Happy First Birthday!

Today is baby chickypoo's first birthday. One year ago at this time, I was in Labor and Delivery, hooked up to every machine imaginable, screaming at Frank Thomas on the tv. He was DH for the A's that day, and was playing horribly. So there I was all hooked up screaming at the tv, 38 weeks pregnant.

At 7:19 pm, my beautiful chubby little girl made her appearance into this world, and it was the most terrifying, wonderful experience of my life. I consider it a privilege to be her mommy and can't wait to see what the next year brings us.

I love you my sweet angel, you are the world to your daddy and me.

My First Mothers Day Gift

Last year at this time I was miserably swollen and uncomfortable, and pretty bitter. I was scheduled for a c-section on May 19th and no one (except for my dearest friend) would celebrate Mother's Day for me. Pity party, reservation for one, please. No one had a clue baby chickypoo would be making her appearance just a short two days later.

Fast forward to this year, and I have beautiful, fun, smart little girl who is the absolute light of my life. I honestly can't remember my life before her, and I think that's the way it's supposed to be. I struggle with the working mommy guilt, and often feel as though I miss out on important things by working. I look forward to the day, hopefully soon, that I can solely work out of the home and be present for her.

So on my first Mother's Day this year, we went to brunch with some family and had a low key day. Mr. Chickypoo ran into town, and in that 15 minutes he was gone, my sweet little chickypoo gave me my Mother's Day gift. She decided to take her first, stumbling, unassisted steps just for me. Its bittersweet, as this means she's a big girl now and not my helpless little baby, but it was my moment. I finally got my moment.

To my little one,
Thank you for letting me be your mommy. You are my sun, my moon, and my stars, all wrapped into one. I cherish every day with you and will never, ever tire of hearing "mamamama".

I love you so much, thank you for giving me the greatest, hardest, and most fullfilling job ever: Mommy.

Chickypoo's Appearance on GOOD DAY SACRAMENTO

First off, I would like to give a big thanks to the crew over at Good Day Sacramento. They made all of us comfortable and were so excited for our stuff. The models did an awesome job - special thanks to Baby Lorelai, Elliot and Kelsey - and really showcased the stuff for me! Good Day Sacramento even ordered a Raiders themed tutu for Reporter Alan to wear to a Raiders game in the next coming months. So excited!!!

The day was a success and the orders have been rolling in. Thanks to everyone who helped make it a success!
