Well, Since My Very First Mother's Day Is Coming Up...

I've been working with Carter on saying a couple of new words. Sure he has "Mama" and "Baba" and "Mmm Mmm's" down pat. However, with this momentous occasion right around the corner, I thought it might be time to expand his repertoire.

 
The first set of new words? "Kate Spade."
 
 


Isn't she beautiful? I've been lusting over this new Kindle case for a while now and I just couldn't think of a better time for it to grace the face of my Kindle2. Perhaps Carter and The Husband will also give me a few free hours here and there to actually read a book, something I haven't done since before Carter was born. I know. Shameful, really.

The other set of new words we've been working on?
"Canon 50mm/1.4"




Sure, this one's a bit harder, as I've had to teach Carter his numbers, but I really think he's catching on. If he happens to slip and say 1.8 instead of 1.4, I would be just as happy, no doubt! This will be the third lens to add to my collection and the thought of it alone makes me a little weak in the knees!

And of course, what kind of wishful thinking post would this be, if I didn't include this beauty? We all know Carter needs an iPad2. Heck, with all the roadtrips we take up North to Hometown, New Jersey, this would make for the perfect roadtrip companion, no? I'm fairly certain I heard Carter say, "Mama needs an iPad2" just last night...



So, there you have it Husband, Loyals! You know, just in case you were at a loss when it came to some gift ideas for everyone's Carter's favorite Mama!

  6. I am getting a new lens for mother's day. Because the $325 Tiffany charm I want to add to my C necklace really won't fly. However, We were going to get an iPad 2 for Christmas for the family. But with a 12 hour road trip to Florida and a flight to Outer Banks coming up this summer, we may need to push this purchase up a bit for the entertainment factor. Oh, and because this Mommy needs to be rewarded after finishing Grad school. Right?!?

  14. How I wish that Kindle cover came in a ipad cover as well. Oh and speaking of ipads, as you know our little bambino already has one so he told me to let Carters daddy know that this is a must. You know anything coming from a unborn bambino is serious business!

  17. I have the 1.4...you will LOVE it! I don't take it off my camera. For real, don't settle for the 1.8 (while it is still a nice lens) go for the 1.4. There is a big difference.
