saturated with so much saliva, he had no chance :) Although I would like to believe that Hunter will forever be a momma's boy, he is proving to be a daddy's boy more and more each day. He adores Daniel like there is no tomorrow. I will be with Hunter all day long pulling out all my bag of tricks to make Hunter laugh or even give me a smile, but as soon as daddy walks in the door, Hunter's face lights up and he immediately has a huge grin on his face. I have a feeling as Hunter grows up he will be just like daddy and will want to do everything daddy does. What an awesome experience to be able to sit and watch the bond Daniel and Hunter have. Now, I will say that when it comes time to cuddle and be soothed, Hunter looks for his momma! He is such an awesome snuggler, I know I will miss these days when he gets too big to be held. Some mornings I will lay Hunter beside me in bed and we will just stare at each other and coo, giggle, and talk together. This is one of my favorite parts of the day. He tells me about how much he misses me at night while he is sleeping, how he thinks Toby is the most hilarious doggie, and how much he loves to grab his toes. I tell him how wonderful he has made my life, how much me and his dad love him, and how I can't wait to teach him everything there is to know about life....we have such a good time. :)
On another note, we have made some improvements on our house that makes me so proud of turning a house into our home. We bought new carpet and a new dryer when we first moved in back in September. Most recently, we got new windows installed. They look gorgeous...I call them HD windows since they are so crystal clear....and they have already saved us about $100 on our electric bill. We bought 2 new storm doors, 1 for the front door and 1 for the back door, should be arriving any day now. We bought a new dishwasher and it's so quiet compared to our old one that I swear was older then I am. We laid down grass seed about 2 months ago so now we have new lush green grass in the backyard. The last few projects we have to do is put a rail post on our front porch stairs, purchase new countertops for the kitchen, and finally replace our chain link fence (yuck) in the backyard for a wood private fence. I love how our house is starting to feel personalized and reflects our style more and more.
So as you can see, lots of exciting stuff going on in the Morrison household right now!
