Becoming Your Parents !!!!

It is strange when you realize you are becoming your parents. Many of my friends have always told me that I will be just like my mom but I never really believed them until now. I see traits from both of my parents coming through. Some funny things I have begun to do like my parents include...
*After 10:00pm I get a bit goofy, thanks to trish
* I am paranoid about money, thanks to rog
*I make up the most random songs for andrew just like I always made fun of my mom for doing
*I express my love for everything and everyone almost to a fault just like my dad always did

Of course I could continue naming them off one by one but I will end there.

Maybe I should be scared or worried but I think more than anything I am greatful because my parents are some of the greatest people I have ever known. I actually hope I continue to be more and more like them.

I love you guys!

Signs of Momhood

Being a mom is amazing. You don't understand until you have been there. I love my husband more than ever but my love for my baby is different. I would do anything for him. Even act like a goof. Your life completely changes when they arrive. Some might think it is a burden but I love every second of it. These are some signs of momhood I have experienced,

1. You start offering to cut up other peoples food
2. I play peek-a-boo in the middle of the grocery store
3. You only have time to shave one leg.
4. You get excited about the word Ball
5. Your child thrws up and you catch it.
6. You count the sprinkles on a cupcake to make sure they are equal. ( not experienced with my own kid but have with nieces and nephews)
7. You take a portable potty everywhere since it is the only one they will use. (again with nieces and nephews)
8. You get excited over had been awhile since the last one if you know what i mean.
9. When someone elses kid screams in an airplane for an hour and a half it doesn't even phase you.
10. The song stuck in your head while you fall asleep is the ABC's
11. You can be mad as ever at them but as soon as you see them sleep you forget anything that ever made you mad.

Balls, Balls, Balls

Okay, so andrew officially said his first word today. I mean he always sits and chats away to himself saying mamama and dadada but hasn't clicked what they mean.
Andrew and I were playing pass and I asked him to pass me the ball. He then said it. I was so excited and made a big deal about it so for the rest of the day he continued to say it whenever he saw a ball. The little things that make you excited hu?

Better Late Than Never

We had such a great Christmas season. We were able to see Santa. Many of the other cousins didn't like him too much but Andrew thought he was real cool with a fun beard. We celebrated Christmas Eve with all the cousins playing the quarter game, bingo, having a great program full of lots of singing and playing instruments, and eating lots of treats. We were lucky to have the Murry family and one of the many Tullis families there to sleep over. Collin and Andrew ended up having the same Christmas PJ's. Andrew had so much fun on Christmas morning. He didn't understand why Kevin and I woke him up at 6 in the morning but once he saw his toys that Santa brought him then he was okay. So anyway, Merry Christmas......just a bit too late.

Mazie Isabella Tullis

Andrew is pleased to announce the arrival of his cousin Mazie Isabella Tullis. We are so excited to finally get her here safe and sound. Anne was on bed rest for a few weeks to keep that baby in a bit longer and it worked. It was so fun to have them around and get to see so much of Collin. It is even more fun to have this cute baby in our family. She has so much hair. It is so thick you can't even see her scalp. But I guess it is okay because she did agree to give Andrew her secrets. Congrats Adam and Anne we love you!
