Its that time of the month again, I finally sat down to scrap. I'm so unmotivated lately, I wish I could get more done! Here are the pages I did. A acquaintance of mine lost her 16 year old daughter in a car accident this past weekend. It was an emotional morning with friends discussing what happened, and seeing the Mom. It just made me want to scrap more of the things that happen on a daily basis, so I don't let the everyday memories slip away, ya know? This is what I came up with. Excuse the grammar errors, I should have wrote it out on another piece of paper before and proofread, but oh well.
The journaling reads...

My built in alarm clock...AKA you, woke me up at 6:12am! Way too early for you & I was tired!!! I changed your diaper, got your milk cup, and we went back into my bed to cuddle. I really just wanted a few more minutes of sleep! You began to wiggle your upper body, which is your baby sign for when you want to watch the TV show "The Wiggles." It's so cute!!! I showered while you ate breakfast. We had MOPS today, and we made it out of the door on time! You were a big helper this morning, and actually waited patiently at the door...while waving "bye bye." (as I gathered last minute stuff) At MOPS we got out of the car, and you saw Rhiannon. You immediately go give her a hug...completely unprompted by anyone. <3. You are such a sweet boy! After MOPS, we had lunch. You finished your grapes and said "mama" then signed "more" then said "ball" meaning....more grapes Mommy! Nap time was from 1:15 - 3:45! You woke up crying after sleeping for an hour, but i'm thakful you went back to sleep for another hour+! I enjoy the break of nap time!
After you woke up, we read a few books on the couch, and watched a few more minutes of "The Wiggles." Then we went out to Moreno Valley to get you a few pairs of play shorts...it was almost 100 degrees today! We got home about 5:15 and Daddy was home from work. You LOVE when Daddy gets home! We all played in the family room for a while. Fun stuff! I helped you practice your jumps for The Little Gym in the morning. You kept trying to sneak up behind me, and you would laugh hysterically! You would push my back with your arms, and you thought that was even funnier! You had both Daddy and I cracking up! Next was dinner time. You had veggies, fruit, and some yogurt. Go figure...thats ALL you will eat! You threw a FIT the night before when I offered you a chicken nugget and ketchup. I call you my little vegetarian. After dinner Daddy filled up the bath for you. I came in to take a few pictures since I don't have any recent bath pictures. All of the sudden, you lean over to the side, and take a big poop in the bathtub. Nice! I LOVE cleaning a poopy bathtub! (insert sarcasm here) We got the you and the tub cleaned up and then it was bedtime. After we played with you wrapped in your puppy towel of course! We bark and call you Carter the doggie...you love it. You pant like a dog the whole time. After a story, hugs, kisses and prayers....you were out for the night at 7:35. Sleep tight baby boy....hopefully past 6:12am!

great page! I love simple moments pages. Those are the things missing from the books upon books of old polaroids from when I was a kid. It's those memories when they are raising their own little ones that will mean the most.
