Mother's Day Weekend

We just spent an eventful weekend in Atlanta to meet our new nephew, celebrate my friend Kim's engagement and then spend Mother's Day with my family.
We also got to attend Cooper's 9th birthday party, which was at a roller skating rink. Bob, who is a great ice skater, has never roller skated before and so I thought I would show him how to do it. Well, all I showed anyone is that I can fall really hard and land myself in the ER with a bruised tailbone and some whiplash. Days later I am still sore and picking Charlie up is hard, but worth it. I think my ego is more bruised than anything.
It was so nice to see my new nephew in person. He is a beautiful, beautiful baby! Our first meeting I bored him to death and he slept through it, but on Sunday I got to hold him for awhile! So sweet!!!
Kim's engagement party was in Charlotte on Saturday. We had a great time and it is so nice to see her so happy. It was a nice preview to how fun the wedding will be.
Mother's Day was nice. Everyone met at Mom and Dad's and we enjoyed playing with the kids and just hanging out.
As far as the Milhizers go, we are doing well. April was insane. May seems a little more calm, but still really busy. Charlie is changing everyday and learning things at a crazy pace. We are blowing kisses, saying ball, duck and Dada ( he doesn't say them consistently, but he can). We are almost saying Mama, but it will come. I am doing well. I have started working out with a trainer in addition to my runs with Charlie, but I haven't been great about any of it lately. Last week was out with a horrible cold, then out of town and now my back. I am also terrible about my diet right now, which is why I am letting the few of you that read this know that I am getting back on track TOMORROW! I really want to feel great for a wedding in just a few weeks. I know what I need to do, I just have to do it.
Enjoy the pics below. Hope everyone is well!

Charlie's First Blackhawks game

We had a great time taking Charlie to his first hockey game. Bob was so excited to see how he would like it. Luckily, it was an awesome game. Charlie's favorite part was pregame. All the music and lights were making him jump up and down and cheer along. The Blackhawks won 5-4 in overtime, so we picked a great game to start him with.

After the win!

Charlie's BIrthday Pics

Charlie loves his Grandmas!

Hanging with the Grandpas

We visited Bob at work on Charlie's birthday. Bob took the afternoon off to spend it with Charlie. Unfortunately, a high fever came on and we canceled our plans.

Helping Dad crunch some numbers

He already has the "Seriously, Mom?" look down. I appreciated him humoring me with his birthday hat.
Charlie's picture was on the morning news!

One of his birthday shirts...I know we are terrible!

Love how he is looking at me. He loved his cake!

Trying to get a pic in the hat at his party.

This stuff is good, but I can't quite figure it out.
