Happy Mothers Day!!!

It's finally warm again! We had a rainy weekend, which I love but it was a chilly rain so we were stuck inside. I am so scared to go outside in the rain also because the frogs come out... eeek. Anyone who knows me knows of my"irrational fear" (as my dad would say, of snakes and frogs.. really anything lizardy and slimy. Anyway I have had quite a time entertaining Miss Sophie. I am quite relieved that it is nice today. When she wakes up I think we are gonna go for a walk.

Things are going fantastic in Indianapolis. We love it here! Spence is keeping nice and busy and I am having fun with all of the wives and kids. Days fly by when you have a kid.¸ I am absoloutly loving my new camera. It is so fun to experiment with. I am not the greatest photographer but I am learning.
Anyway for all of my family that is reading this we miss you terribly! We sure love you all! Thanks for letting me be so lazy before I left. I was so spoiled! I am remembering that doing this "mom" thing on my own is hard work! :) Anyway Kara and Kimber- this part is for you--- BOOK YOUR TICKETS! Sophie needs you to cuddle her everynight in her bed and I need you to go shopping with.

And this part is for my mom! Mom, thanks for being such a good mom! I know I called yesterday for mothers day but I just want you to know that I missed you especially lots yesterday! Thanks for all you do and all that you have taught me in my life. I look up to you and respect you so much. You have been such an awesome example to me in my life. You have taught me how to be a mom and a wife and taught me that family is the most important thing. You always say how lucky you are that your kids love eachother and its because you and dad didnt give us a choice when we were little. You taught us that friends come and go but family is ALWAYS there so we better get used to it. Thank you for that. Thank you for teaching us discipline, even though we hated it at times I am so grateful for it now. You are such an important person in my life and I am soooo grateful that you are my mom.

Anyway this is a VERY long post. I feel so behind on the blogging. I need to start posting every other day so that I dont have to do such hideously long posts. Anyway hope everyone had a Happy Mothers Day. I know I did! I love being a mom! I will admit there are times that I really miss the days of just Spence and I, sleeping in, spontaneous road trips, peace and quiet- but I would not trade being a mom for anything. Sophie is the sweetest little girl and I feel so privelaged to be her mom.

Loving the new pictures! That flower headband is adorable, and she looks comf in that cute little sun dress. Wouldnt it be fun to just throw on a sun dress in the morning a be off. lol And also... her HAIR!!! You could totally round brush a little bob on that girl! Thats kind of the ultimate thing for me... the day when I can round brush Lolas hair. Is it funny being back in Indy only this time as a full time momma? Jess always laughs at me because now when were at Applebees or wherever I'm right in there picking up dropped forks for like the hundreth time, and trying to keep Lola happy, when before I was so carefree. That little Sophie is such a doll she seems so packed with personality! Lola says hi!

I love her hair! It is so long and cute. I hear that you bought a Rebel XTi camera. They are great cameras and worth every penny, if you ask me. Glad to see you are enjoying Indy already.

Sophie is gorgeous. I forgot about your "irrational" fear of frogs (and other things), it kind of cracks me up, but I have a totally irrational fear of spiders and pirahnas, so I know where you're coming from.

Don't you just love this age? 14-20 months I think is my absolute favorite stage, so make sure to savor it. They are so cute, and getting so smart!
