Some pictures from the week

Connor and I both fell in love with the show Glee this week. He watches the same song about 20 times in a row.
Me and Connor at Chilis
He had so much fun playing not eating the wood chips.
Connors 1st sucker. I hate messy things and Connor together. But he had been such a good boy and I knew he would love it.
Luckily he didnt get to sticky but I kept telling myself its ok if he gets messy its ok if he gets messy. Im working on it!!
We had just a normal week. I have really been trying though to take more pictures. So I am pretty happy that I had some photos from the week.

Really Barney

So all of you know I love TV. I am a reality TV junky and cant ditch the goofy teeny bopper shows. So I have been anticipating the day that Connor would actually watch a TV show. I happen to really enjoy the kids shows that are out there. some of them are so cute and pretty educational. One day, by chance Barney was on and that was it, Connor was hooked. He loves it. Me on the other hand, Barney drives me nuts. But when Connor hands you the remote and says baba what can you do. Connor says baba for everything he wants. Thank goodness for DVR we record Barney everyday and end up watching it about 6 times through out the day. I try other shows and he has no interest in them at all. Maybe someday before for now its the purple dinosaur for the Burtons.

Fish fun

Jared had the day off today so we decided to go to the Sea Life Aquarium in Carlsbad. Its connected to Lego Land it seemed like a lot of fun. Connor is finally at the age were we can start taking him to places like this. It was a little pricey, but was pretty cool. Connor had a blast just walking all around and following the fishes. It was pretty hard to get any good pictures because Connor was glued to the tanks. It was a great day to go because it wasn't crowded at all, we pretty much had the place to our selves. Connor even got to hold a star fish. He was such a good boy!!!

Mothers day

So I like to celebrate any kind of holiday or birthday to the fullest, so my Mothers day started today. It was such a wonderful day!! I was able to go to my brother Mikeys play today Pirates of Penzance. It was so amazing and mikey was awesome. He had tons of solos and really was the star. I was a very proud momma. I know mikey isn't my son but he is my baby boy. Jared stayed home with Connor and I went with my mom. My mom is my best friend so its always fun to do things just me and her. Who doesn't like one on one time with there mommy??? After I was informed that Connor was "freaking out" in the words of Jared, I rushed home. I spent the rest of the afternoon playing with Connor and shopping. Jared was so sweet to me this year. He got me the new Juicy Couture perfume I love and than let me go pick out a new purse. I have buyers remorse about everything i buy so i typically never get anything for myself. So it was nice to get such nice stuff. I can't believe that this is my second Mothers day already. Last year Connor was only a month old and now this Mothers day he's running everywhere and I mean running. Being a mommy is the greatest hardest thing I could ever be doing with my life and am so grateful I have Connor. He is my whole world. I love that I'm the only one to get him to go to bed. I love that he kisses me out of the blue on his own. I love watching him grow. Needless to say I LOVE CONNOR!!!
Pictures we took tonight
I love the face he is giving me

Tommorow is the day

I have really been putting off losing the rest of my baby weight. Before I got married I worked really hard and lost a bunch of weight and loved and felt sooo good about myself. I mean don't get me wrong I was never a size 2, or will I ever be or care to be. But I just liked where i was at. Once I found out I was pregnant I guess you can say I went a little overboard and ended up gaining too much weight. It didn't help that I had preclampsea and was swollen as can be as well. Once I had Connor I dropped like 30 pounds really easy, due to all the water weight and swelling going down. But I just haven't had the motivation to do anything about the rest of it. I know everyone says tomorrow I'm starting a diet so they can give themselves permission to pig out that night. believe me I do it all the time. But this time its different. Im doing it with my sisters and there's money involved. I guess you can say I'm a little bit competitive. (Breanne if you're reading this you know has anyone ever beaten us at taboo?) I love to win. We all have about the same amount of weight to lose and we are all going on a family vacation at the end of July. So we have the dead line set and the winner gets money. Even if I don't win, but i plan on it, I will just feel so much better about me and finally fitting back into my pre-pregnancy clothes. Because we all know I am not going to be pregnant again anytime soon.

First Beach Trip

Now that Connor is walking, which by the way I hate. Well I Guess hate is a strong word. We decided we would let him go walk around on the sand. He loved it!!! Myself on the other hand, I hate the beach. I know, what kind of California girl am I. Its just I hate sand. It gets everywhere and its hard to clean. But i knew Connor would love it. So I put my OCD to the side and we went. If we wouldn't have stopped him he would have ran right into the water. He loves to be in water. Which I am very excited we have a pool for the Summer. Pools I can do, no sand. It was fun though to watch him play in the sand and pick up rocks and try pick up sea weed (I do draw the line there) He was way to distracted to get any good pictures so these were the best of the worst.
