It’s the first day of March. It’s the last month of the first quarter of 2018. How are you love? How are your goals coming along? Are you reaching them? Are you rewriting or drafting new ones? It’s never too late to start.
Goals are never ending. Whether they be personal or professional, you should get in the habit of setting some. It could be as simple as trying out that new Thai restaurant in your neighborhood. Do something that makes you happy.
My goals are pretty simple. I have to get to work on planning Munch’s 10th birthday. My young man is about to be in double digits and I’m having an anxiety attack because he’s growing too fast. I just want to remember every inch of his face for as long as I live. So, my goals for this month are about plan, execute and remember.
-Book the place for Munch’s party
-Attend my nephew’s 4th birthday party
-Order the cake for Munch’s party
-Order the decorations for Munch’s party
-Plan the birthday party menu
-Attend my sorority’s paint night event
-Attend my sorority’s recognition dinner
-Take more pictures of Munch and I
-Teach Munch how to journal
-Reserve Munch’s spot in summer camp
What are your goals for this month? Anything special happening? Let me know in the comments.

In my Throwback Thursday moment I’m featuring my munch’s second birthday party which was a beautiful puppy party. Absolutely perfect! We had the cutest decor and cake and it was awesome. Again, we had a lot of folks that came out to his party and we realized that people just love our son.
Again an awesome blessing to have. He’ll be 8 in 6 months, but I wanted to feature him monthly up until his 8th birthday with a monthly throwback. At the age of two he was talking up a storm. Half of it we couldn’t understand, but we were happy there was sound because the pediatrican was worried that he was only saying 3 words clearly at 18 months.
He was a big boy who loved taking his time doing things including walking. He didn’t walk until 15 months and I yelled, “Thank you Jesus” because he was heavy. He was so laid back and this was the age that we discovered he loved stuffed animals. He still loves them and half of his full-size bed is covered with his animals. It’s crazy and kinda cool.
His second birthday was when he got the best gift ever…a stuffed dog that looked like our real dog, Bailey. He carried him everywhere and still has that dog. He named him Puppy Thomas. LOL!
Here are some photos:
In reminiscing about my baby growing up I decided to do a Throwback Thursday (TBT) posting on my munch. Munch is now 7, but when he was first born, I was in awe. I’m still in awe today, but I have a more laid back, you won’t know I’m in awe because you’ll probably use it to your advantage approach with him. His first year was filled with so many wonderful things and the best two that happened was his dedication and his first birthday party.
Munch was dedicated at our church at six months old. He was the cutest and fattest six month old ever. My church doesn’t use water to dedicate children. We pray over the child and affirm our ability to lead and guide children to Christ so that they can make the decision to be baptized on their own at some point.
This was a big deal for us because his dad and I met at church. We were in the same church choir, youth group and got married in that church. So, it was essentially coming full circle. We were surrounded by friends and family who had flown in as far as California to take part in this blessed event with a reception that followed afterwards.
His first birthday was in spectacular form as well because we invited everyone and their mom literally. Munch was still learning to walk and had fallen a couple of days before at day care and scratched his nose. I freaked. His first birthday is right around the corner. No way I thought. But, in the end it was the biggest brown eyes and sweetest smile that I remembered. Not the scratch on his nose. Okay, I’m lying. You can still see the scratch. LOL!
Here are some of my memories:
