Jude is now saying mama all the time. Not really at me, he just says it over and over again while crawling around. It's cute. He has been saying dada for awhile now, and sometimes it sounds like he is saying hi dad. It's ridiculously cute. Especially when Jesse responds with hi jude after.
I am actually really enjoying being a stay at home mom, I really feel that this is what I was supposed to do. Working was stressing me out, I think. And also worrying about Jude doing all his cool stuff without me there was upsetting me. Now I am the one responsible for the way he is growing up. I also love being able to get things done at a more mellow pace. I felt rushed to do things everyday between working and taking care of Jude. It is just all around better. And now I want to see all my pretty friends. I have all the time in the world for you now, and I want to hang out.
Anyway, Jesse and I are starting an Etsy Business. For those of you who don't know what this is (although I think most of you know), it is an online community store for handmade and/or vintage goodies. I am going to be selling canvas prints of my photographs. I am so excited about this. The store front is still under construction, but the business name is still Moore Photography. I really hope this will be a fun hobby to challenge myself some more. To view Etsy's website, click here.
In Jude news. His 5th tooth popped through yesterday. Crankers city! It's adorable. I never thought I would think teeth were so cute. :) He has also been standing for longer and longer periods at a time. He just will either stand up all on his own and then fall on his butt, or he pulls up onto something and then let's go. He also likes to launch himself from me to Jesse and visa versa, on the bed of course. He hit me in the nose the other night with his large hard head, I now know what it feels like to get punched in the nose. But the odd thing is, no matter how hard he hits his head he never cries about it. Jesse calls him his little bruiser. He really is one tough pretty boy. He has to be in a band.....Eli?, Hayvn?, Mia?,....are you interested?
Not much else is going on, well except my new tattoo. It is "Jude Ashby" on my right forearm. I LOVE it. I will post photos soon.
So I am getting fired from Starbucks tomorrow. I am not supposed to know, but I do and I am not looking forward to my meeting tomorrow with the District Manager. It was a stupid unlucky situation on my behalf and Starbucks apparently does not care about employees that have worked for them for 3 years with nothing on their record. They don't care about my side of the story and to them I am grateful for the push to now be a stay at home mom. I just hope that this is part of the works for a much greater outcome. I have come to peace with living at Jesse's parents the rest of my life (kind of) and will cherish spending every moment of every day with my growing son. He is worth the mistakes that have brought me to this point. But I do need encouragement since I was already in a weak state, my emotions on this are all over the grid.
