Ohhh...and Awwww :)

Ohhhh!! The temperature's been sweltering hot...unusually hot for this time of the year! It's been SOOO hot that our peonies, lily of the valley, white roses, and lilacs are already out in full bloom! Crazy!! Good thing we've got tons of beaches in every direction you drive in - ahhh...I love island living! LOL

Now for the Awwwwww part!!! My friend, Tara just had a baby girl last month, so my mom and I went to visit her and little Skylar! We came bearing presents, as unfortunately, my mom and I LOVE shopping for baby stuff!!! I got Skylar her first pair of baby shoes. They are the cutest!! Little pink kickers! I also got her a bib that says "I love Daddy" and a bunch of wash cloths, as I know they'll come in handy. From my mom, she got her first Winnie-the-Pooh. Toooo cute!

Having a little one around is so wonderful! They just brighten up everyone's day. This is terrible...the wedding's 2 weeks away and I want one already!!! Anyway, my mom couldn't get her hands off of little Skylar. As soon as Tara finished breastfeeding, my mom just HAD TO burp her! LOL A few minutes later, Skylar had the hiccups! Poor thing! Then she started crying :( I told my mom, "Pass her to me. Let's see if this works." I took the little babe and did the swaying/rocking/walking around thingy and sure enough, the hiccups disappeared and not only did she stop crying, but she also fell asleep!!! LOL Tara and my mom were both like, "Oh! HOW did you do that???"

I could have said it was my magic touch, but I said, "That's just because she likes the extra padding!" (meaning my boobs!) Never fails...ever! All babies fall asleep on my chest! LOL My poor mom looked down at her chest and said, "Hmph! I guess you're right!" Mind you, my mom is soooo little...she's so petite, that she weighed 75 lbs on her wedding day!!!

*sigh* Be still my beating uterus...I can't wait for J and me to have our own little one! Holding Skylar only reiforces how much I want to have a baby of our own! :)
