Everytime I met a new boy and would tell my mum about him, she would always ask, "Can I get excited?" And every time I told her nope. Well, the day after I met Jon my mother asked me that question and I told her that she could start getting excited.
How grateful I am that I met Jon three years ago this month. We had a very tumultuous courtship for the first couple of months that ended up in a break up for five months. But it was very much needed, we didn't know how to fight or argue with each other, so it always ended up with a break up. But after that five month separation, I knew that I wanted to be with him for the rest of my life. I am a very firm believer that a couple needs to have that fight, or that break from one another to decide if that person is someone that they truly want to be with.
Enough of that!
This week has been slow, yet exciting!
Liam got his first set of vaccinations. I think it was harder on me than it was on him. He was laying down so peacefully and the nurses came in and counted to three and then stuck him with the needles. And I couldn't stop my tears when I heard his cries. One of the hardest things about being a mom is allowing things to happen to my baby that hurt him, because I know that it is for the greater good. We came home and I just snuggled with him and he went to sleep. Later, Jon went to change him and noticed that the injection site was very swollen and touching it made Liam cry in pain. So Jon went to the store to get some baby tylenol and we gave Liam a dose, and soon he had fallen asleep again in my arms.
Saturday I had the opportunity to style Matt's mom's hair for her wedding! Rachel and I went over and Rachel did her toes while I styled her hair, then we helped her get ready and then we all went over to the church and proceeded to set up for the reception. The wedding was beautiful and it was lovely to see Matt's mom and her new husband looking so happy. I only met her this week, but it feels as though I've known her for awhile because of how sweet and welcoming she is.
