Check out the game Dante and I love to play in the morning when he first wakes up. This is the hardest I have ever seen him laugh. He is almost 3 months old in this video. Warning…it will make you laugh too.

Time at Home

November 13, 2007

Many people think I am crazy but I love staying home with Dante. I cannot tell you how many times people have asked, “Aren’t you bored at home?” So far I have not been bored. I have been trying to do things to not feel so isolated and ‘bored’. This morning I was playing with Dante and he was just looking at me with a smile on his face and in his eyes. I think that is one of my favorite things about Dante. He can smile with his eyes before his mouth is even in the smiling position. I feel so blessed to have the priviledge of staying at home with my son. I am so thankful for our family supporting us in that decision and helping us out when we are down to a few dollars in our account. Family is so important and I hope that by staying home, Dante will learn it as well. Here are some pictures of us and the family in his life.
