Month of Mayhem

OK so maybe not mayhem. If anything it's been a pretty relaxing month. Chandler is a month old today. Or 4 weeks and two days. That has always confused I go by weeks as in from Friday to Friday? Or do I go by the 5th of each month. Whatever, either way he's a month old. It's so hard to believe that a month ago we FINALLY got the call that it was our turn to go in and be induced. Which reminds me, I'm well overdue for a birth story blog. The baby fever that I had September 2011 was kicked into full gear April 5th. Can you have baby fever when you have a baby? I guess I figured out how. He's so perfect and the biggest mama's boy ever. I hope that continues to be the case. To an a certain point it's going to be a little weird. But I don't want to think about that. I wish he could be this size forever.

- Loves far he has been sung into a nice calm submission by Iration & Brad Paisley...he's
  culturally diverse

- Instantly stops crying and goes to sleep if you lay next to him in bed

- Being swaddled up a la straight jacket style is oddly comforting

- Swaddled and being bounced in the mine

- Starting to look more like Carson

I realize that I sound like every other mom that thinks the ground their kid walks on is golden (and I do), but that's not what Chandlerisms are about. He prefers different things than what Carson did and this is my way of keeping track. Speaking of Carson, we have had a baseball filled weekend. She had a game yesterday, then we went to a Tides game and there's a Tides game on the agenda for today too.

This picture sums up tee ball/coach pitch...always someone stopping to smell the roses...or play in the dirt

I am so glad that she loves baseball as much as I do/did. I don't know what I would do if she didn't. She is so eager to move up to minors and play with the bigger girls. She wants to pitch, so we work on that every once in a while. Pretty sure she's better at it then I was. Pitching was not my thing. I should keep a tally of how many games she has growing up. Future shadowbox/project maybe?
