I am so appreciative of my husband working so hard so that i am able to stay home and raise judah. i think my heart would be torn from my body if i had to leave him in someone else's care. I pretty much have an amazing husband. If you know him I'm not telling you anything new :)

And tomorrow is our 1 year anniversary...goodness what things can happen in a year! I wouldn't have wanted to have gone though any of it with out Lance. I love him love him love him!

I am very very happy these days. The contrast from now to when I was pregnant is vast. I was so miserable. And now I am so happy. I am so thankful that life goes in seasons, when a bad one happens I am always assured it will end soon and when a good one starts I know I'm in for a great ride.

(ps...the diet changes I have made are making a difference for Judah's fussyness...not sure the thrush is gone for me yet but it's definitely improved...thanks for your prayers.)

serves me right

Once upon a time I made fun of my mom. Yes, it is true. I teased her and even rolled my eyes. Bad Jamie.

She was going on and on about the Candida and calling them the "yeasty beasty's" was so easy to make fun...

and now...the "yeasty beasty's" have come for me. serves me right for making fun of my mother. *dramatic sigh*

Thrush is not fun.

If you have no idea what I'm talking about...consider yourself lucky.

I am doing all the right things...taking my meds, giving Judah his...and yet, very little today I ventured into the world of my diet. I wandered the aisles of Whole Foods looking for sugar free, dairy free, gluten free items to toss into the cart. They do exist...there is very little choice. Oh well. "Food is Fuel" "Food is Fuel" this will be my mantra.

If it gets rid of the itchy ouchy yeasty beasty's and my poor fussy baby's tummy calms down it will be worth it.

Most things won't be a big deal to not have but I am very very sad about not drinking milk. I heart milk. :(

my little big baby

so yesterday I ran a couple errands. at the first stop the girls behind the counter asked how old Judah was and then proclaimed "he's huge!". at the second stop a girl walking by me asked how old Judah was and then proclaimed "he's tiny! was he a preemie?!"

I guess it's all perspective :)

I think he's tiny but compared to a truly tiny baby he's a big boy. Any way you slice it he's perfect. at least I think so...

because everyone should have this stuck in their heads too...

The singer's name is Eric Violette. - Part 1

They say a man should always dress for the job he wants
So why am I dressed up like a pirate in this restaurant
It's all because some hacker stole my identity
Now I'm in here every evening serving chowder and ice tea
Should'a gone to free credit report dot com [wee haw]
I could'a seen this comin' at me like an atom bomb
They monitor your credit and send you e-mail alerts
So you don't end up selling fish to tourists in t-shirts - Part 2

Well, I married my dream girl
I married my dream girl
But she didn't tell me her credit was bad
So now instead of living in a pleasant suburb
We're living in the basement at her mom and dad's
No we can't get a loan
For a respectable home
Just because my girl defaulted on some old credit card
If we'd gone to free credit report dot com
I'd be a happy bachelor with a dog and a yard. - Part 3

While I was shoppin' for a new car, which one's me?
A cool Convertible or an SUV?
Too bad I didn't know my credit was whack,
Cuz' now I'm drivin' off a lot in a used Subcompact.
F-R-E-E that spells free,
Credit report dot com baby.
Saw their ads on my T.V.
Thought about going, but was too lazy.
Now instead of lookin' fly & rollin' phat,
My legs are sticking to the vinyl and my posse's gettin' laughed at.
F-R-E-E that spells free,
Credit report dot com baby. - Part 4

When you're a rock star,
You get to party hard.
Champagne and caviar,
Tricked out exotic cars.
That's how I'd thought it'd be,
Except the party's not for me,
Cause some punk opened a credit card with my ID.
Free what,
Free credit report dot com.
That's the site I'm gonna hit when I go home.
They know how credit works.
They send email alerts.
Now I'm findin' out how bad reality hurt's . - Part 5

Check it out gas prices going up sky high
Ditched my used sub-compact for a 2 wheel ride
Now I'm rolling eco-friendly, but I still look bad
When the bike store saw my credit
They said this is all they had
I'm singin'
F to the R to the E to the E to the C to the R to the E D I T
RE to the PORT to the dot to the com
Come on everybody grab your bikes and sing along
[Its easy]
F to the R to the E to the E to the C to the R to the E D I T
RE to the PORT to the dot to the com

=== Part 6 "Renaissance Fair" ===

I was getting depressed 'cause of all the stress I was feeling at home
Had a poor credit score and the number would haunt me wherever I'd go
Thought I'd move to a place where my credit could stink and nobody would care
I just wish that somebody had told me that place was a Renaissance Fair!
Free Credit Report dot com!
Tell your friends, tell your dad, tell you mom!
Never mind, they've been singing our songs
Since we first showed up with our pirate hats on!
So if you're not into fake sword fights,
Pointy slippers or green wool tights
Take a tip from a knight who knows
Free Credit Report dot com, let's go!

Matchy Matchy Mother's day!

If you know us Lockhart's then you know we are all about the Matchy Matchy :) So it was only appropriate that Judah and I wore matchy matchy jammies on our first Mother's day.

And do you see the fabulous necklace I am wearing?! You may remember this post where I mentioned my love of the jewelry and wouldn't you know it, a little birdie made sure my darling husband knew about it :) What a wonderful first Mother's day gift! I adore it! I adore my baby! I adore my husband!

I know I haven't blogged much lately...working on getting Judah and I into a good rhythm. I am not a hyper schedule parent and I am not an attachment parenting parent...I am somewhere in the middle, taking what I like about both and finding what works for us. And so far we are both pretty happy.
I would write more but I need to go to sleep...babykins has been sleeping already for a half hour and I need to catch up!

If you are a mom and reading this I hope your day was fabulous!
