Our Trip to Vail, Colorado

From May 18-20, 2007, John, Cedric and I went to Vail with my parent's. They invited us as part of our anniversary present. We stayed at the Streamside Marriot Hotel. It was very nice! Cedric got to use his portable crib for the first time, and it was our first family trip away from home.

Cedric and I by Eagle Creek...talk about some rapids!

Snuggling with daddy. :-)

My First Mother's Day

On Sunday May 13th, I finally got to celebrate the holiday I've been waiting years to celebrate--Mother's Day! The morning started off with John giving me a card from Cedric, a card from the cats, and a book/card from himself. The book was the clever photographic genius of Bradley Trevor Greive called The Simple Truth About Love. How does he get those shots of the animals?---I'll never know. I also got a bear soap dispenser to go with my bathroom decor. The rest of my present would come later at the zoo.

Although, I would like to say that no matter what present I received I already got the best present of all...my baby boy, Cedric Shea.

I'm so in love with these two people next to me. I've said it before, and I'll say it again I'm so happy that I have my own family, and John and I did it together. I love him more and more each day for giving me the greatest gift I could ever imagine.

We went to the zoo with my parents to celebrate Mother's Day together. Afterwards, we went to Racine's for dinner and later on to Cold Stone for dessert.

John is going to take Cedric and I to Red Lobster on Wednesday to celebrate Mother's Day with just us. :-)

I thought it was cute seeing the goose family with their babies on Mother's Day. So adorable indeed!

Here is Cedric and me with my present from the zoo. A mommy and baby monkey clinging together just like Cedric and I do a lot. He loves to snuggle with his mommy as you can tell from the picture below.

Our Weekend with Pam

Pam came out to Colorado on Thursday, May 3rd to visit us and Cedric for the weekend. We went to Idaho Springs to eat at Beau Jo's Thursday night and for Friday we went to Park Meadows Mall to shop around and then eat at Cheesecake Factory....mmmmm, yum. Saturday was our baby massage class (officially, our last baby class) and then our DDR/Wii party...we had so much fun. John and I agree that was our best group of people for the DDR ever. Sunday morning John and I dropped Pam off at the airport, and we enjoy just hanging out together eating dinner and watching the Sopranos...getting very interesting. ; - )

Cedric's Firsts

Cedric had to go to the doctor on Monday, April 30th, because his umbilical cord stump was still attached. At 6 weeks of age it should have falling off, but it was hanging by a couple of threads. Of course the doctor barely touches it and it falls off. John and I have been messing with it trying to help it come off faster---no luck. Anyway, Cedric is stump free!

While he was at the doctor I had Cedric weighed, he is 10 lbs. 13 oz and 22 1/4 inches. He is getting so big!

Cedric had his official first bath on Tuesday, May 1st. The picture above is from that bath---how cute he is! :)

On Thursday, May 3rd, Cedric's Aunt Pammy came to visit him from New York. She's the first of the NY family to see him. Cedric can't wait to meet the rest of them. We our having lots of fun! I'll definitely will be posting pictures later of our fun. :)
