Dear Elmer Kai,

I can't believe you have only been in my life for two years now and already you have made me change in ways that would have otherwise taken a life time. Before I had you I couldn't even comprehend just how much my heart could love and now that you are here I can't believe how much that love grows everyday, it seems as if my heart would burst but somehow it just keeps growing. It is so strange to me how someone soo small and soo helpless has changed my life so much. Sleepless nights and almost killing myself tripping over toys isn't what I am talking about either. From the moment they put you in my arms you fell right into my heart and there you have stayed pulling on those heart strings with every laugh, smile, and cry. Mommy LOVES you Elmer Kai, even when I say "No, no" and you cry, I still love you. You are such a special boy with so much to offer this world, I know that God loves me because he gave me you!!! Happy 2nd Birthday my 'tinky poo!!!

ps. His birthday was two days ago, pics to come! The above pic is from visiting Gma house in UT! ;)

The real Elmer Sandwich

I remember the first time I met Elmer I made him show me his ID. I honestly thought he was yanking my chain telling me his real name was Elmer. I had never met an Elmer before and all I could think is who would name their kid ELMER!?!?! :) Little did I know that this handsome guy with a silly name would not only steal my heart but make me fall in love with his name. I am blessed to have three Elmer's in my life and I can honestly say that when I found out Elmer Kai was a boy there was no competition for the name of my baby. I think it suits all three of them perfectly.

The Picture is of my father in law Elmer, my Elmer and of course Elmer Kai at Elmer's brother's wedding. Things tend to get a little confusing when we go to Grandpa's house!

The grass is always greener on the other side...

Lately I have been walking around like this, pants falling to my ankles every time I take a step! Wearing a belt is no solution either, putting one on creates a HUGE MANLY BULGE, and I know you know what I mean...not pretty! My whole life I have struggled with weight, if I would have known that all I needed was a toddler I would have done this whole "mom" thing along time ago. Last night after Kai went to bed I decided to dig THEM out, my skinny jeans.... you know the pair of jeans that you keep, they don't fit you but you keep them because they are where you want to be size wise... you know, those skinny jeans! Well as I was saying, last night I dug them out just to see. I can't tell you how long I have had these things and how many times I would try them on only to have them stop at the knee. Much to my surprise they slipped on easily, I was even able to button them all the way up! What I found to be an even bigger surprise was the pure UNsatisfaction that I felt. There I was standing in my SkInNy JeAnS and all I wanted was a BIG, fat belly with a baby inside....and I still do. Who knows, maybe if I wear my skinny jeans more I just might get that baby...Elmer did say I LOokeD GoOd!
